How to publish game only on iphone? or temporally take app off the market !

Well I have this app and my friend told my last night the graphics look bad on the iPad.. and I was wondering because most of my downloads at the start were for iPad. So this is a huge issue because I'm getting less iPad downloaders everyday so is it possible to only make my app available only for the iphone/ipod touch then in about a week or less ill release it for iPad. If not can you please tell me how to temporarily remove the app so no one can download it but it wont be deleted

    Rename your app to "game for iphone". And say an ipad version is coming soon.

    @jsorr2‌ rename my app to "game for iphone" or put it in my notes? You see thats a great idea but the only thing wrong with that is people don't read... I don't want to start getting bad reviews once they rate it its up there forever

    I mean the actual name of your game. Like "flappy bird for iphone". And say in the notes: this game was made specifically for iphone and will not function/look good on other devices. An ipad version will come out soon.

    You can update your game to semi-wipe all reviews

    Use your actual name and upload for iPhone only, then after you build new version for both iPhone and iPad you can upload that as Universal app. Just use same provisioning profile and that will make your uploaded iPhone only a universal app for both iPhone and iPad. I've done this it works just fine.

    @bbenk so when I publish on the gamesalad website I should go to iPhone section & Download that & send it off to apple & it'll only be available on iPhone / iPod touch

    Yes, and when your ready for it to be on iPhone/iPad just republish with universal and upload that and it will show for iPhone and iPad just use same provisioning profile.

    Ok I see,Well looks like your stuck with Universal then you can't roll back.

    @bbenk so you think my best bet would be just to take it off the market till my update is ready?
