App resolution problems?
Just curious: is anyone having any issues with iPad apps not working on the new iPad? We have the "Friskies" cat games on our iPad (Jitterbug and Call-a-cat) and both apps are blown up to an unusally large size; only about 1/4 of the app is visible.
Any other apps doing this?
Am I doing something wrong?? Our kids (cats) wanna play with the new iPad too!

This is a screen shot on the new iPad :
It's not scrollable or able to go into landscape....
This is a screenshot from the iPad 2 (and how it's supposed to look)

The only app I've run into with a problem is The Oregon Trail: American Settler. It loads as 1/4 of the size, pretty much the opposite of the Friskies game. The weird thing is, the touch points on the iPad screen where you would touch IF the app was filling the whole screen are correct. That's to say, you can't touch the miniaturized app and it works. You have to touch where it SHOULD be. Weird. Hopefully will be fixed soon, I really enjoy that time waster.
Edit: Not sure why the picture flipped itself but you get the ideaiPhone 5 16GB White | iPad mini 32GB White | HTC One 32GB White | 2011 Mac mini, 2.5GHz i5, 8GB, 500GB 7200RPM |

A few more...
Adobe Reader and Upad Lite both have strange "blocking" issues where the screen splits the image up into blocks with space in between. Adobe Reader even has the issue when it shows their own "getting started" PDF. iBooks can display PDFs just fine so it is the app.
Given that this is across several apps now, I think it's more widespread that not. Why wouldn't apple get more developers in line to make the changes to the apps prior to launch. These errors make the apps useless. Great way to **** off the developers.
(I took a screen shot on my iPad but can't upload it directly)
