If I want a static black bar to strech across the top of the layout, would it be better to create a single 1024x60 image and past it in as a sprite, or create a 1x60 image and create a tiled background and let it strech across?
Both will look the same.
Im guessing the tile version will adversly affect performance on slow devices such as the iphone3? This would outway the benifit of a smaller file to download. Or perhaps the sprite, even if not being animated, reduces performance?
By performance I mean FPS and responsivness of GUI.
