    Let's say you have a multiplayer game called Spintwist.

    Can you buy the iPhone app Spintwist and have a multiplayer match with someone playing it on his iPad?

    It worked with my iPad and touch with the mancala game. It uses wifi or Bluetooth, so I don't know which it used though

    Yes, most games work between the two. For example I can play Brothers In Arms 2 with my iPad versus my iPhone. The iPad is running the hd version of the game. I have also tried NFS Shift, Real Racing, NOVA and exo-planet. All hd versions work vs the iPhone versions, which I think is awesome.

    That is actually a cool feature the developers put in the scrabble app. You can have your letters on your iPhone and use the iPad as a board. This has nothing to do with this question though because he wants to play against an iPhone not use it as an "accessory" of sorts. He wants the iPad to play the same as iPhone.
