It’s iPad fever time and I just finished upgrading iSand for the big screen. More screen + More grains = more fun. Spent some time optimizing the graphics to maximize the amount of particles on the screen. The verdict is that the iPad’s processor rocks. I just doubled the amount of grains compared to the 3GS, and it’s smooth as can be. It also seems to handle multiple touch with no effort, which is all done on the CPU. It was challenging to get the orientation right. The main OGL view should not move while the toolbar and the status bar do.
Here are some screen shots:
