    So I bit the bullet and bought the new ipad. Nice.

    I bought Newsrack (rss reader) to use on my Macbook Air. Can I use it on my ipad or do I have to pay for it again?

    When I load the App store, it's not listed as purchased anywhere, but there is no option to show my MBA purchased apps anyways.

    Nope OSX and iOS apps are separate and distinct
    You will have to purchase it for iOS

    What did the developer say when you emailed him/her?

    Writing apps for OSX and iOS is night and day, so I don't think we'll ever see the option for a universal app across OSes.
