    I couldn't find a post like this; if there is one currently in circulation I apologize for the redundacy. In any case, I figure I'd try and compile a list of all the apps currently available that take full advantage of the higher resolution display in the 3rd gen iPad. What I came up with is shown below.

    Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy
    Tweetbot
    Solar Walk – Solar System 3D Model
    Touchgrind BMX
    New York Times for iPad
    Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nations
    Readability
    Sketchbook Pro for iPad
    Infinity Blade 2
    Mass Effect Infiltrator
    The Early Edition 2
    Real Racing 2 HD
    Reeder for iPad
    Evernote
    ABC Player
    Labyrinth 2 HD
    Dead Space 2

    Those are all that I am familiar with so feel free to add on if you know of any more.

    Martha Stewart Cookies.

    (Yes, there's an app for that and it's retina ready) :cool:

    They've highlighted a selection of them but it's not an exhaustive list.

    I was just about to start a thread about this myself, but fortunately saw this one!
    I wish apple would update their list of retina apps, there's still the same 28 here in the UK. Anyone recommend any good retina apps?
    My favourite's got to be real racing 2 HD, outstanding quality since the new update :)

    The "Infinity Blade 2" does not have HD images. Check it and you will see that images suck. Same goes for Soundcloud....

    Somehow "optimized for the iPad" does not cover HD images, but probably just "under the hood". I'd like to see more of the HD graphics there as well...

    "The Daily" has been optimized for Retina and it looks REALLY nice. I wanted to subscribe before but this will probably push me over the edge for an annual subscription.

    The text/images/line graphics etc. really pop in The Daily app.

    I think they also are either having a free trial period with New iPad release or they restarted my 2 week trial when I added it to my new iPad, not sure which.

    Retina update ruins iPhone games

    Has anyone noticed that iPad Retina updates ruins graphics in iPhone games that support retina display? I just updated Dark Meadow and Epoch and both games looks blurry... before these games looked crisp, but now I don't know do I want to play these anymore. It's like playing with resolution 480px x 320px instead of full 960px x 640px.

    I attached two screenshots from iPhone 4... first is updated version of Dark Meadow and the second is non-updated version...
