iPad app

A software application developed for use on Apple's original iPad device as well as later iPads like the iPad 2 and iPad 3. iPad apps are available through the Apple App Store and are designed to run on Apple's iOS mobile operating system, which powers the iPad as well as Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch devices. 

While many iPad apps will run on all iOS devices, there are also numerous native iPad apps that will only operate on these devices. Apple also encourages developers to program their own iPad apps for download through the App Store and has released an SDK with sample code projects to help developers get started.
