There’s no doubt the iPad has been a huge success for Apple. It has sold in the millions and slots effortlessly into the Apple product line up. The more recent release of the iPad mini was, to many, an expected move from Apple, filling a rather large void between the iPhone and the full size iPad. As September rapidly approaches (the next generation of iPad is hotly tipped for a September release), this article looks at what we can expect on the next generation iPad and what Apple should probably be including. Read on for more.


Well, 2012 has come and gone, and we at AppStorm have seen and used many great apps on iOS. Though we surely couldn’t ever go through each and every quality app recently released, we’ve put together a list of a few of our most treasured titles that have earned a permanent spot on our iPads.

If you were one of the lucky ones that received a shiny new iPad this holiday season, you’ll find many gems worth downloading here. Some are free, some are not, but they’re all guaranteed to be worth your time. Take a look! (more…)

When it was decided that I’d become the new editor of iPad.AppStorm, I realized that I had a problem. See, I was an original iPad owner — I waited in line with the rest of the huddled masses for an iPad 3G back in 2010. But since that point, I had upgraded everyone else in the family but myself. My mother had a third-gen iPad, my dad an iPad 2, and even my toddler son partially inherited my mother’s original iPad (she calls it his, but she obviously keeps it well protected). Seemed like the whole family was ahead of me on the curve.

So I went out and made the plunge. Today, I’m the owner of a shiny and new 64 GB iPad with LTE in black. Almost immediately, my head exploded. Turns out I had been smart to wait. If you’ve been waiting to buy an iPad, you should heed my advice: go and buy one now. Let me explain why.  (more…)

Okay, so you’ve got your amazing new “resolutionary” iPad and you’re looking for the best way to show off the powerful display. I mean really, you’re going to want some breathtaking wallpapers and backgrounds that are the same resolution as your new iPad to go along with the device – so that people can see how great it is. Well you’re in luck, because I’ve managed to gather 100 of the best iPad Retina-optimized wallpapers, saving you all the work of searching the entire World Wide Web for them.

After the break, you’ll find everything from retro pixels and abstract patterns, to breathtaking views of New Zealand and flying birds, so you’re not going to want to miss this! Some of them are not the full 2048 by 2048 pixel resolution, but they work great in landscape mode, so check them out anyway. You’re going to want to download the largest resolution available, which is usually about 2560 by 1600 pixels. Get set for an exhaustive and beautiful collection of backgrounds and wallpapers!


On Friday, Apple’s latest and greatest iPad launched in ten countries around the globe. If you were one of the lucky people to pre-order one online before they sold out, or if you happened to make your way through the lines at retail stores, then you’ve seen the “resolutionary” Retina display that the device touts.

But what good is such a display without apps that are prepared for it? In this article, I’m going to show you twelve apps that are completely optimized for your new iPad’s beautiful 2048 by 1536 pixel display, taking advantage of every last pixel. Read on for the roundup!


On a Wednesday morning in early March, Apple unveiled their latest and greatest iOS tablet. Rumors had claimed that the device would be quad-core, but it turns out that the device only touts a dual-core processor with a quad-core graphics processor. It’s not all that disappointing though, because they also showcased the new iPad Retina display – it’s the best-looking display you’ll ever come in contact with at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. What’s crazy is the fact that this display exceeds the amount of pixels in an average HDTV by over a million. It’s really something you have to see, just as the event invitation Apple sent out last week asserted.
