So I want to buy Angry Birds for Mac via the App store.. But does it transfer through so I can play it on my iPod? or vice versa? Or do I have to buy them separately?

mac apps are mac apps and iOS apps are iOS apps.

iOS apps will transfer between iphone/ipad/ipod. Some games wont like angry birds cause those developers have created specific versions for the iPad but most apps are now universal, they have an iPad version built in.

Mac app store apps are made for the mac, so those you can transfer between computers.

You have to buy them separately. Angry Birds isn't even a universal iOS application, iPhone / iPad requires you to buy two copies.

Edit: Too slow, I wish there was a way to delete your posts on Neowin :pinch:
