Apps Designed for iPhone 4 Will Fill the iPad Screen

iOS 4 apps on iPad screen

It seems obvious in retrospect to consider that apps designed for iPhone 4 will nearly fill an iPad display. Conversely, iPad apps will nearly fit into the new phone’s Retina display without modification.

The iOS app developer of Make Coffee depicts on its site how apps with a native resolution version designed for iPhone 4 will look on iPad (below); it’s the same as a pixel doubled version of a standard iPhone app, but in high resolution of course.

That’s very good news – as nearly all iPad owners I’ve talked to are not fond at all of current iPhone apps on the iPad, and most say they have very few non-iPad / universal apps left on their devices.  This should change that scenario quite a bit I think.

    Wow, that's great indeed… I got turned off whenever I use an iPhone app on my iPad and end up removing the apps/games altogether.. it's a silly reason but it just hurts my eyes :D
