It is not so difficult to port GMAT ToolKit to iPad but I'm not sure whether it's a right thing to do now. What do you think?
In other words, should Walker go to Apple Store today and buy iPad? :)

I think Walker should buy iPad because he loves cool technological toys :)

But seriously, here is my pros and cons:

Cons:
1. I don't like the idea that people will pay for iPhone and iPad ToolKit.
2. It takes time
3. It slows down GMAT ToolKit development for iPhone.
4. Not so many users in near future.

Pros:
1. Better adaptation for iPad platform.

If I can adapt the iPhone app to iPad platform, I would go that way...

I don't advise spending time in developing the same application again. As Apple says, all iPhone apps will work on the iPad, and since GMAT Toolkit is resolution independent (I suppose !!!), we don't need one for the iPad.

Agreed. All apps will be forward compatible, so it should work. Anyone here order one?

So, GMAT ToolKit works on iPad but after using other iPad apps, it looks weird....

Viewing the forum on safari via iPad. The font is huge and it defaults to the mobile version. Can the forum be viewed in its standard form?

Its more of an OS issue than a forum issue, I have the same issue when I browse on my iphone...

It seems that it would be better for me to wait a little bit. Moreover, some of developers said that it's possible to create one app for both iPhone and iPad and it's a way to go not now but in near future.

Thanks!
