    This is the first time I've heard you can get the iPad version of an app if you already have the iPhone version. Do you have any source info on this??

    He must be referring to apps that have been updated to Universal versions that have both the iPhone and iPad versions in one.

    iVerse Comics
    Wordpress
    Pandora Radio

    LogMeIn Ignition updated for free to support iPad. That is one I am really looking forward to as the iPhone was was a bit slow (I assume due to processor speed) and also it was really a pain to use on such a small screen.

    On the iPad, it will be like using a regular Macbook pretty much, though of course slower.

    It didn't work for Mondo Top 5 Solitaire. But, there was a price difference so maybe that's why I was charged for the iPad version. I noticed a price difference with Enigmo too. After what happened with Mondo Top 5 Solitaire I was afraid to pull the trigger for the iPad version of Enigmo so I left that one alone :eek:
    Looks like you don't know if it will work (not being charged for the iPad version when you own the iPhone version) until you download it and then it's too late.

    TabToolkit - a premium guitar tab viewing, downloading and database keeping app. I wouldn't have thought a $9.99 iPhone app would give up a free ipad version for owners of the iPhone app, but they did. I'm very excited!!! I hope they do the same for guitartoolkit
