What is the window size of direct canvas? I have a game with a 800x60 layout and exported it to direct canvas. The visible part in the iphone seems to be bigger than 800x600 because I sprites outside the layout boundaries in the iphone screen.

What are the screen sizes for iphone and ipads?

What ever you make it?

"I have a game with a 800x60 layout and exported it to direct canvas. The visible part in the iphone seems to be bigger than 800x600 because I sprites outside the layout boundaries in the iphone screen."
As stated here, your problem may be the fact your not taking pixel density into account. You have to worry about more then just the resolution.

"What are the screen sizes for iphone and ipads?"
Take a look here. That should help you out, but you can simply Google easy facts like that. Don't forget.

Hope that helps, but I'm haven't developed on mobile much. Good luck.DiGiCORE2012-09-08 06:05:15

The size of the window is the size of the device screen. It can be nearly any size at all. You cannot rely on any particular size. See supporting multiple screen sizes.

Thank you both! I followed the manual article and made the layout wider as a catch-all.
