This might be a stupid question.  Can I use the APPS I have on my iphone & they will cover the whole ipad screen?


Dell Inspiron, Cox Communications internet, Windows XP, IPHONE 3G-S (16 GB) 5th Gen (30 GB)

    Yes you can. But it will be pixelated in full screen mode. The experience won't be as good either.

    under the APPS section in itunes the only ones that will take full advantage are the ones under "iphone, Touch, Ipad apps", right?

  • AppleCare60396 Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    Correct. You can also get this from those apps that are listed as "HD" as these are generally iPad only apps.

    Are you able to use facetime from my ipad 2 to a iphone 4?

    Yes you can, as long as it's over wifi : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4319

    When I got my ipad 2 yesterday & sync it I noticed it wasn't charging via the USB cord like my iphone one does. 

    Is it not desniged to do that? Will the AC adpter do it?

    yes the batt in the ipad can't begin to charge at the rather low

    0.5 amps an usb connector can provide

    and it's not alone other tablets like samsungs are the same I read

    The iPad requires more power to charge it than the iPhone or iPod, and most computers (especially older ones) don't provide enough power to their USB ports in order to charge the iPad at a sufficient rate - it will probably still be charging, just slowly (it will be a bit quicker if the iPad's screen is off).

     

    The wall charger that came with the iPad is the most efficient way to charge it - and though it's more powerful than the one that comes with the iPhone, you can also safely charge iPhones (or iPods) with it (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4327)

    I understand more now LOL

    "The iPad requires more power to charge it than the iPhone or iPod, and most computers (especially older ones)"

    this is wrong

    usb is spc'd to be 5volts and 0.5amps and that mean 2.5Watt

    any computer which differ from that in what it's usb port provides are

    not following the spcs of usb

    and if an usb device provided with more power then spces by the usb std malfuction can be sued into **** by consumers

    Still learning, why do the APPS in the secation "iphone, ipod touch, & ipad" under itunes on your computer have the apps listed the will work on the ipad but when you launch 'em they look like a normal iphone app (I know about the x1 botton in the cornor)?  Do you have to download the ipad app in the app store on you ipad?   For exp.  Textfree is made for the ipad as well but shows up as a normal app

    Universal apps 'work' on all iOS devices but show up small on the iPad.  iPad specific apps are designed for and show full screen on the iPad and will not 'work' on the iPhone or Touch.

    What I'm trying to say is, until the app devolper comes out with the app to takes up the full screen for the pad as well as the iphone It will be normal size?  As for the textfree app being normal size do I need to go download a ipad version since the one I'm using on my phone insn't working on the ipad?

    Yes, it will be iPhone size, not necessarily normal size.  There is no normal in this case.

    As for the textfree app being normal size do I need to go download a ipad version since the one I'm using on my phone insn't working on the ipad?

    Possibly.  I don't know what 'isn't working' means in your case.
