Hi,
Is there a way to download (pay of course) and test an application that has already published on appstore and install it on the emulator iPhone/iPad SDK ?

I want to buy iPad or iPhone for xbmc control but first I really want to test it, how it works.

Many thanks

No.

Apps in the store are compiled for the ARM CPU architecture. Apps for the simulator x86.

so I need use source code (app files before published to appstore) to test it on iPhone SDK ?

Or a simulator build from the developer. Neither of which are all that likely to be available
