Since you were really willing to spend some money and bought the new iPad, you must now be thinking about stuff you want to do with its ‘resolutionary’ new display and four-times-more-powerful graphics processor. Well don’t worry, we can help you.
First of all, get some new HD content such as HD movies, videos TV shows, podcasts from the web. You might want to start with Youtube and Vimeo for some stunning videos. You can also rent HD movies on iTunes, since 1080p content is now supported. Do try the ‘Yosemite HD’ video. It is absolutely stunning on any screen and we are sure it would be eye-popping as well on the new iPad! You should gather some hi-res photos to pinch-zoom them to eternity in the retina-land. Last but not the least, books should look crispier and more lively (as lively as they can get!). So do check out some bestsellers from the bookstore too.
“But what of the thousands of apps on the appstore?”, you might ask. There is an answer to that – As with the screen, the apps are upgrading too! Yes, new apps with higher resolution are popping all over the appstore. If you have purchased them previously then don’t worry. Your regular apps will be updated to retina-ed versions for free.
Anyway, you should check out these updated apps and games on your new iPad-
- Real Aquarium HD
- Sketchbook Pro
- NY Times
- Infinity Blade 2
- Mass Effect Infiltrator
- Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation
- Real Racing 2 HD
- iPhoto (new addition from iLife suite)
- Real Soccer
- HBO GO
- Dungeon Hunter 2 HD
- FIFA Soccer 12
- MetalStorm: Wingman
- Fruit Ninja HD
There are a lot more apps out there that have been updated. It would be better if you check them all out at AppAdvice.
At the end, a small advice for you- If you want to manage your new iPad easily, don’t sync your music collection just yet. The updated apps, HD videos, games, HD movies and even pictures will take up a lot of space. An easy illustration here would be Infinity Blade 2 which is over 700 MB in size. Since you have limited disk space on the iPad, choose wisely and stream your music, if possible.
