    So when are they coming, I've been patiently waiting for ATT to deliver my Pro, and been watching the App stores updates and non that I have seen being updated have been done so for Pro optimization, I would've though some developers would have pro version of their apps ready to go, I'd like to start seeing that happen

    there's a few out there but yes, i too am wondering where the rest are and when they're coming. surely the devs would have had access to the facilities needed to optimise well in advance of the Pro's release. even apps like Facebook haven't optimised yet.

    I'm not sure why this is surprising anyone. Devs have been slow to update ipad apps if at all. They aren't going to be any faster focusing on a device that is hardly out in number yet.

    I'll say it once again, 'It's way too early folks, this thing just came out'.

    It would have been great if tons of iPad Pro 'pro level' apps were already available at launch. I'm sure the devs wanted first to see if this thing would even sell (I suspect it has, in the millions already) before they committed the necessary resources needed to develop 'Pro' level apps.

    It would have also been great to already have a fully developed mobile operating system at launch. iOS is in no way a fully mature operating system, it's in continual development and on it's way to becoming iOS 10 (iOS X :eek:). God knows what the long time developers of the iPP already have planned on it's roadmap for the future, especially given Cook's stance on this product (eventually) having the capability to replace laptops.

    The hardware is already there. In time, iOS and apps will no doubt catch up.

    I don't think the developers will optimize their apps any time soon. The market penetration is too low (due to the size and price) and the return of their investment is questionable at best.
    Only time will tell if IPP is a failed project or not, but as of now the future doesn't look too bright.

    The one that really irks me is the Amazon Kindle app not being iPP optimized. The iPP is now my only iPad and the Kindle app does not look good enough scaled to read well for long periods (in my opinion).

    It's a little annoying, but then I think back to when I picked up the original iPad back in 2010 and feel okay about things. At least I'm not blowing up iPhone apps to a 10" screen. The apps will come in time, and using the ones that have been updated, like Spotify, has me very excited for the potential.
