Free Universal Upgrades!

Now that the iPad apps are showing up in the store, let's compile a list of iPod games with free upgrades to universal iPod/iPad versions. Just open iTunes and update all your apps and see what pops up! There are even more games that I hadn't known were getting iPad versions, and maybe with a list we can discover and perhaps pick up some things to play with on the cheap!

Just for fun I'll include some non-game surprises, too.

10 Pin Shuffle
12 Solitaire Games
Air Hockey
Babo Crash
Eric Snider's Solitaire
Metal Gear Solid Touch
Mind Wall
Parachute Panic
Parcel Panic
Touch Tanks Online
Zombie Attack! Second Wave

Comic Reader Mobi
Dr. Seuss books (ABC, Cat in the Hat, Grinch)
Dragon Dictation
My Lists

Sorry, but I had 26 apps show up for iPad upgrades, and the iPad appstore just went live a short time ago. I am sure that there will be hundreds soon, if not thousands very soon....

If the lists start to get long I'll drop the non-games. I still say worth it!

I vote for keeping the non-game ones in the list. The TA servers can handle it.

Non Game: WordPress

1) Tried out AT&T tethering and did not have enough money for the pole.
2) Apple still hasn't fixed the no-hardware-keyboard bug.
3) Still can't use the "Cut" function on the AT&T bill...current 4.x issues

I'm ticked because Mirror's Edge is iPad-exclusive. Which means I have to wait 2 days to play it.
