Apple Highlights iPad Apps

Apple has begun highlighting third-party iPad-specific apps on its Web site, complete with videos showing off app features. The Web page shows offs a long list of apps such as the Popular Science + magazine, Things for iPad, and The Weather Channel.

Apple made its own videos to show app features instead of relying on developers to produce content. While most videos show the apps in action with just background music, the Popular Science + app also includes a voice over explaining how the app’s features work, too.
