    My iPad 1 16G has been busting out at the seams for the past year, I'm really into synths & music creation apps and many are space hogs, so the upgrade to a 32G iPad 3 is really needed. I'm so full that I can only have 1 movie loaded at a time. I'm thinking a lot about how I'm going to best utilize the 2 iPads since I plan on keeping the old workhorse. I'm also thinking a lot about what apps or games I may want to load first that will really show off the retina display, of course an HD movie is a no brainer along with iMovie and iPhoto but I haven't a clue as to what game may show off the best ....
    What are you loading up first?

    Marlene: The only app update I've seen (for the apps I currently own) to take advantage of the retina display is Labyrinth 2 HD. They came out with an update today specifically touted to take advantage of the iPad 3 display. I haven't played this game in a long time, but I'll for sure check it out on the new machine.

    @billb1950 I just noticed that the App Store has a list of "Great Apps For The New iPad" (see the ever changing banner on the iPad App Store homepage for the link) ... I updated several apps today without noting whether they were being updated to be iPad 3 optimized so this list really makes it easy to keep track.

    Marlene, I'll check it out. Thanks. And by the way, I just got an app update pushed out to my iPad 1 for Infinity Blade II for the new retina display. I don't play this game, but my family loves it.

    My suggestion isn't a game or a movie... have a look at the free Fotopedia apps. The "National Parks" one is the best of them, IMO. It's a collection of hundreds of beautiful photos, which look even better on the retina display.
