    What are the apps that are available/optimised on iPhone but not on iPad? I am planning to migrate from iPhone to iPad as my main device.

    So far I know:
    - Whatsapp (I know you can install it on iPad but it's not designed to do so officially)
    - Instagram

    What else?

    What do you use on the iPhone to begin with? There's lots of apps not optimized for the iPad.

    A lot. Browsing, social media, basic functionality (call&SMS, calculator, calendar, alarm, converter, flashlight, etc.), games, note-writing, music listening, chat.

    I also heard that calculator is not on iPad. What are actually apps that are not available on iPad?

    Tell us what apps EXACTLY you use. This might be a PITA to do, but it will help us help you (I promise! :)).

    The calculator isn't on the iPad, no, either is the flashlight because the iPad doesn't have one. You'll definitely find some good alternatives for them though.

    I can check one by one what are the apps which are not available in ipad by comparing it with iphone. I just want to know those that I am not aware of.

    From my own list:
    -instagram
    -bbm
    -whatsapp
    -line
    -calculator
    -flashlight
    -foursquare

    Majority are social media apps. Some apps' description said that they can be installed for iPad but I believe they are not native for iPad.
