I am finding the Retina display to be both a blessing and a curse. When an app works well with the retina display, it is fantastic. But if it does not work well with the retina display, it is a real hassle.
Case in point are some remote desktop apps I frequently use. I have been a real fan of Jump Desktop. It is both an RDP and a VNC client. I particularly use it as an RDP client with a Windows host. The display is spectacular. I use it with a 1680 x 1050 display from my Windows 7 desktop. On my older iPad 1 it was hard to view the fonts without zooming in. Now I can read the fonts fully zoomed out full screen.
The same cannot be said for LogMeIn and Splashtop Desktop. In fact both apps displays are quite blurry. Perhaps I should dig out my iPad 1 and see if this is caused by the retina display. I suspect it is. This is sad because Splashtop Desktop streams video over Wi-Fi without any lag. Jump Desktop is best used for business purposes and not streaming video.
I wonder if anyone else is using these two apps with the new retina display? Are you having issues with a blurry display? I hope this is a simple case of both apps needing to be updated for the retina display.
My favorite new app is the Splashtop Metro UI testbed. It allows me to remotely use Windows 8, with the new Metro UI gestures. Otherwise I'd have to buy a Windows 7 touch tablet, and put Windows 8 on it. It is quite a fun app, but the blurry display kills the mojo.
