    Welcome to iPadForums!

    If the apps you've purchased on your iPhone are compatible with your iPad, you'll find them in the App Store app, in Purchased. At the top right, you'll find "iPad Apps". When you tap it, you'll also find the possibility to switch to "iPhone Apps". Select it to find your previously purchased apps. You can download them from there.

    Hope that helps.

    Got to the App Store on your iPhone, select the app. Under Informations - Compatibility you'll see if it works with the iPad.

    If it is compatible, you'll automatically find it in the App Store - Purchased tab, under iPhone Apps.

    There are two versions of Scrabble in the App Store. One is free and compatible with both the iPad and iPhone. The paid for version is for the iPad only. So, if you have one version on your iPhone, it should be compatible with your new iPad.
