It might be wishful thinking, but I wish there was an app for downloading audiobooks from directly to the iPad.

I'm very excited that Tab Toolkit has been made universal binary, as well as Metal Gear Solid, TextPlus, NY Times Crossword, and Stanza.

@C MLB @ BAT 2010 has it's OWN iPad app. They did update the iPhone ONLY app though for us MLB.TV subscribers so I can watch everygame, instead of just the free game of the day. I have lots of "bi" app updates. Pandora, IM+, Chopper, Yellow Pages, 300 Bowl, Bubbles, Dragon Dictation and Air Hockey

Will this make the apps larger and take up more space? Just wondering.

chris says:

@Adam hahaha, yeah. Good call ;)
@iMe i have seen file size increases for these apps, yes

Paul says:

Never occurred to me that developers would issue universal binaries. They should be applauded for doing so.

Nati says:

Implode has been the only one so far.... it is now called Implode XL.

sting7k says:

I get an error message every time I download an update, but it still downloads.

Zay says:

I've noticed many of these updates popping up, some of the most exciting updates are those to already great games. Metal Gear Solid received a friggin awesomely worded update. The update reads, and I quote " Updated visuals to enhance viewing on iPad screen". has anyone out there had a chance to run a game on the iPad?
