Got up early this morning with a project I have been waiting to get to--a "universal app" for my Seaborn app, which is currently iPad only. Some of you have been emailing for an iPhone/iPod Touch version, and I can now offer proof that it's in the works!
The idea is that the app developer builds a single app that works for both platforms, and in the case of purchasable apps, if you have already purchased it for your iPhone, you can install the same app on your iPad without another charge.
Here's what I have so far--and trust me it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Seaborn is a Navigation controller type app, but on the iPad it uses features that are iPad specific--UISplitViewController, etc. So, it's been a subclassing kind of morning.
Here's the current Seaborn iPad app
Here are a couple screenshots of the latest development--porting the navigation controller menus to both platforms:
iPhone menu--menu items will be changing, but this is the existing menu layout:
Here's the same menu on the iPad--with splitscreen:
