What Does iOS Universal Mean?


Under App Price Drops there is a section for iOS Universal apps, what does that mean?

Some apps are specifically designed for the iPhone - they can be run on an iPad, but will appear at a lower resolution. Other apps are designed exclusively for the iPad (although these cannot be used on the iPhone). iOS Universal simply means that an app has been designed for the iPad and iPhone (and iPod touch). It's kinda like getting two apps in one - since the iPhone and iPad are very different.
