    This is probably a stupid question, and I think I already know the answer for it already, but I'm just curious.

    Is it possible to use your apps from iTunes and install them to your Mac?

    I mean, many Apps that you get from iTunes are compatible between 3 idevices (iPhone, iPod, and iPad), so why not make it compatible with another idevice (iMac)?

    It's just, I got over 100 apps, and I would love to be able to play most of those games and such on my iMac, instead of having to buy it all over again.

    Is this possible, or no chance in hell?

    Could there be a future update allowing this?

    One's is based on direct input and the other has an extra layer of abstraction. Without modification, the apps aren't compatible conceptually or technically. Yet.

    As much as I like picking up my MBP and turning it upside down, nothing changes on the screen. :(

    No, some developers make the most of the iPhone, iPad and Mac split; I have Flight Control on all three...
