Do iPhone apps work on the iPad?

Can you run iPhone apps on the iPad or do you have to buy the more expensive HD versions?

Yes they work, some in a window and some stretched out across the whole screen.

They work, as matt says.
Some will look a bit blocky when stretched over the entire screen (ucweb browser e.g.), but they generally work.
If your iPad is jailbreaked there are tweaks in the Cydia store that'll polish low res apps a bit. Success is variable.
