    Hi, I jail broke and installed retinapad today, it's running ok, no crashing. However, I have tested it on the Facebook app, and nothing other than the text has changed, the same on street fighter, photosynth, and the lotto app. The only app that has retina images loaded is Live Profile, which still has 1 or 2 standard def images.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, I can understand that there are possibly apps that aren't compatible, but all the reviews show that Facebook does work...

    Well...retinapad is only used for the iPhone apps you have installed on the iPad. It's simply suppose to make all the "jaggies" look smooooother.

    Which is what I was hoping would happen, however this isn't the case. Out of the 5 iPhone apps that I have installed and mentioned in my first post only one of them has had its sd graphics replaced by the retina versions, the other 4 apps are just the same as before, one of them being the Facebook app, which is the same app that all the reviews of retinapad use when showing comparisons, so I know this app is compatible with retina pad, but on my iPad it has had no effect.

    Go into settings>RetinaPad and make sure the switch is "on" for facebook.

    Yeah, checked all that, they are all on. I have even uninstalled it, removed the plist file, then reinstalled it. Still the same. Don't really know what else to try.

    Uninstall retinapad and give fullforce a try....easier than having to restore. If that don't work then restore.

    Just so folks can see the difference, here are two screenies, one from RetinaPad and one from FullForce, both showing the same screen in the same FaceBook iPhone App...

    And of course, I can confirm therefore that RetinaPad works fine with the Facebook for iPhone app.

    Which is why I got RetinaPad. I had initially gotten FullForce. And yes, while it does well for what it does, when I saw my Facebook look like that screenie on the right that f4780y posted...

    Blech!

    So, now it looks like the one on the left. Ever so much better! And, as far as I can tell, I've not had an app not work with RetinaPad (well, except for SBSettings, but that's ok).

    Well I restored, while most of Facebook now has a better resolution, some of it still doesn't, The Lotto app also doesn't , neither does photosynth, its odd, I will post some screenies when I get a chance.

    Mine don't look like that and recently they don't even start. I get the screen pop up then disappears. I'll post a pic from my ipad.

    This is all I see. Maybe something is interfering with it?

    Edit: this happens to any retina enabled apps. :(

    I just bought RetinaPad from Cydia and let me tell you, it is a good reason to JB the iPAD
