Mobile and Wireless: New iPad Retina Display Makes Productivity Apps Shine
The most impressive upgrade to Apple's new iPad tablet is the new Retina Display, which features four times more pixels than the iPad 2, allowing for razor-sharp text, richer colors and a vastly more brilliant display for everything from high-definition videos, photos and interactive applications. The Retina Display on the new iPad features a 2048 by 1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixelsin the same 9.7-inch space. The pixels are so close together, your eyes can't discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. The dazzling display also makes business and enterprise productivity apps like spreadsheets and travel managers even better and easier to use, offering more detailed images, richer graphics and more precise control. Even if the app isn't graphics-intensive, the overall clarity can make even the most mundane productivity application a pleasure to use. Here, eWEEK looks at 10 productivity apps that really shine on the new iPad.
