First Apple iPad apps revealed

We take a sneek peak at what's coming for Apple's slate PC


Here's a quick look at what to expect in the coming weeks once iPad-specific apps begin rolling into the iTunes App Store.

Finger Painting

Brushes, an artwork application created by independent iPhone and iPad developer Steve Sprang, promises to be a creative way to take advantage of the iPad's large touchscreen.

Sprang has redesigned his application to better suit the new device, allowing artists to create original images with just the touch of their finger.

Brushes on the iPhone has already been used to create cover art for The New Yorker magazine, so it will be interesting to see what artists can do on the iPad.

Games

Apple owes a big part of its App Store success to game developers getting creative with the touchscreen and accelerometer built into iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

During Apple's iPad launch, Electronic Arts showed off a version of its popular racing franchise, Need for Speed and Gameloft presented its iPad version of N.O.V.A.

Will gaming be as big a part of the iPad as it has been for the iPhone and iPod Touch?
