Thanks to Marisa, I now have Einstein running on my iPad. Very Cool. It's slow but just so neat to see it there. Kudos to Matthias, Paul, and everyone else who is involved in this project.
I have some questions. Einstein appears to only be an iPhone app, that is it opens in a small iPhone window with the 2X option in the lower corner. If I set the iOSEinstein preferences to MP2x00, it looks great. in 2X mode, it's a bit pixelated. If I use the other settings (iPhone 4, quarter iPad or iPad), the display looks awful. Very choppy, pixelated and hard to read in either the 1X or 2X mode. Is there a fix for this?
I was able to turn on the green backlight using the NewtTest function. Is there another, more direct way to do this?
I'm also getting the looping sound issues, particularly when opening the Extras drawer.
It's not a replacement for my real Newts but very very cool! Thanks.

There is another way - I am distributing Einstein for iOS using ad-hoc profiles, and I'm willing to use 30 of my allotted device counts for list members. All you have to do is get a list of other developers who would be willing to donate some of their allotted devices to more users. This gets around the AppStore issue completely, but each developer only gets 100 devices for testing so the load had to be distributed...
