The new iPad 3 is out today, and developers around the world are getting busy updating their apps to make the most of the new tablet's high-resolution Retina Display.

Third-party developers have had short notice to polish up their apps to make the most of the new iPad 3's eye-catching display, but there are plenty for new owners to get their teeth (fingers) into.

Apple's own apps have already been updated, and we noted their increase in size – Keynote has gone from 115MB to 327MB, while iMovie has ballooned from just 70MB to a massive 404MB.
