Free iPad apps for today, that are compatible with iPhone and iPod touch, include “Video Downloader Pro." Also, details about the new iPad Air 2 emerge, according to the April 16 report in G4Games. The iPad Air 2 will be the sixth generation of iPad.

“Video Downloader Pro” (regularly $2.99), is a full-featured, fast video download manager for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch that is free for today. With this app users can download and play videos without conversion, store, password-protect videos, create playlists and watch videos offline.

The iPad Air 2 release date is approaching. Whether the iPad Air 2 release date is September (like last year) or earlier (like some rumors suggest), suppliers have to begin preparing soon—and with these preparations come leaks about the new features of the upcoming iPad Air 2.

What is know so far is that the new iPad Air 2 will be 9.7-inches like the current iPad Air. The iPad Air 2 will probably be both thinner and lighter than the current iPad Air.

The iPad Air 2 will also have a faster processor (A8) that will be the same as the processor in the upcoming iPhone 6. The A8 processor will be faster and more energy efficient while keeping its 64-byte desktop-class performance. What's more, iOS 8, the successor to the current iOS 7.1 that probably will be introduced at the WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) on June 2, will come already installed on the iPad Air 2. It will also likely stay at the $499.00 price of the current iPad Air.

But thanks to analyst Ming-chi Kuo, who has credible sources in Apple's Asian supply chain, more details about iPad Air 2 have leaked. Kuo says that the rear camera of iPad Air 2 will be upgraded to the same high-quality 8MP (megapixel) camera that iPhone 5s currently sports. Also, iPad Air 2 will get the same “Touch ID” fingerprint scanner of iPhone 5s.

The free iPad app “Grandma's Garden” (regularly, $1.00) contains eight garden-themed games and fun, educational videos about gardening. This free app is jam-packed with activities that have Spring and Easter themes. Here children can count, match and color vegetables, collect flowers based on colors, spot differences, number groups and more.

“Video Downloader Pro – Download Manager and Media Player” is rated 17 or higher for violence, sexual content, nudity, drug, alcohol and tobacco use, profanity, crude humor, mature themes, horror themes and simulated gambling. This free iPad app, which is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch, requires iOS 5.0 or later and is optimized for iPhone 5.
