iTunes Move Trailers 1.1 is now designed for the spectacular Retina display on the all new iPad.
Aside from the high-res updates to the movie posters and other assets, the trailers themselves have also been improved. As long as you’re streaming them at “High Definition” (Settings –>Trailers –> Trailer Playback Quality), the trailers look awesome on the new iPad. If you’re watching them on LTE connections though, you may want to be careful and think about bumping down the quality settings a touch. Otherwise, your monthly data quota will be consumed before you can say “damn you movie trailers!”
Apple, iTunes Movie Trailers, – Free

The first weekend sales figures for the new iPad have been announced and they’re impressive – 3 million units sold. By comparison, the first iPad sold 450,000 units after 5 days and didn’t reach the 1 million mark until its 30th day. As for the iPad 2, while Apple didn’t release initial launch figures, it’s believed that over 1 million were sold in its first 3 days.
“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.”
The new iPad was launched on March 16th in 10 countries, and will be available in 24 more on March 23rd, including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand and Spain. You can check out the full press release after the break.
To all the early adopters of the new iPad who are hoping to add Cydia to their retina-tablet ASAP, fret not as the Dev Team have posted some encouraging news regarding its eventual Jailbreak. This comes on the heels of the iPad 2 running iOS 5.1 being jailbroken by hacker @i0n1c, which he shared with the rest of the community via several pics he posted on his twitter account. Here’s the “good news” the Dev Team posted on their blog:
Sparrow, my favorite mail client on Mac OS, has finally been released for the iPhone.
Sparrow is an iPhone mail client designed with love to provide you with an efficient and pleasant mailing experience. With its pane navigation, its new threading system and many new features, you’ll never look back.
Similar to the pane interface found on the Facebook app, you can use swipe gestures to reveal mailboxes, labels and folders. Swipe on a message and you can star, add a label, archive or delete a conversation. I’ve used Sparrow on my iPhone briefly and so far, am completely loving it (goodbye Mail app!). The one big downer is the lack of push notifications, which can be a deal breaker for some. Personally, I can live without it for the time being, seeing how this is the best 3rd party mail app I’ve used thus far.
And if you missed it earlier, Sparrow for Mac is still currently on sale at $6 (via StackSocial), though only until for another 12 hours or so. Check out the promo video and app description after the break.

We’re only a day away now from the official release of the new iPad and reviews have started to appear on the web. While most components on the tablet have been upgraded – the CPU, the rear camera and 4G wireless capability – it’s the retina display that stands out the most. You get the impression that once you set eyes on the high resolution screen, it’ll be pretty darn difficult to go back to anything else. Sure it’s a bit thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, but overall, the new iPad appears to be a heavyweight champ. Here’s the complete roundup of reviews from around the web:
Yesterday, Vietnamese website Tinhte.vn revealed the very first unboxing video of the new iPad, as well as benchmarking it with the Geekbench 2 app. Now, they’ve shared on their forums some new photos of the retina display in action. It is clear just how much sharper the screen is, especially when it comes to the text and app icons (notice the icons for Angry Birds and PvZ HD). It’s been noted that the retina-enabled apps are 2.5 to 3 times the size of the previous versions (google translation):
These applications developed by Apple has been upgraded to support the Retina screen, for example with Keynote (iWork software sets), this application previously only content of 115MB but its latest version is 327MB. Numbers from 109MB or 283MB up to, from 95MB to 269MB Pages, iMovie from 70MB to 404MB. On average, these applications increased 2.5 to 3 times the older versions mostly to support the Retina Display resolution, besides adding some new features.
Tinhte.vn, the website that benchmarked the New iPad, have also posted an unboxing video and images of a 16GB Wifi + 4G model they received several days ahead of its official release. Their initial impression of the 3rd gen iPad is that while it’s slightly heavier and thicker, the changes may not really be that noticeable to the user. As for the retina display, images look “really smooth”. Here’s the google translated version of their quick run-through:
EA Mobile has released what could very well be the coolest Simpsons video game ever made — ok, at least on a mobile platform. The Simpsons: Tapped Out for the iPhone and iPad is a freemium game that plays like SimCity and Farmville, where fans of the long-running animated series will get to (for the first time ever) build Springfield from the ground up and interact with all their favorite characters.
