    Hi everyone,

    I've searched this forum and google extensively but still can't find an answer to this question:

    Are apps downloaded on an iPad 2 smaller than an iPad 3?

    I know with the retina display app sizes skyrocketed so I'm curious about this. My budget is such that I would prefer at this time to purchase a 16gb WiFi only iPad 2 and make due with less storage than I would like, but I don't think I could if the app sizes are the same as the iPad 3. I've used the new iPad and found with my basically casual use 16gb was not enough so this is why I ask.

    Anyone have an answer for this? Thank you in advance.

    They are the exact same files. Apps are fatter now because of retina display. Get more storage...
