Released early last May as a game optimized for iPhone and iPod touch only, Heads Up! has just been updated with universal support. As a result, the game is now natively compatible with iPad as well.
Heads Up! is an iOS guessing game that has you choosing a category deck and putting your device over your head in order for your friends to see the name, word or phrase currently displayed. You then have to guess whatever is displayed based on the clues your friends are saying to — or, preferably, yelling at — you.
With its newly added iPad support, Heads Up! now lets your friends see cards more easily and see you in a more amusing pose, what with the sight of you holding a large electronic device over your head.
Seriously, though, iPad support is a welcome addition to Heads Up!.

But it’s not the only improvement brought about by the game’s new update. In fact, along with the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements, the new update adds new cards to all category decks and, more notably, it adds support for sharing gameplay videos on YouTube.
The new version of Heads Up! is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $0.99 download. The game is now optimized for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later.
For a demonstration of Heads Up!, watch the hilarious video above, which shows Ellen DeGeneres and “Days of Our Lives” star Alison Sweeney playing the game in the former’s popular talk show.
