Maybe we can take a recap on what game developers are to expect with regards to making MMO games for Apple particularly for this type of device called the iPad. It really is a challenge for Apple to make a difference in the gaming world. This is the very first step for them to do so that is the reason why the SDK being released is toward the gaming gurus that never stop creating game concepts for the industry. The software developer's kit is a very good tool on how to understand the physiological matter of an A4 chip processor and the updated operating system that runs the iPad device.
The touch screen concept of navigation that made the iPhone very marketable and popular among users is also in the iPad device. Such technology will surely make the iPad hugs a favorable market in tablet PC and may affect most netbooks sales. With the use of the SDK game developers can now take advantage of the technology. Imagine the navigation ease that gamers can experience. No more point and click but just the easy touch and go. It will be a very smooth transition during the course of playing MMO games.

Aside from the touch screen technology, MMO game developers can also tinker the 'flipping pages and screens'. It is a unique way of screen manipulation. It could make the scrolling technology obsolete. Reading e-books from iPad usually has this form of technology. One instances that game developers might use this is thru an MMORTS type of MMO games. A realtime strategy game usually requires several screen pages in one game sequence. So instead of scrolling the screen pages, one can just flip out the page and iPad easily displays the next screen in an faster rate. The motion of flipping screen from gamers just require almost half a second on time. As compare to a mouse scrolling screen which a players sometime need to hold down the left-button to correspond the lifting of the page screen and moving the mouse so it flips then release the button. How much time did we consume just by changing screens?. Maybe 3 seconds and even associated with exertion of force. This technology is really very promising to MMO gaming industry. Maybe it can pave a way to develop a bunch of casual multi-player online games.
