In yesterday's weekly refresh of the App Store's front page, Apple launched a new section highlighting apps updated to support the iPad Pro with design optimizations and new features.
Creativity and productivity soar when you pair great apps with iPad Pro. We've compiled some of our favorites that take advantage of its expansive Retina display and astounding performance. On iPad Pro, everything from drawing to multitasking to watching videos is a stunning experience.
The section is organized in six sub-categories, each grouping apps that have been updated with integrations for specific iPad Pro and iOS 9 features, such as 'Enhanced for Apple Pencil', 'Powerful Multitasking', or 'Desktop-Class Apps'. Featured apps include well-known names such as Evernote, 1Password, Slack, and OmniGroup apps, but also apps from smaller indie studio like Numerics (which takes advantage of the Pencil in an interesting way), LiquidText, Curator, and Workflow.
With the exception of Apple Pencil, apps featured by Apple in this section don't have access to iOS features that are exclusive to the iPad Pro, and they're not iPad Pro-only apps. Instead, Apple is highlighting apps that optimize for the iPad Pro's hardware and bigger screen to augment existing iOS 9 functionalities. Thanks to the 12.9-inch display, multitasking on the iPad Pro is more powerful than its counterpart on the iPad Air 2; with the four speaker audio system, video apps can be more immersive.
In a separate section, Apple is also highlighting games for iPad Pro – which include titles like The Room Three, Broken Age, and Geometry Wars 3. You can find the section here.
