The iPad 2 has a bunch of new features for apps to take advantage of: a faster processor, two cameras, a gyroscope, snazzier graphics for gaming.

Most of the apps you find on the app store will work on the original iPad as well as the iPad 2, but we're starting to see a few apps creep in that take full advantage of the iPad 2's improved functionality.

If you're looking around for apps for your new tablet, don't forget to check out our Top 20 starter apps for the iPad and Top 50 iPad apps.

iMovie

AU$5.99

After you have finished shooting your home videos using the iPad's camera, iMovie lets you polish it up like a dorodango, adding themes, photos, music, sound effects and a soundtrack; and, after you're finished, you can upload it directly to YouTube for all the world to enjoy, or stream to your HDTV using AirPlay.
