Much has been made of the Retina display in the new iPad that’s double the resolution of the earlier iPad 2. Flipboard is one of the first apps to take specific advantage of the higher res.
Flipboard says its new edition is specifically designed for the iPad’s Retina display, resulting in sharper, more saturated images in the magazines the company features. The improvements also extend to typography that Flipboard says is now “more comfortable to read” and closer to the visual feel of a print magazine.
"As people read more and more of their daily news, check social networks and browse photos from friends on their iPad, Apple's Retina display brings an entirely new level of enjoyment to that part of our lives," said Evan Doll, co-founder of Flipboard.
In addition to the Retina display, Apple’s latest iPad sports a faster processor and voice dictation software.
