Given that the splash screen only takes up about half of the MP 2X00's screen real estate, I am thinking that the app was originally designed for one of the earlier, smaller Newton models.

I ran into a similar problem with accountable. There was one version
that worked with NOS 2.0 the rest did not. But I have been unable to
find this version. It probably requires NOS 1.3 :/
