    Er? I must have missed this, but I didn't see that in the app description...? That sucks :/ So what devices actually did get the hi-red graphics update?

    The iPad 3 and 4 - the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 as well as the iPod Touch 4G and 5G all have retina display.

    Erm, why would that be mentioned in the app description? You do realise that the iPad 2 doesn't physically have a Retina (high-res) display, therefore no game on an iPad 2 has Retina graphics, not just FFT?

    Yeah, I understand that it doesn't actually have retina capabilities, but there are other updates to the FFT UI in game that are very clearly crisper. It's confusing.

    EDIT:
    (And, apologies, I should have made it clear that I was referring to the hi-res graphics update, not the actual retina capabilities of the iPad.)

    Can someone confirm that IPAD 2 graphics remain completely unchanged ( no hi Rez textures added)?

    I can confirm; iPad 2 has no hi-res graphics or updated animations.

    But, there are low res non-retina ipad games and high-res ones. There isn't a fixed, single resolution.

    Sidenote:I hate the term retina. Is it a specific resolution, or a term like HD which changes according to technology (and marketing)? 720P was HD until 1020P became "TrueHD", and now most people don't consider 720P to be HD anymore.

    Damn marketers.

    Retina is a higher PPI, think print and DPI.

    Is it worth getting this version for an iPad mini or would it be fine just getting the iPhone version to play on my iPad mini?
    I would also save some money.

    So, is there any reason to update on IPad2? I notice, some people on iTunes are complaining about crashes, so I am wary...

    Based on the past couple of pages, it seems some people are confused about what the new update was meant to do. It wasn't introduced to bring the graphics to "Retina quality" (on any device), and the app description is careful to avoid any mention of such for that exact reason. The single biggest addition was the significant overhaul of the character artwork, which does affect every device, old and new; the improvement to the usability of the UI was the other core update.

    From a quick scan of iTunes reviews in the main stores, I have yet to see any complaints about crashes in the updated iPad version, and the crashes that did occur in the old version have been dealt with. So yes, there are a number of reasons to update, and no reason not to.

    I told you the updates are MAGICAL!!!Been playing the heck out of this..

    For those of you who are on the fence LISTEN TO APPLETINI...

    I've had this game on my ps1,psp or have played/tried every iteration of this title everywhere(even on emulation)..This version is the most definitive and best version of the game in my opinion not just by the way it looks but by the way it PLAYS..You can swipe the screen on battle mode to view perfectly what's going on...No other version has ever had that function since you just select tiles and turn the angles previously..

    There is a big reason why this game is soaring the charts both on the top paid and most importantly the top grossing section of the AppStore..You can even see that the ratings has significant increased..

    Quick question: can the save games in the iPhone version transfer over to the iPad version? I turned on iCloud for the documents on my two devices and nothing seems to be happening so far.

    The iPhone version's iCloud sync isn't working and a patch is being worked on. Once that is fixed the save data will sync between the two versions

    Seems to be syncing across from an iPhone 5 to an iPad mini for me, not ran into any issues. This thing screams on the mini. Used to play it on an iPhone 4 and iPad 2 and the difference in speed and performance is night and day. Yeah there's no retina on the Mini but it still looks awesome.

    It's soaring because a) it's on sale; and b)it can be redeemed from FreeAppSlots.
