Online Chess on the iPad through FICS or ICC?

Is there a chess app available for the iPad that can play on FICS or ICC (real time chess online servers)?

There are several apps for the iPhone but I've not seen any HD version for the iPad.

Presumably the ones for the iphone "upscale" right? I used to have handy chess on my iphone for FICS, and it might upscale ok. It works well enough if you have wifi, which you obviously would if your using a current generation ipad. Be aware though, that Handychess is totally gimped on features compared to a FICS GUI like babaschess. I am not aware of an app for the iphone that remotely stacks up with the better GUIs.
