    hi all,



    whoooo self intro i'm a 20 year old guy from Singapore, and i use a 8GB ipod touch.


    i love my keyboard shortcuts very very much, and the one i love the most is prolly Cmd+R on iTunes, which allows me to access a track via Finder.

    and this keyboard shortcut works on Movies, Podcasts whatever, as long as it can be navigated from the top left-hand Library bar.


    so imagine my surprise when i received my iTunes gift card this afternoon and i started downloading stuff, and i noticed how i could also use the Cmd+R shortcut in Library->Applications which allowed me to navigate to the game's .ipa file in my iTunes library.

    so what the hell does this mean? am i able to save this .ipa file into my thumbdrive and put it into my friend's iTunes library, like how people are doing it with their songs?


    my guess is that Apple might've already figured this out and maybe when you save it into someone else's iTunes, it wont transfer into his/her iphone/ipod touch cus he/she didn't pay for it through the Apps Store.




    SO GUYS, could someone try this out, and get back to me? this is either the best damned thing i figured out today, or i might've just embarrassed myself in the whole online Mac community.



    keep it cool guys, and enjoy 2.0!

    Probably, but my guess is that you also need to Authorise his computer, as you must with music bought from iTMS.

    I might be wrong though, this not something I've tried...
