Apple's latest 4G-ready iPad has finally landed and if you are one of those fortunate ones to own the device on its launch day itself, you must have been mesmerized by its stunning HD makeover while looking at the Retina Display for the first time.

The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048 x 1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation and 3.1 million pixels - in the same 9.7-inch space. Apple claims it's four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. The screen resolution of the device is so sharp that words on its screen are sharper than words in print.

It seems that Apple wants the new iPad's users to experience the Retina Display to its core. The company has created a new section in the App Store named great apps for the new iPad, which is fully dedicated to apps that have been developed for the new iPad's Retina Display.

For your convenience, we've compiled top 10 apps that have been given a super high resolution update to correspond with the release.
