Apple’s App Store on the iPhone has proven to be an unqualified success.
Since the store’s inception, the concept of the “app” has grown to overtake mobile computing, inspiring the creation of several competing devices and platforms built on the same technology.
What’s interesting about the iPad, however, is that it seamlessly runs all old iPhone apps.
That means that it’s built to easily integrate with the pre-existing App Store that has already proven to be such a success and that attracts such a huge amount of user traffic every day.
Users who are coming to the iPad are often already familiarized with the iPhone and the App Store, which means they’re already familiar with, and excited about, the world of apps.
In other words, the customer base for selling iPad apps is already in place, even though the device has only been available for a few short months.
