Google  on New iPad

Here’s a little extra good news about apps and the new iPad’s lovely new retina display: even iPhone apps (those that are retina apps) now look miles better on the iPad.

I don’t have too many iPhone apps on my iPad, but there are a small handful – including Google+ (shown above) and Quora and a few others. These are now using their retina version in both 1X and 2X mode on the iPad and they’re looking much sharper of course.

Now if Google+ would just bring out a proper iPad version so I can use it in landscape mode too I’d be a happier camper.

Hat tip to everythingiCafe forum member Tinman for starting a thread on this.
