iPad Apps are live in the iTunes App Store!


Ah, to be young, and feel love's keen sting. Still waiting until after April (probably unitl Christmas), but I envy everyone else's enthusiastic infatuation.

Yeah, there will be a huge outcry about the expense of the apps. No more will you make impulse purchases at these prices.

They should have at the lest gave a discount to those people that all ready had the old apps !!!

I have like 8 updates saying ipad/support but they won't install on my iPhone anyone else having this problem??

Just had a bunch of apps get updates in the App Store. Unfortunately, it killed 2 of mine. Evernote and Dragon Dictation both got nuked from my home screen and won't re-install. WTF! They say "not compatible".

@CP - not sure how/why this should be true, but sympathize. For the rest, I just have to say I remember when the apps I needed were $99 to $500. You don't know how lucky you are to have been spoiled by 99 cent apps.

Seems the new versions of those apps require 3.1.3. I'm still on 3.1.2, so if I want my Evernote back, I need to upgrade. It'd be nice know that in advance!

Man, the app store was a mess before, it's a HUGE mess now with the iPad additions. They really need to start over and redesign that thing from scratch. Pretty confusing and unintuitive (ie. un-Apple-like).
I sure wish they had just made a completely separate iPad app store and not even brought up the idea of universal binaries (you could still get a credit for the other app by purchasing one for the other device).
