As Apple’s new iPad arrives in households across the world, developers are updating their apps to take advantage of the fantastic new Retina display. Truth be told, however, some apps look better than others -- especially photo apps.
As I recently sat in a restaurant booth flipping through the dazzling high-res images using the Fotopedia app (which received a Retina display update this morning), a waitress stopped in her tracks to check out the screen. She was studying photography, but hadn’t yet seen what the new iPad can do with artistic works. It’s nothing short of jaw-dropping.
Here are some of our favorite image-focused iPad apps optimized for the Retina display, whether for your personal portfolio of images, or just to learn about and admire the world around us.
