Question Apps

Let's say for instance I bough Flight Track Pro for my iPod Touch last year, and then bough an iPad. Would I have to re-buy the app to put it on my iPad? When I look at the pictures for a lot of the app i got, they look really different on the iPad than it does on the iTouch. Really confused on how this works.

Some are universal and work on both
Some are specific for the iPad
Depends on the app

Every single App you bought on your iPod Touch will work on your iPad.

If they are iPod/iPhone Apps, they can be 2x zoomed.

If they are Universal Apps, they will fill the screen, and probably contain extra content and features on the iPad (like Popovers, SplitView, etc.)

The only apps that might not work are apps that require a GPS (on WiFi only iPad) or a Camera.

When purchasing games on the app store. If they have the little + in the corner of the price tag, the app is made for both iPhones and iPads, so if you've bought the same app on iPhone, it's free on your iPad. If the game you want is the so called "HD" version and/or costs more, you'll have to pay.

That's what I like about the Apps that can largely be shared between my Ipad and Iphone.

Another great store is Amazon where books bought can be read on my PC, IPad and Iphone at no extra cost.
