Inside the iPad SDK: Bigger Screens, Continued Frustrations

Until the iPad’s release last weekend, Apple required developers to keep the details and their opinions of the application development tools for the device to themselves. But no longer.

Here are some highlights from Developer World‘s lengthy review:

  • Because the API is technically just an extension of the iPhone API, it will be very familiar to anyone who’s created apps for the iPhone.
  • To truly take advantage of the iPad’s larger screen, you’ll need to re-create your apps from scratch instead of relying on the built-in tools that re-size iPhone apps.
  • Mac-like windows and dialog boxes don’t work well on the iPad because of the touch interface.
  • The iPad is better for consuming content than creating it.
  • Apple’s app approval process still frustrates developers.
