    Apple tonight posted two new television spots for the iPad and the iPad mini on its YouTube page. The two ads, titled 'Alive' and 'Together', highlight some of the 300,000 apps made specifically for the iPad, using a variety of words to describe them.

    Apps shown in the ads include AmpliTube, Style.com, GarageBand, TED, iMovie, iBooks, Dinosaur Zoo, Toca Hair Salon, The Lonely Beast ABC, Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe, Vimeo, Rockmate, Glow Hockey 2 HD, and FaceTime.

    Apple has launched a companion billboard campaign, as well.

    If anyone can identify some of the other apps shown in the ad, I'll add them to the article.

    Excellent, thanks!

    I'm a fan. Been a while since there has been an ad for iPad.

    Not bad, but I think the recent Google ads have also been quite good.

    It's not ALIVE until I see an iPad 5 with thinner and sexier bezel.

    It's going to be a LOUD update and I prepare to dig DEEP into my wallet for it :D

    Sarcasm? It's been awhile since there was an ad for anything but the ipad.

    Simple and to the point, as usual. There's also a sort of grace to the ads that I like very much.

    No sarcasm intended. I see more for the iPhone, tbh.

    These somehow missed for me. Usually like apple's ads, but these are annoying.

    Not as bad as the Genius ads, but not really all that good either.

    These are a lot better than the previous ads. Just show all the neat things it can do. However, I don't like the music, and they should show more of the useful functions like web surfing and email that the iPad makes very enjoyable.

    That's what I thought, and checked out garageband, but have no clue how to put it on a single ipad.

    Meh. Lacks Apples charm we've come to know in there in ads. I do like the billboards though. They make more sense and have a meaningful purpose.

    Glow Hockey was the last app used in the "Together" commercial.

    I don't like these ads.

    All these random people are screaming words at me.

    Sounds like WHEEL OF FORTUNE!!!!!!!!
