Mac Apps That Need Retina Support

nextgenerationmacbookpro-150x150

I was listening to This Week In Tech – http://twit.tv/ and one of the issues they spoke about was the Mac Retina display and how people have issues with the display and app support.  So I decided to do some research.

Every one who purchased the Next Generation Mac Book Pro have had apps that don’t use Apple’s system fonts or haven’t had their graphical assets super-sized look terrible.  The Retina Pro’s issues are with up scaling graphics across a compact 15-inch display area that’s harboring well over five million pixels.

Still Frames on Websites from bad Slash Animations

Applications and Web Pages are fuzzy

The issue is Apple has a great product so far ahead of its time that there is no design support for it yet.  Applications are suffering from this as well just to name the few I found from my research

Microsoft Office 2011 (This is the product I have heard most of the complaints about)

Spotify

Winamp

Adobe Products

AutoCad Products

Skype

Dropbox

AntiVirus Programs

Mozilla Firefox

Google Chrome
