Is there a limit to the number of apps that can be Hidden from view in Family Sharing?

I've just set up a Family Share and have issued invitations to a couple of family members.
I'm trying to take full advantage of the "Hide" feature that's available in the Purchased list in the App Store app, mostly to hide really old apps that I haven't used since the beginning of time.  These apps have been long gone from any of my iOS devices, and it has always bugged me that they still appeared in my Purchased list. It's pretty cool that Family Sharing allows people to hide some of their app purchases from others in the group, as this also allows folks to hide apps that they also don't want to see in our own lists.
The first couple of dozen apps that I decided to hide stayed hidden. However: now, no matter what I try, I can't hide any more apps.  I swipe on an app to reveal the Hide button; tap the button; the app disappears from the list; I go to another screen in the app; I return to my Purchased list: and the most recent Hidden apps are still listed.
This is driving me nuts. I'm wondering if Apple has imposed a limit on the number of apps that anyone can hide; or if there's something I can do to force a hidden app to stay hidden.
Advice will be gratefully accepted.

Hi, Gail

Not a bad suggestion, but it does not explain why an app refuses to REMAIN hidden on my iPhone -- as I explained in my first post:
> I swipe on an app to reveal the Hide button; tap the button; the app disappears from the list;
> I go to another screen in the app; I return to my Purchased list: and the most recent Hidden
> apps are still listed.
Given the clunkiness and general unreliability of iCloud - which rarely "just works" - it doesn't surprise me that hiding an app on one device doesn't mean the same app will be hidden immediately on other devices logged into the same account. I've learned to be patient and wait hours for changes to anything synced via iCloud to be reflected on other devices in the sync loop.  But again, this in now way explains why apps were not staying hidden on the device that was used to hide them. 
I've finally managed to hide all the apps I wanted hidden, after many hours of waiting and multiple attempts at hiding.  I am in no way confident that these apps are going to REMAIN hidden permanently, or until I choose to unhide some of them; only time will tell if iCloud decides to behave and accept my series of "Hide this app" commands to be honoured permanently!

  • Is there a limit to the number of Apps you can download to your iPod touch?

    I just downloaded a batch of new free apps the the App store to my Mac and then synced my iPod and it showed in the progress bar that it was transferring the new Apps to my iPod but when I checked it most on the new Apps weren't on there. Is there a limit to the number of pages you get on the iPod to add new Apps? I actually have 9 pages full now and if the other apps I downloaded are on the iPod where would I find them?
    They are a nightmare to reorganise into groups on the same pages.
    Thanks
    Kevin

    9 pages of apps is a LOT, though I have to admit, I'm about halfway there.
    It doesn't affect how many are SOLD/downloaded... it only affects how many can be used at ONE TIME.
    But you see, will you actually be using ALL 9 pages worth of apps at the same time? Not likely. And as time goes by, you'll find some apps aren't as useful as you thought. While others prove too useful and end up replacing a few others.
    For example, there are dedicated Facebook, LiveJournal, MySpace, etc apps. But if you don't do anything specific, and only blog, you could use one of the third party apps that allows you to blog to most, if not all of them from the same app.
    Do you need a separate app for football, then basketball and baseball, if all you do is see who won? Again, there are other apps that'll give scores for more than one sport... and even include various stats (RBIs, TDs, etc).
    Of the 80+ apps I've downloaded, I've flat out deleted from my computer a handful (cause they stink). And I've "put in reserve" a few others (sort of useful).
    Yes, I agree, there needs to be an easier way to organize them.

  • Is there a limit to the number of groups that can be created in BusinessObjects?

    Hi all,
    We are planning to implement a group structure where there a quite a lot of groups that has to be created. that's why i'm wondering if there is a limit to the number of groups we can create in CMC.
    Thanks in advance for your answers..

    Damien,
         I have NOT come across any limits but you need to be very careful on how many nested layers you create and if you are also going to use 3rd party security like AD &/or LDAP.   Then you will see some performance issues.
    How many groups are looking to create 2,000 / 4,000 / 6,000 ?

  • Setting port exceptions for Windows Firewall via GPO. Is there a limit on the number of exceptions that can be set?

    We would like to utilize GPOs to manage our Windows Firewall rule set. We have servers that have different requirements (HL7 connections, other programs) and our doctrine is to only open ports that are going to be used.
    We need to be able to audit and enforce these standards, so GPOs seem to make the most sense to me.
    The problem I am running into is when I attempt to define multiple Windows Firewall Inbound Port Exceptions. (More than 10) After "Applying and Okaying" I will go to verify the firewall rule-set but I find that quite a few of them are missing. It
    seems like I am limited to 8-9 port exceptions per GPO.
    I am unable to locate any documentation about this, but we can work around this by creating multiple GPOs. 
    Has anyone run into this issue before?

    > Has anyone run into this issue before?
    No, unfortunately. Our main server FW exception GPO contains 44 rules
    with port or program exceptions, and it works flawlessly...

  • Is there a limit to the number of apps you can put in a folder in Launchpad?

    I have one folder with 24 apps in it and I cannot seem to add another app to it.

    That would make sense as LaunchPad doesn't have a scrolling view. It should only allow as many as can be displayed on a single page.

  • HT204053 Is there a limit to the number of devices I can have on one account.  I have all two of my kids ipods, plus, mine, an ipad, and my iphone, and need to add one more.  I do this so that I have control over and can see what they are downloading.

    Is there a limit to the number of devices I can have on one account.  I have been putting my kids' ipods on my account so that I can manage their downloads, and control it.  Then I just create playlists for them specifically.  Now, adding another one for my youngest, but have no idea if there are limits. 

    Well the part about putting songs in the "iTUnes Music" folder I only brought up because it seemed you liked things very organized. You could use iTunes to so all the organizeing. Plus once you add something to the iTUnes library, if you change ANYTHING about it in windows explorer, like its name, change the name of the folder its in or move it to another folder, iTUnes "Looses Track" of it. Its not like other programs that "Watch" files and folders for changes outside its "iTUnes Music" folder
    But to have iTUnes auto search, you have to delete a hidden pref file. After doing this, when you open iTUnes again it will throw up a setup wizard, just like its the first time ever installing it. Its in this wizard where you get your ONLY chance to have iTUnes auto search and add files from the system. Just goto the link below and follow Scott P's steps

  • Is there a limit to the number of files one can store in a folder?

    Does anyone know if there is a limit to the number of files that can be stored in a folder? Or, is there a best-practice recommendation about this?

    I wonder how one would find a group of files within that folder of 2.1 billion < very slowly <

  • Is there a limit to the  number of photos I can include in a PSE 12 slide show?

    I recently took a trip to Ireland and...being the camera addict that I am ...took right at 3000 pictures.  
    Obviously -- I don't want to include all of them,  but I do have several hundred that I would like to put into a slide show.   Is there a limit to the number of photos I can use?   
    Also,  I notice that there's an option for adding a narration.    I'm  new to "12",   so ....  how do I go about this?
    Hope you can point me in the right direction. 
    Thanks so much,
    MarDee

    I just discovered that I have the trial version of Adobe Premier.   I've
    been playing around with it a little bit and NOW I wonder if it might not
    be the perfect program for me to use to create my Ireland travelogue.   I'm
    about to the point of thinking that the investment in the program &
    upgrading to the "real" thing will be worth the money.
    NOW...should I do this,  is it going to be better to leave the photos in
    their current size  (just a step below RAW)   or resize them down to the
    size used in email?    That being said --- what is going to be best for
    putting on a DVD to share with friends & family.   Looks like AT LEAST 1000
    photos.

    How long are My Photo Stream photos stored in iCloud?
    The photos you upload to My Photo Stream are stored in iCloud for 30 days to give your devices plenty of time to connect and download them.
    How many photos are stored in My Photo Stream on my devices and computers?
    iCloud pushes all your photos to the My Photo Stream album on your devices and computers, and manages them efficiently, so you don’t run out of storage space.
    Your iOS devices keep a rolling collection of your last 1000 photos in the My Photo Stream album. From there, you can browse your recent photos or move the ones you like to your Camera Roll or another album to keep them on your device forever.
    Because your Mac and PC have more storage than your iOS devices, you can choose to have all of your My Photo Stream photos automatically downloaded. In iPhoto or Aperture preferences on your Mac, select Photos (or Photo Stream) > My Photo Stream > Automatic Import. All of your photo stream photos will be imported into your Events, Projects, Photos, Faces, and Places folders in iPhoto or Aperture.

  • TS3276 I have a group of 114 members. is there a limit to the number of emails I can send from a group? If I choose this group it only seems to send to some of the people in the group. do I need to divide the group into smaller segments?

    I have a group with114 member. Is there a limit to the number of members I can email at one time. do I need to make subgroups so everyone gets the information?

    I'm not aware of any limitation in Mail, but many email providers have a limit on the number of addressees to help prevent spam. You might ask your email provider if they have a limit on how many addresses you can have in a single message.

  • Add Folder - is there a limit to the number of files you can add in one go?

    I have a fairly large collection (60GB+) of 192kbps mp3 files which are stored under My Music in a folder structure of Artists / Album, e.g. "My Music \ ACDC \ Back in Black\ Hells Bells.mp3"
    I recently bought an ipod and having installed itunes I wanted to add all my music. I figured out that the way to do this is to go File / Add Folder and select the "My Music" folder.
    However, itunes starts adding the mp3s and stops at the Bruce Springsteen folder. At this point the itunes library can see all the "A" folders and the "Bs" up to and including Bruce Springsteen. If I try the process again nothing happens.
    However, if I then try to add a specific folder e.g. "My Music \ Charlatans" it works.
    This suggests to me that the Add Folder option has a limit to the number of files it can process.
    Any thoughts on this would be appreciated as I'm not looking forward to manually adding a hundred or so folders.

  • Is there a limit to the number of plugins you can install in PS CC

    I have installed 5 which I can see but the last teo I installed are not visible!

    I don't think there is a limit in the number of installable plugins... (probably RAM limit only)
    I think there is a compatibility problem with the last one or a conflict among the installed plugins.
    Try to unistall all the plugins and reinstall only the last one
    Does It work?
    yes-> there's a conflict problem
    no -> there's a compatibilty (version) problem
    I hope this will help.

  • Is there a limit to the number of App pages like the iPhone?

    On the iPhone there is a limit to 11 pages of apps showing. (I know, I know... that's a lot). If you have more than that number of apps on the phone they won't display, you have to use searchlight to find them.
    Is that the same with the iPad? Does anyone know if there is a limit to the number of pages of apps?
    Thanks

    The same limit applies to the iPad. The upcoming 4.0 version of the OS will address this issue by allowing you to put apps in folders:
    http://www.apple.com/iphone/preview-iphone-os/
    BTW, it's "Spotlight", not "searchlight". Just in case you want to do a search on that subject.

    You need to look into your antivirus utility. Disable it temporarily and see if the speed picks up. If it does, then you know it's the antivirus utility that's causing the problem. Normally such a utility will only examine a file when the file is first added except when the utility does a full scan, but if yours is misset - perhaps it's doing full scans on a frequent basis - it might be being overzealous. Or it's just a bad utility; there are some such.
