An additional question which may be related: Why when I created a stage size of 1536 X 2048 for an ipad, the edges of the stage are way off the screen on the iPad. Therefore I had to make the stage 768 X 1024 for the stage to fit.
There is no pixel per inch or dots per inch on the Internet. DPI is used primarily to translate on-screen dimensions to some sort of printed material.
You have the pixel dimensions for the full screen of the device correct. 1024 by 768 for earlier iPads and 2048 by 1536 for iPad 3's "retina" display. Are you saying you are building the edge document at that 2048 by 1536 size? Does your design take into account any extra screen real estate taken up by the browser window? I don't know what the available browser window area is on an iPad3 because I don't own one. But if you want to send me one, I'll check it out for you.
My app is an app that fills the screen there are no browser elements.
It is a mobile app not a web site screen.
Also send me $700 and I`ll send you one.
Jerry is right in that there is no PPI that you need to set. If you're using DPS to author your iPad application, you should set the screen dimensions to 1024x768 pixels (or 768x1024) for "full screen." Setting it larger will actually not do what you want it to do, and the iPad is a device and has a much smaller amount of memory compared to your typical desktop.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Elaine !
