The iPad lends itself very nicely to apps that feel like they would make make great coffee table books. And now the App Store has a featured section for just such apps.
Some of Apple’s picks for the new section are not ones that I would’ve chosen, but others are definitely on my list of favorites for apps of this type as well. Here’s a quick top-of-the-head list of some of my favorite iPad coffee table apps (I’ll make this into a separate post sometime soon):
- Art Authority
- Life Wonders of the World
- Guardian Eyewitness
- Ansel Adams
- Ultimate Dinopedia
I haven’t spotted it yet on the iPad itself but in iTunes on the desktop you’ll find this new section just below the What’s Hot section.
