This is probably a pretty novice question.

I already have a iPhone and plan on getting the new iPad. My question is how am I able to tell which apps work both on the iPhone and iPad vs which ones you need to buy separately?

i.e. the app Things requires both an iPhone and iPad version. Is this true of all apps?

What about apps such as iMovie, Numbers, Pages etc.?

Just as an example, I was really impressed with the new iPhoto app. I think I will love having it on my iPad....and thought until I get it I might as well download it on my iPhone and just explore with it. The reality is though I expect I will get much more use out of it on my iPad. So if it is an app that I have to buy both on the iPhone and iPad, I think I would just prefer to buy it on my iPad.

Any advice on how I can tell the difference?

Cheers?

If an app is compatible with both iPad and iPhone, and only need to be paid for once.

Hope that helps!
