What better way to test iPhone apps on the iPad than to check out ones that I am involved with. Here is Lingopal:
It’s in full screen (2x) mose, and really is enormous. If you tilt the screen horizontal then the dislay can be read across a decent sized room:
Overall Lingpal seems to work well, and the speaker is a decent one, so the translations come through loud and clear.
This shot of the myTours Welly Walks app (free) shows the 1x size display.
Zooming up to the full size display is fine, but the photos start to look a little low resolution.
Overall text based applications look great, but graphics and photos suffer in the exploded view. Everything seems to just work though.
The iPad will be a great device for these tours especially in museums. I think we will have to get Nat onto some design work to re-imagine some of the screens.
