Retina Display iPhone Apps Look Terrific On The New iPad (Video)
A bold move from Apple back with the release of the first-generation iPad, was to allow iPhone apps to run on it. Apps would box-into the display and allow you to even zoom into them to take over the iPad’s full screen. Sadly, the problem was that zooming-in would turn any app into an old Nintendo 8-bit game show full of pixels. Apple’s launch of the New iPad has changed that. You’ll notice in our following video that if your iPhone apps have been enhanced to support the iPhone’s Retina Display, zooming them into the New iPad’s Retina Display will give you an image that’s just as sharp.
Obviously, this in no way beats the apps that are built to take advantage of the iPad’s screen. iPhone apps were designed for a smaller screen real-estate, so don’t huge buttons to be appealing, but at least you now have a much better option to run your favorite iPhone apps on your iPad, if these still don’t have a tablet version.
