Leave a comment below and let us know which universal apps are your favorite? Which ones do you think offer the best experience that’s been custom-tailored to fully take advantage of both the iPhone and iPad?

    Hmm. I’m looking forward to playing with The Heist from MacHeist. and Candy Train is a deceptively simple and addictive game.

    I use Puffin for Flash sites and the 360 Browser for tabbed browsing.

    I’m also often surprised that iBooks is so handy and doesn’t come automatically loaded. Every time I get a document from a Windows user, I’m delighted to see it load up and save in iBooks.

    Twitter, Netflix and Google Earth.

    It is interesting to see the layout difference between iPhone and iPad.
