Small World for iPad Tue, 26 April 2011 22:46
Does anyone know if Small World for the iPad also work on the iPhone/iTouch? The guy at the apple store said that all iPad apps work on the iPhone/iTouch, but I'd rather not find out the hard way especially when the iTunes store lists it as Small World for the iPad.
Thanks

The guy at the Apple store is wrong. I cant imagine how an Apple employee could have gotten this one wrong..

Not all iPad apps work on iPhone/iPod Touch. Only those apps that are marked with a + sign with the price tag are what is called Universal apps.

It takes allot of extra work to create a Universal app and you only pay them once. Pay and download on iPad = download for free on iPhone/iPod touch.

Its a fantastic feature, but not that many developers use it. And its kind of understandable. You not getting paid for the extra work you have to put in the code.

What is right thought is that all iPhone/iPod touch apps work on the iPad. Or at least runs. I think you can buy and download an iPhone compass app on an iPad but I have no idea if it will work (that is if the iPad has a compass at all).

Hope this helps you.

Thanks! - has Days of Wonder said anything about possibly porting Small World to the iPhone/iTouch?

Days of Wonder (DoW) has said that there are issues with the game working well on the iPhone or iPod because of size...so it would have to be reworked quite a bit. If they go to all that effort, it will be a while.
