I have an iPod Touch 4th gen and it appears to have the same exact hardware as the original iPad, though it seems to only go to ios 5.4 (or something like that) whereas the iPod Touch 4 goes to 6.1.6 I've been thinking about picking up a used original iPad in the 30-$40 range. Is it a safe assumption that if something can run on the iPod that it can also run on the iPad (since the hardware is the same)? Is there a website that shows all the apps that have a version compatible with the original iPad and which one them still work? The main things I want to do with it are: Read books watch Hulu, Netflix, HBO, AMC, ShoGo and youtube Play some light games; Subway surfer, Temple Run, Whale Trail and other simple low end games. (ALL of these run fine on the iPod). Am I going to run into trouble trying to do these things? Does the iPad run the same apps as the iPod? Though I don't want to buy one with a completely dead battery, battery life isn't that much of an issue because I plan on using it in the house near a plug. My iPod Touch 4 still holds a charge 1/2 decent. Is there anyone here still using an original iPad?
