If you’re an avid iPhone gamer and you’re considering an iPad, here’s one reason why it’s better for gaming: more points of contact.

Popular game Plants vs. Zombies, for example, has 5 points of contacts on the iPhone version, meaning you can simultaneously play with five fingers – more than enough for iPhone’s small screen. iPad’s screen, however, can accommodate more hands, meaning you can play in a pair, and therefore the iPad version of the game, Plants vs. Zombies, offers 11 points of contact.

It’s a neat little improvement that can make a huge difference, especially if you have a kid who can’t wait to take his turn on the device. To see how this works in practice, check out the video below.
