    I have a slew of friends with iPhones. They want to see my iPad, but then when I show off its whoppee apps, they say, "Oh, I can do that on my iPhone." Smug sh*tz. :rolleyes:

    I want apps that aren't on their damn iPhones I can show 'em so they stop dismissing my iPad as just a bigger iPhone with no phone and no camera.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Lol yeah i have both now and the cool thing is that the iPad can do all the iPhone can with out a problem but not the other way around! Show them netflix! Or a magazine app. And tell them that you don't pay a monthly to stare at a tiny screen!

    They only say that cause you only have an iPad get both and show them a lll the cool thing they can both do together as one! Then look at their faces!

    Both are great products, iPhone is more of a necessity but I enjoy using my iPad much more

    for this very reason I keep my 'show off' apps on my front screen...

    The Elements
    Pulse
    BBC News
    Marvel Comics
    Smule
    MacUser Mag

    And if these don't impress offer them a game of Foosball HD.

    I have an iPhone but I find it very difficult to switch back to using iPhone versions of apps.

    Same here, LOL. I'd add to Paddy's list Osfoora HD (Twitter app), Plants v Zombies and...um...any website. Websurfing on iPad is way, way, WAY better than doing it on iPhone.

    Just hold your iPad as you normally do and tell them "Look, my reception doesn't drop out completely because I am holding my device". Tell them, "Look, I don't have to put scotch tape around the outside or put a silicone case around it for it to function". Say, "Check out this back made of metal and not glass, so if I drop it from a foot above the ground it doesn't shatter".

    Just some thoughts.

    Seriously, who cares about them. Tell them their iphone is clearly superior and that you are sorry you dont have one. Then go enjoy your iPad :)
