Blurry App Info Pictures?

For what it's worth, I recently noticed that "small screen" iPhone/iPod parameter images on the website look blurry especially in the last month or so. On a Universal app the first 5 screenshots will look slightly distorted then the following 5 good. This is definitely a change from previously as I'm using the same device and even looks blurry on my standard definition computer monitor. It's not a major flaw but it seems like an unexpected decline in some screenshots, which look better on App Store than they do in the threads here. This is the case browsing with both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Hi,

Yes, this is a known issue. We are working on it, but some of the older games might not be fixed until their next update. New apps should be better.

The problem still seems to be occurring for me, even on new games. Both of these are incredibly blurry:

Yes I believe it's still happening for every app, including new ones, unless they have portrait screenshots.

So is this something that just can't be fixed or what? Still seems to be happening with every game.

It's an appshopper issue.
