    Used to when there were no universal apps (mostly games).

    Remember buying Plants vs Zombies both times.

    Most games are universal now though which is a good thing.

    Sometimes but I have very few apps on my iPad. If more apps would sync progress over iCloud I would have many more

    No, I only buy the iPad version. Most of them work better on it.

    This is why I haven't played any of the Angry Birds games. I don't mind paying for both versions, but I'll be damned if I have to repeat levels on both devices to keep in sync.

    Feel the same way. I've had angry birds on my iPad for over a year now and I've maybe played 10 levels because I'm so much further on my iPhone why should I have to play them again just sync!

    Only a few that have HD versions for the ipad.
    They look a little better on the ipad and are more optimized for that size screen.

    Thank you. You'd think with a full keyboard a available people (kids) would type properly.

    No since most of the apps are universal, however, there are some applications that are better suited for a tablet.

    If the Apps have a separate iPad HD app. Progress and achievements don't match. So not only do you have to repeat work... achievements don't compare with friends.

    If I really must have such an App. I buy the iPhone version. Play it 2x'd on iPad. Retina apps on Retina IPad don't look bad. Then acheivements match with Dad and a few friends who only have iPhones.

    It amazes me there are still third rate illiterate devs that haven't read about Universal Apps and iCloud sync.

    Like Cut The Rope. iPhone version, on it and iPad. It syncs, achievements all match friends. And really, Retina phone graphics on Retina iPad, no negative impact in play-ability. It's aweful on an iPad 2 though.
