Basically I'm asking if its possible to play my PURCHASED iPhone APP games on my laptop via iTunes or any other venue? I recently downloaded Civilization Revolution for my iPhone and I would love to be able to play it on my laptop. Does anyone know of a way in which I could do this? If there is no way then Apple really should look into allowing this option. If you PAID for it you should be able to play it through iTunes or another approved means. You pay for it, its yours...Anyone have any info?

    By your logic, you should be able to fly your car... it's yours and you payed for it. Sorry, but no... they are written to only play on the iPhone.

    You paid for an iphone app, not a computer app.

    3rd party apps are written/programmed by the developers for the apps to be used or played on the iPhone or iPod Touch, which run an optimized version of OS X. An app written/programmed for the iPhone and iPod Touch would also need to be written to run on Windows or OS X in order to use or play the app on a Windows PC or on a Mac, which would not be available via the iTunes app store which are for 3rd party apps approved to run/play on an iPhone or iPod Touch only.
