Is your iPad App retina display ready?

March 30, 2012 Breanna Hughes

The rumours were buzzing for awhile about what the new iPad would bring, and now that it’s launched and in the wild, there is one feature that really stands out: the Retina Display.

Similar to its smaller counterpart, the iPhone 4 and 4S, the new iPad has a beautiful high resolution Retina Display that has resulted in a 4x increase in pixels, at 2048 x 1536 pixels per inch. That’s a million more pixels than an HDTV. Unfortunately, users can’t take full advantage of the retina display until apps are updated to support this high resolution.

To update your app to support the new iPad Retina Display you need to supply specially designed images for the higher resolution retina display. Icons, buttons, spinners, checkboxes and list selectors are affected as well, so extra development time is required to create and add these new images.

 

For an estimate on the time required for Xtreme Labs to update your app to be retina display ready, please contact us at sales@xtremelabs.com.
