Universal App - Free2“A universal app is a single app that is optimized for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices.” Source: Apple iOS App Programming Guide

“When you run the universal application on a small-screened device, you’ll see the iPhone version and when you run the app on your iPad, you’ll see the larger, iPad-only version. And these won’t just be blown up, oversized iPhone apps either – they’ll be custom designed apps made specifically for the iPad.” Source:

Prayer Prompter 2.0 has a custom designed user interface made especially for the iPad. It is not just a scaled up iPhone interface.
