coverflowView and retina display

Hello, I have a problem whit the coverflow image view and retina display.
All my images are saved at 600*600px whit name imageName@2x.png to indicate images are in high resolution for iphone4 display
Now, in the coverflow view they are correctly scaled but still pixelated.
Any suggestion?
Thank you!

  • The automatic detection only works on the icon and splash screen. For anything past that, you have to manually check the iOS version and load the images that way.

  • That isn't true, automatic detection also work in imageview and other objects whit the prefix @2x on the image name

  • How so? If you're explicitly setting the name in the app itself, how can it know to change? Would that mean it checks every image no matter if its there or not? If thats true, seems like it would be a resource hog.

    • the @2x feature works the same in native iOS dev too. When you have image.png and image@2x.png in your assets.. all you do is set image to "image.png". The system will auto check if you have image@2x.png. However I'm not sure why its not working with coverflowView
