The list of apps includes titles such as Tweetbot, Another Monster at the End of the Book, Infinity Blade II, and iStopMotion for iPad.

Apple unveiled the third generation iPad at a special media event on March 7 and announced that it would be available in stores on March 16. Pre-orders for the multimedia tablet sold out world wide early this week, and lines formed early at some Apple Stores.

The new iPad includes a high resolution Retina Display, a faster processor and improved graphics support, a rear-facing 5 megapixel camera, a front-facing camera for video chat, Wi-Fi, and LTE wireless data support on some models.
