Apple now accepting apps for the iPad

Can you remember what it was like when you opened a present as a child that required batteries, only to realize that you have none available? That’s what it would feel like if you get your hands on an iPad and it has no iPad-specific apps to play with. Sure, you can upscale your iPhone favorites, but where the iPad will really shine is with its own apps that really utilize the processor and screen space.

Anyway, you won’t have to worry. Why? Because a couple of days ago, Apple sent an email out to developers signed up to the iPhone SDK development program that detailed the plans for iPad apps. Basically, developers can now submit their latest creations for review, and providing they’re sent before 5:00 p.m. on Saturday the 27th of March, they’ll have a shot at being available on the App Store on launch day. According to the email, if your app isn’t on a reviewer’s desk by then, you won’t be at the “grand opening.” So, what are you waiting for? If you’re a developer working on a killer iPad application, it’s time to start coding. There’s only a week left to submit your applications for review if you want to be present on the App Store on April 3rd.

Oh, as a side note. It’s also now confirmed that the iPad App Store will be go live on April 3rd, so when you un-box your iPad and stop jumping around long enough to turn it on, you’ll find the App Store ready and waiting to show you what it can do. Excited? Heck yes!

    I'm really curious to see how the iPad functions as an e-reader. They HAVE to compete with Kindle to be relevant. ZDnet admitted as much:

    “The Kindle for Mac move was critical given that Apple’s iTunes will soon launch a book store…It remains to be seen whether the iPad is a Kindle killer, but it’s important that Amazon’s Kindle content be visible on Apple’s latest device.” (
