If I buy a Windows Phone 8 app and there is the same app for Windows 8 as well, will I be allowed to download the same app to this device (Surface/PC) too? Same goes for buying a W8 app and getting the WP8 app if it exists

Good question. I'm pretty sure you want to know if it's like the Apple AppStore hybrid apps for iPad and iPhone, right? Would like to know that, too. –  flooooo Oct 25 '12 at 10:01
    
Yes, something like that. If app A is available for WP8 as well as W8 it would be good if I don't have to buy it twice to use it. I mean if I use the same ID for both devices then it should work (I guess:) –  Ivan Crojach Karačić Oct 25 '12 at 14:44
    
Hopefully we'll find out when Windows Phone 8 devices become available in a few days. –  Rowland Shaw Oct 26 '12 at 16:25

For the moment, if we look in our Windows phone Dev account and the W8 app Dev account you have no possibility to interconect the app versions targeting different devices. There are some rumours about that becoming available, but for now its not possible even if the app developer wanted so.
