Apple InfoWorld's Galen Gruman offers a breakdown of iOS 5 capabilities that work differently across devices. From multitasking gestures, to calendar views, to image editing, not all of iOS 5's limited-availability functions make sense. 'Don't worry " it's not your mind playing tricks when that feature you thought you saw doesn't appear on the device you currently have in hand.'

...must be a very slow day.

Yes, there are differences between pretty much ALL iPhone and iPad apps where the iPad version has been written specifically for the iPad.

Yes, there are some differences due to what features Apple wanted the iPhone or iPad users to have, but as far a the API goes, you can write an iPhone or iPad app to be identical or as different as you like, your choice.

I'm not sure how this made the news. I am guessing this is the case in the Android world too, I'd certainly hope so.
