We’re absolutely thrilled with the arrival of the new iPad and its super high-resolution retina display. When we started Papers for iPhone back in the days we always secretly hoped that Apple would make a tablet, as that would be perfect for reading your articles. So when the iPad was introduced it was Christmas all over again for us and we couldn’t scramble fast enough to fully support it.
A few months ago the same feeling returned when the rumor-mill started to talk about a new iPad that would have a high-resolution retina display, just like the iPhone4. The secret hoping that this would be true started again as it would be nothing but spectacular for an app like Papers, having seen the difference on the iPhone already. When the rumors became more assertive over the last few weeks we knew it was time to start preparing for the big day.
We’re very pleased to announce that on this iPad launch day we also introduce an update for Papers for iOS that is full compatible with the new iPad, taking full advantage of the retina display. Seeing is believing, you will be blown away by the difference this makes in reading your articles, figures are much more vivid and text is razor sharp and much more pleasant to read. We’ve uploaded two screenshots that give you an idea of the sheer size of the Retina display.
To celebrate the launch of the new iPad you will be able to buy Papers for iOS for only $9.99 from the iTunes app store for the next 5 days. There’s no better time to join the revolution and download Papers for iPad. Enjoy!
