Texture in OpenGL ES 2 looks pixelated

Does that make any sense or my programming is way off?
Multiplying by 2 will be correct for the specific case you're writing for at the moment, but isn't particularly futureproof, and would mean you'd have to use different code depending on whether you're running on a retina display or not. That's fine if you're only writing for iPhone 4, but if you want your code to run on a iPad or an older iPhone (or a newer one with potentially a different resolution), you may want a more general approach. I do it like this:
GLint backingWidth, backingHeight;
glGetRenderbufferParameterivOES(GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_RENDERBUFFER_WIDTH, &backingWidth);
glGetRenderbufferParameterivOES(GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_RENDERBUFFER_HEIGHT, &backingHeight);
glViewport(0, 0, backingWidth, backingHeight);
Another comparison screenshot, maybe? The UIImageView in your previous one looks like simple linear magnification to me, so I'd expect GL to do just as good a job of it...

Yeah, the simulator's window doesn't look like an iPhone in retina mode for some reason. It should be the correct size for a retina display, though, whereas the iPad simulator window is somewhat smaller with a wider aspect ratio.
