    Maybe the same reason they have dedicated apps for iPhone and full iPad.

    They won't squash it down to fit, they will arrange the tiles for best viewing.

    I'm going to say font sizes.

    When text gets small on the ipad 2 display it can be hard to read.

    I think it's more a case of the original app not following some of the HIGs as closely as they should. I suspect quite a few apps will do a sort of "compliance" update, but I doubt it's anything device specific.

    I think that update was just big fixes and they added "works great iPad mini" just to let users know that it does work great.

    Exactly what I thought when I read the release notes this morning.
