I'm a long time iPad owner and I am scheduled to get the new iPad on 03/16. I really want to brag about the Retina Display when I show it off to my friends. I have tons of apps which should look pretty good. What about any podcasts, movies, tv shows? Any suggestions?

I cant remember what it was called but there was a fantastic space app, it looked awesome on the original iPad so assuming its updated it'll look amazing on retina. It was featured in the iPad 1 adverts if I recall.

Try UZU. It's very cool on my iphone but even better on an iPad.

1080p movies, detailed pictures and apps with a lot of text will probably be the most striking examples.

There were a lot of these types of apps. I think you mean Solar Walk.

Also OP, look for apps that have updated for retina. If this is anything like the iP4 launch then old non-retina apps will likely look blurry on the higher res screen. Think VHS on an HD tv type. Readable, but slightly blurry.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to show off your new device.

Safari. Believe it or not.

Just go to any website. Double tap to zoom in. Then make the text larger.

You won't see any pixilation. At all.
