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.

Remote control for your home

One developer is planning on producing an iPad application for the my:ro control home automation control interface.

The application will let you control power, lights, security cameras and more right from your mobile device.

There are other home automation apps available for the iPhone right now, but using your iPad as a control panel for your home systems would be a very cool use of Apple's new device.

Zen Bound 2

Game developers at Secret Exit have had a hit with Zen Bound - a cool game that tests your patience and contemplative skills as you rotate carved wooden animals and wrap them in rope trying to cover as much as you can before running out of twine.

According to early reviews of the game, Secret Exit isn't just porting the game to match the iPad's larger display.

Rather the game developer is enhancing Zen Bound with new levels, music, game play, and improved graphics that complement the beefier hardware capabilities of the iPad.
