10 App Stars For New iPad Screen
April 27, 2012 11:00 AM 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.
Press Reader 3.1
If there's one app that demonstrates the high-res glory of the new iPad's display, Press Reader 3.1 is it--and the reason has more to do with the app's ultra-sharp text than its pretty graphics. Press Reader 3.1 allows you to you read digital copies of thousands of newspapers and magazines from 95 countries. A publication's presentation is a digital copy of its print edition, meaning that each page displays columns of text in small font sizes. Optimized for the Retina display, Press Reader's fonts are so crisp you'll be able to read full pages of text without having to zoom in. It's a sight to behold. (The screen grab above doesn't do the app justice.) And Press Reader's clever SmartFlow interface displays scrollable thumbnails of entire pages too.
