How to Make iPhone Apps Compatible in iPad

Sometimes it is normal when you want to make some apps in your iPhone available in your iPad. Since they are not available in the Apple Store and you can’t find any download links to install them in your iPad, you may be thinking about having the apps from your iPhone in the iPad. Such thing is actually doable and the apps can work well if you know how.

Here are some steps to make  iPhone apps compatible in iPad without having further problems like size doubling or pixelation. Keep in mind, though, that not all formats can be altered with the following steps.
