Apple updated OS X and its suite of core apps to take advantage of the MacBook Pro with Retina display's 2880 x 1800 resolution, but the surprise announcement at WWDC 2012 left many third-party apps out in the cold. Major programs like Adobe's Creative Suite and others like Twitter don't display text or images that support the high-resolution screen, and that's not to mention the fact browsers like Firefox and Opera don't render text properly, either. We're expecting updates to roll in throughout the year, so keep checking back here to catch them as they come in.
