In this episode Rob Parker and I discuss the arrival of the iPad 3 and our initial reactions to the Retina display, LTE vs. 4G, Verizon vs. AT&T, "Heatgate" and a healthy dose of our favorite apps.

Here are some of our favorite apps for the iPad 3:


  • Touchgrind BMX ($4.99, App Store) – Multi-touch BMX game with gorgeous 3D graphics, realistic physics and natural controls.
  • Barefoot World Atlas ($7.99, App Store) – Interactive 3D globe that allows kids to explore the earth and learn facts about different regions.
  • Daedalus Touch ($4.99, App Store) – Gesture-based text editor for the iPad with a beautifully minimalist UI and DropBox syncing.
  • ...and the games I mentioned in my iPad games roundup (Sky Gamblers, Modern Combat 3, Real Racing 2 HD, Infinity Blade II and Flight Control Rocket)
