    I have been converting to apple for the past year or so, I have just added Ipad, Ipod, Iphone6. disease.... Anyway is Itunes the best/only way to manage IOS from a mac. Is there any way to play IOS apps on a mac.

    Thanks

    IOS apps will not work on OSx - they are compiled for a different processor and not the x86 that modern Macs use.

    I think that iTunes is pretty much the only way to manage a IOS. You can, however, use IOS devices without iTunes, but I think iTunes works better.

    I figured they would have a nice Bluetooth application and an IOS emulator for the mac.

    You can use the simulator within Xcode for development purposes anyway.
