Since the iPad can run all iPhone apps, why can't I view all iPhone apps from the app store ? I thought they were going to make the iPad variety more obvious or up front, but not hidden.

I just don't see a way to browse all apps. Like games for example on the iPhone app store side their are categories for different types of games. No such thing in the iPad store. (I mean for all the compatible apps from iPhone )

Am I just missing it and haven't clicked on the right links yet.

Thanks,
Jason

    The iPad native apps are shown separately in iTunes.
    The double pixel deployment of the iphone apps seems to allow any app to run on the iPad with
    the sub par visuals vs the native iPad development standards.

    I understand how to run the apps, I just don't see them in the app store ON the iPad. I almost never do my browsing for new apps on iTunes on the desktop, I use the app store application on my devices (iPhone or iPad now). All I see on the iPad app store app is iPad specific programs when in the different categories, like games or lifestyle. If iPhone apps are compatible, which I know they are, why don't I see any of them on the app store as well, only universal or iPad app apps only.

    Thanks,

    In the App Store, do a search for iPad, and all of the apps will be listed.

    I think your not getting what I am asking for. I'm looking to see all the iphone apps in the app store application on the ipad. They are listed beautifully by release date, popularity etc... on my iphone. but no such choices on the ipad. I don't like to see just the new and noteworthy, but just see them listed as they were released.

    Thanks
