Make Coffee developer shows iPhone 4 app scaled on iPad

iOS Developer Mario Baluci of The App Machine has released some screenshots of his Make Coffee application for the iPhone 4, illustrating how the higher-resolution version will scale and render on an iPad device. Baluci notes in the company’s blog that the iPhone 4 native resolution application looked “terrific” on the iPad and actually runs at an almost full-screen resolution. The resolution of the iPhone 4 is 640 x 960 as compared to the 320 x 480 display used on prior iPhone models. By contrast, the iPad uses a 768 x 1024 resolution screen. Make Coffee is a virtual coffee machine novelty application for iOS devices. Version 2.0 will provide higher-resolution graphics for the iPhone 4, more advanced 3D animations and sound effects and Twitter integration.

Just because it can be done doesn’t mean it should.
UI Elements will be twice as tall and twice as wide, so a finger-print sized button will be thumb-print sized.
One High-Resolution iPhone 4 App is not a substitute for a properly designed iPad App.
