    If it's like the iPhone Retina update, existing apps will look the same as they did apart from sharper text. Bitmap images will look the same as before until the developer updates their app.

    I notice that Apple has already updated their apps (iTunes U, Remote, iBooks, Find My iPhone) for Retina.

    Other developers will follow...

    Yeah, I doubt there will be many apps that look perfect on the new screen. Basically, anything that contains graphics will need an update. Anything that uses *only* the system user interface elements (i.e. standard buttons, text, bars etc.) will get a free update though. Some games might look ok too.
