I avoid using iPhone apps on my iPad. Not only are iPhone apps not optimized for the larger screen, some iPhone apps may not run on an iPad.I don't have an iPad, but I am curious: Do you avoid iPhone apps that don't have a specialized iPad interface? Or are you generally happy to use iPhone apps and just double their size in the screen?
+1I have some iPhone/Touch apps that I keep on my iPad since I used to own a Touch.
Some are games that I'm fine with expanding and don't want to pay for the HD version. Same goes with some utilities that even though don't take advantage of the screen are still useful as is.
I still prefer apps made specifically for the iPad, if it's universal even better.
I believe that the higher-res art is only supported by 4.xx, so the iPad won't benefit from the Retina-specific iPhone art until we get 4.xx in the fall. Once that happens, hopefully the high-res iPhone apps will run at 1x in the same window as the current 2x apps run.besides speedtest, no. i thought with the new retina display coding the apps would look decent, but it's still too blurry and a waste of ipad's great screen.
