Pleasantly surprised, iPhone Apps look great on iPad 3 (Screen Captures)

Compared to the iPad 2, they look good.

Looks as if I've JB iPad 3 and used the RetinaPad extension.

I don't have an iPad of any sort yet to know, but I know the G+ app for the iphone has a terrible reputation for use on the iPad (I keep hearing complaints to G+ to make an iPad app).

Is it a lot grainier on the iPad 2?

I still don't understand why Apple doesn't show iPhone apps at 2x (retina-style) on non-retina iPads. 768x1024 should be enough to show a 640x960 app.

Yeah, on the iPad 2 it is BLOCKY like 8-Bit Nintendo.

Now if they can just fill in the black border, but that would be asking too much. Just jazzed that they look so good now.

I logged on to post this. Good quality text at 2X.

But I looked first instead of just creating a new thread :)
