When we started work on KME we tried to be prepared for new hardware and higher resolution screens like the Retina Display on the just-released iPad a.k.a. iPad 3 or The New iPad, as Apple calls it. We use CSS3 media queries to detect screen capabilities and if a pixel density of higher than 240 dpi is present, we kick into high resolution mode and display an icon of twice the resolution (four times the number of pixels) in the same physical screen space. It looks fantastic compared to the older low resolution versions and you can see in the photographs below.
Here’s another shot, showing more of the page, including some Retina-rendered text.
So if you have already deployed KME at your institution, you can rest easy knowing that your mobile app will look great as everyone gets their hands on the new Apple iPad, starting today.
