Any plans to make Ipad versions of games playable on iPhones?

Okay, so that would be a pain for the developer, a better question would be: any plans to make the iPhone version of games free if you have already purchased the iPad version?

I don't mind paying for good games, but I'd ike to play on both devices with out having to pay twice for the same game.

Also, if I bought the iPad, playing iPhone versions of games on the iPad doesn't appeal to me much, based on the fugly graphics/pixelation.

What do you think?

I think that would be fair for gamers.
Unfortunately if developers choose to make 2 separate applications (1 for iPad and 1 for iPhone / iPod) I can't see a way to make the other free if you buy one. Apple doesn't permit this.

There's a good chance Dribbles will become a Universal Build (right now is iPad only, to make it in time for the release.)

Pocket Legends is out for iPad, but I'm playing the beta version on my iPod.
