Apple's MobileMe Gallery on the iPad Apple

Apple today released an update for its MobileMe Gallery app, bringing full support for the iPad.

MobileMe Gallery is an app that allows subscribers to Apple's Internet services to view their MobileMe photo galleries. It also enables users to view any movies and video clips they may have stored on MobileMe.

Among the changes in MobileMe Gallery 1.2 is support for multitasking, a feature currently available on the iPhone and coming to the iPad with the release of iOS 4.2. Support for the iPhone 4's Retina display, and the ability to view a friend's gallery without having a MobileMe subscription, have also been added to this release.

MobileMe Gallery 1.2 is a free app available for download from the App Store.
