    I'm going to be getting an upgrade for my phone and I was thinking about getting The iPhone and I already have an iPad does this seem practical? Will I have to buy some apps again? How is it working out for you?

    I have both. Have had an iPhone since version 1. On second iPad. The apps I buy are usually apps that will work on both so I only have to pay once. Some are bought to be used specifically on one or the other.
    What I use works great for me. Glad I have both too!

    some offer the same app to work on both devices(called universal apps)
    if you see that +, it means universal, no + and its specific to that device.
    if its iPad only, it will not work on iphone.

    but 99% of iphone apps will be able to work on iPad and look like this, but they are adding the requirements slowly to make iphone apps universal(via updates to the app).

    there is an option covered by that right hand just below, that will show 2x, that will stretch the app, but not high quality(high definition) that you are used to.
    Most of these iphone apps, via jailbreak can make them fullscreen, by adding a certain tweak "fullforce or retinapad".

    only have to buy an app once.
    but example...slingplayer have an iphone app and iPad app, that you have to pay twice, cause they didn't make their app universal, not very nice.
    i don't see others doing this.

    Most work on both without extra cost but a couple require you to buy separate versions if you want the optimal experience on both (all iPhone apps will work on iPad albeit at a smaller size or lower quality).

    Couple of examples of apps I've had to buy for each device would be Omnifocus (iPhone version works on iPad but not as nicely as the iPad version). Also Quickoffice Pro required two purchases for optimal operation.

    I owned the iPhone long before the iPad and was pleasantly surprised to discover how many iPad optimized apps were automagically installed on the iPad when I first synced :)

    I had both, but it seemed redundant to me having the same thing on two devices and trying to keep them in sync (though this should be easier with the new icloud). I ended up getting rid of the iPhone and keeping the iPad, though the other alternatives for phones aren't much better, so I might be going back to the iPhone for my next upgrade (unless I move to sprint because ATT is becoming the most nazi phone service in existence)

    I have both!

    I purchase my iPad 2 the day of the release in the US, this was my first iPad and about a month ago my phone broke and I had to use my upgrade to get a new one, I end up with the iPhone 4 and I may even consider going to the iPhone 5 later.

    I have had my IPad since last August then the IPhone 4 since Feburary and could not be any happier. I have had the displeasure of working with all the Apple wanna be tablets and not one come close.
    Will upgrade ti IP5 , IPad 3 when time comes. Why would anyone choose any other smart phones or tablets than the Apple products. I also have an IMac, Mac pro and a new Mac air with an i7 processor.
    Amazing products which are simple to use, and secure to operate.
