Apple optimized its core tablet apps, including iMovie and iPhoto, for the new iPad. But look what else you can do with the gorgeous new Retina display.

This tasty cooking app starts you out with 30 free recipes, with additional ones costing 99 cents apiece, or six for $1.99. Each Appetites recipe features a series of HD video clips in which the chef who created the dish steps you though its preparation. Video quality is excellent, particularly on the Retina display, and the chefs' narrated instructions are easy to follow--even if your past culinary skills are limited to a can opener and microwave. If you don't mind bringing your new iPad into the kitchen--oil splatter and all--Appetites may persuade you to ditch printed cookbooks for good. (And may convince you to buy a waterproof iPad case, which can protect you from kitchen splatter and get you set for pool/beach season.)
