    Apps for the iPad 3?

    Does anyone know if apps purchased for the iPad 2 will work with the new iPad 3? I wonder if the change in resolution will require separate purchases for an update. Thoughts?

    they will work.

    It depends how they end up doing it, you could have the 2X like you do for iPhone apps. LOL iPhone apps may look really bad at 4x.

    Yes. It would be stupid if they didn't.

    The apps will work, but it will take several months before all of them get updated to work with the higher resolution. And some will not get updated, but should do just fine. They probably won't look too much different unless you look real close.

    I hope it would, otherwise we need to repurchase them or just stick with our old ipads.

    Same as with the iPhone move to retina. All prior apps will work just the same but the prerendered stuff like artwork and some fonts will not look as good on the retina display as they will be upscaled images. Anything vector based should look as good or better on the retina display.

    There are two possibilities.
    #1 apple is confident that current iPad apps display on the new device decently without requiring an update. In this case the iPad could very well launch right after the announcement.

    #2 current iPad apps do not look as good as when they were displayed on the iPad 2. In this case, apple would give at least one week after the announcement before launching the device, just to give developers time to submit enhanced versions of their apps so that they are ready when the device is released.
