Retina Display-ready Apps Up on App Store
Much has been waxed lyrical about the brilliant high resolution Retina Display on the new iPad; now, the spotlight has been shifted to apps that are made to take full advantage of the new screen. Yesterday, we reported that the new Apple apps look to be up to five times bigger in storage; there's now a full list of third party Retina-ready apps given by Apple to Tech Crunch. The long list is quite commendable given that it takes a substantial amount of time to upgrade existing games with larger images with better resolution. No comment has been made on the size of these third-party apps yet.
TechCrunch - When I asked Apple for a list of third-party Retina-ready apps (all of Apple’s apps are already upgraded) a few days ago for my iPad review, I was told that there would be a list ready to go for the actual launch on Friday. Sure enough, today Apple came back with an early list of apps. And they’ve pushed a new section of the App Store devoted to the new Retina apps. But I’ve also found several others that aren’t on their list yet. Below, find a list of the new apps you’ll want in order to take full advantage of the new screen.
Additionally, Apple expects the following apps to be approved soon (at time of writing):
- Roambi Analytics
- Roambi Flow
