Skype on my ipad 2
Where did you hear Steve Jobs say there were millions of apps for the iPad??
Apple states that there are over 65,000 apps made for the iPad. Is that not enough?

As far as apps for iPhone, yes there are a ton but I've also found plenty that are iPad rendered as well. When looking on the store if there is a "+" by the price of the app it's made for both and isn't as pretty as the iPad only ones but in the lower right is a 2x button that makes it full screen.
The iPad has only a year of app development, just like Android is a baby in the tablet world and a toddler in the phone world. In time they will both have plenty of apps for them,the bugs worked out ( heck we might even get widgets without jail breaking and customizable notification tones) and much improved from where they are now.
If I see a "+" next to a paid app I skip it and look for a free alternative, which there are plenty of.

Try flipboard I just got it last week and I love it!
I had the same issue with the most recent Friendly update - wouldn't load - but a reboot fixed the problem.
Try Friended for iPad. Works much better than friendly. Flipboard is good as well if you like the layout.
There are 80,000 iPad apps. There are at least four times that many apps altogether. While iPhone apps will work on the iPad, and even say so under the compatibility list, they are half sized, or using the 2X button full-sized but fuzzy.
You have to pay attention to what you are buying. If you look at the screen shots, it's pretty clear which apps are designed for the iPad. An app with a plus mark in the price tag is universal, and will adjust to use on either the iPad or iPhone. Those are great bargains if you own both devices.
Most of the apps I have that have the "+" are just compatible iPhone apps that happen to work on the iPad as well, but as said earlier, at a much smaller resolution. I'm starting to use only iPad apps that are designed for the larger screen. Most iPhone vendors have iPad versions. An emerging "standard" is to call the iPad version "HD" to differentiate it from the iPhone version (and to get a higher price). I periodically look for HD versions of my iPhone favorites.
As for Facebook, just use Safari and go the website. Works perfectly.
I've never downloaded a + app that failed to work properly on the iPad. Could you name a few? I'd like to avoid them.
The HD thing has been going on almost as long as there have been iPad apps. Some of the first games came out as HD versions. And yeah, many developers took advantage of that to raise the price. But some also added features that made it worth the price.
