iMovie

Boosted further by the new iPad's ability to shoot 1080p video, iMovie could prove an effective tool for composing film clips. It's useful for both consumers throwing together a home-movie moment and professionals who feel a few clips will augment a presentation.

The new iPad's faster processor can likely handle the demands of this dynamic (and for many people, very useful) app.

A Retina Display isn't only for images and film; books can also benefit from the ultra-sharp resolution.
