    Is there a way to run iPad-only apps on an iPod Touch or a Mac?
    More specifically I'd like to read a magazine called Light it which only runs on the iPad (which I don't have).

    I'm hoping for a way to convert the magazine or somehow emulate an iPad on my Mac (or iPod Touch 4th gen. although I assume there's a slim chance of doing the latter because of the too small screen compared to an iPad).
    Any such luck?

    Impossible. If the application is iPad only, it's iPad only. If it was universal in the iOS App Store, it would work on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. But if it's iPad only, that's simply what it is.

    No matter what, as of yet there is no way to use/emulate an iOS app on a Mac.
