Squeeze Control and Squeeze Control XL are two different apps built using two very different API frameworks. While the two apps do share some code, they are not simple ports of one another. Unless you would have wanted XL to look and behave exactly like the phone version, there really can't be one app for both devices.
Just got a Pre 3. I already have a Touchpad and bought Squeeze Control XL. Buying it again for the Pre 3 wouldn't have been a problem, but I was surprised with the steep price..
Would have been nice if it was one app for all webOS devices...
Look at it this way, would you expect a game include both an Xbox version and a PC version for the price of one version? Those two versions of a game will probably share more code than Squeeze Control and Squeeze Control XL.
I wouldn't have minded having an upgrade price for existing users for either app, but the App Catalog does not provide any mechanism for doing that.
