    Hi new here,

    Just got a new 64 gig 3g with wifi. I have a iPhone 4 so I am somewhat familiar with it. My question is when I use some apps like craigslist it starts out small almost like the size of the phone, but when I hit size x2 it looks funny like it is too big or the font is wrong should I change my display somehow or what seems to be the problem thanks

    Welcome to the Forum

    There are really three different types of apps....

    (1) those written for the iPhone
    (2) those written for the iPad
    (3) those written for both

    An iPhone-only app will run on the iPad but the display does not map to the larger size of the iPad screen, so the display looks 'pixeled', as you noticed.

    An iPad only app will not run on the iPhone

    Recent apps will run on either and automatically adjust for the different size screen on the iPad.

    So the app you have is an iPhone-only app and cannot be made to look any better on the iPad. Some apps come in two distinct 'flavours' - so check at the App Store to see if the app you're interested in comes in a form that can run better on the iPad.

    Hi,

    I thought there was an app called full force that could change it for it to work on iPad
