Barnes & Noble has updated its NOOK eBook app for the iPad to support the high resolution 2048 x 1536 pixel display on the new iPad.
That means you can view higher resolution books, magazines, and newspapers on the iPad than on a NOOK Tablet, NOOK Color, or NOOK Simple Touch eBook reader — but it’s not like B&N is alone here. Amazon has already released a Retina display-ready version of its Kindle app.
The latest Barnes & Noble NOOK app for iPad also offers improved highlighting. Users can also now choose to read in 1 or 2-column views when using an iPad.
NOOK 3.1.3 requires an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.
