Julian Horsey at Geeky Gadgets showed an innovative and comfortable way to make iPhone and iPad work in collaboration: the iPad iPhone Connector Clip!
That’s a DIY project made with plastic extrusion, a Dremel drill, superglue, enamel paint and sufficient chutzpah to put everything in place with good precision.
The same procedure allows for two iPhones, or two iPads, to be mounted together. Are there apps for that?
What if the iPad had some apps that are built-in in the iPhone, like Stocks, Calculator, Clock, Weather, Voice Memos, and Compass?
We couldn’t read a great feature article on The Unofficial Apple Weblog about the Missing iPad Apps.
