The iPad won’t be available until Saturday, April 3, but you can check out the apps starting now.
The iTunes App Store now has quite a long list of iPad-ready apps, with prices that are higher than iPhone apps, as expected.
Many of the applications are shiny new upgrades of some that are already popular on the iPhone. Flight Control, the air-traffic control simulator, and Brushes, the popular finger-painting application, for example, appear front and center in the store.
But some selections are brand new, like the Magic Piano application from Smule, the start-up behind Ocarina and I Am T-Pain. In addition, Netflix is debuting an app for the iPad that allows movies and television shows to be streamed over Wi-Fi.
