6 Simple Differences Between Apple's iPhone & iPad Apps

Apple's  iPhone and iPad are the 2 highly popular bestselling gadgets..,

What is the difference between iPhone & iPad Apps?
Moreover both the iPhone and the iPad are much the same in terms of what they can do but however here is 10 simple points,  difference between iPhone & iPad..,

iPhone is a phone
iPhone can be used to make phone calls
Whereas iPad is not just a phone
iPad is more like a netbook or portable personal computer
iPhone has a 480×320 touchscreeniPad has 1024×768 pixels (much larger one)
Is a smart phone that is used to:-

  • Make calls

  • Send text and email messages

  • Read books on

  • Play music and videos

  • Browse the Internet etc.., & and many more

    Is a much larger tablet device used mainly to:-

    • Connecting online

    • Reading books

    • Playing multimedia files

    Limited download of applications depending the storage capacity-and the purse of the iPhone owner (Few apps are free, while others cost to $1 or $2 for most
    popular apps)
    To make it clear; basically the iPad does all what the iPhone can but except making calls and sending text messages ( but with certain restrictions justsending of text is possible with some iPad apps which do allow)
    i.e 6 iPhone units can be placed on the surface of an iPad
    iPhone apps will work pretty much iPad (except those for making calls & appearing bigger to fit larger iPad touchscreen)But not all apps meant for
    the iPad will not work on the smaller iPhone (Apps native to iPad requires greater detail to take advantage of larger touchscreen
    space, if apps shrunk to smaller iPhone screen not look good & also not easy readable)
    Examples of native iPad apps won't work on the iPhone are magazine and newspaper appsiPad, a magazine spread looks great and is very readable

    Altogether it can be said that apps are better on the iPad than on the iPhone but all iPhone apps can migrate to and function well on the iPad, an aesthetic loss is incurred in the process. Apps that are native to the iPhone, when viewed in an enlarged manner on the iPad, look less sharp, more pixelated. One may see jagged edges and blurry parts on the graphics of these apps. This naturally results from enlarging or doubling graphics originally composed for a smaller screen. And this effect is called as "pixel doubling."

    And to correct pixel doubling, there is an option in iPad to view a native iPhone app in its original, smaller size. Thus, on the iPad, the app will occupy just about one-half of the screen. For some native iPhone apps, there is also an option to download a higher-resolution version. With this, the app looks great on the iPad as it does on the iPhone.

    The user simply has to download the correct version to enjoy the apps with all their graphics and functionality intact, there are apps that have both iPad and iPhone versions.
