Does anyone know if there is any integration between the two that allows controlling running apps (for example) on your computer from your phone?BLUE COLLAR, GOLD SWAGGER! Go Pacers! Good season but you can't win them all!

well, i bought angry birds for my wp8 and i wanted it to play on my laptop with genuine w8 but i`ve have to pay it again so i`ve given it up... i thought microsoft said that if you purchase app for one platform, like wp8, you can play i on all supporting windows platforms, like surface or w8.. its not about he money... it`s rather cheap app for all the fun it provides but i dont want to purchase every app separately... is there any solution to his "problem"?

i think u r wrong.. they are different but apps in metro store are the same and i think i remeber that they said that you need to purchase only one license to play it on some other device. like surface
here is link that proves my statement:

The article that you pointed to talks about buying a WP8 app before getting a WP8 phone so that the owner can buy early to take advantage of a sale. It has nothing to do with W8/WP8 cross-device licensing. Microsoft does allow a buyer to install a purchased app on multiple devices of the same general type if those devices are also connected to the same Microsoft account; the device count limit is 5, I believe.
