So, iOrlando had been on-sale for 2 weeks when an email pings into my inbox:
“…when will you be upgrading iOrlando so that it works properly on an iPad?”
This user has bought iOrlando after being recommended it by a friend but she has bought it to use on her iPad. When she ran it she was disappointed to find that it only runs in a small window on her iPad and was wondering when we would be upgrading the app to run full screen.
The expectation of this lady that we would be releasing an update to make iOrlando a universal application got me thinking about the dilema that we keep facing with regards to our various applications with the release of the iPad. I wrote her an email to explain why we wouldn’t be making iOrlando a universal application and I thought I would set out my thinking here in case anyone else is wondering why as developers we aren’t rushing out to convert our apps. more
