Why interfacelift doesn't detect right resolution?

    When I go to interfacelift.com for some high res wallpaper on my ipad3, I notice the website detects the resolution as 768x1024. Even the drop down under each wallpaper shows iPad and iPad 2. I check the drop down option and they DO have new iPad (3rd gen) option, but obviously the web site doesn't detect my iPad 3 as is. Anyone experience the same thing??

    I think safari sends that resolution so websites don't look tiny on the iPad... Just a guess.

    The iPad reports its resolution as 1024×768. The iPhone 4 also reports its resolution as "half" of what it actually is.

    Interfacelift detects the default drop-down value based on your screen resolution, not the actual device you are browsing from, so that's why this is happening

    The Retina update to Backdrops HD was submitted to the App Store on March 20th. It should be approved by Apple any day now.
