Managing installed apps for multiple devices

Is there a way to create an "app playlist" in order to easily create a common set of installed apps across multiple devices?  I'm tired of having to install the same app on each of my kids devices.  Also, I don't want to enable auto install new apps because I don't necessarily want my kids to get apps that I'm installing on my devices.
Thanks

The un-compatible updates will not install on the iPod.
Make sure that you retain a copy of the version that is compatible with iOS 4.2.1 since you can only redownload the latest version version from the App store.
I would backuyp the library to an external HD by:
iTunes: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive
Note that when you update an app on the iPod and then sync, the update apps is also synced to the iTunes library.

  • Apps for multiple devices

    I have a 2nd gen iPod Touch - so still iOS 4.2.1.  App updates all appear to only be compatible for iOS 4.3 & newer.  I'm fine with that on the iPod - but I also have an iPad 2 Model A1395 - would like to update the apps for that. If I download the updates, will they crash on the iPod?  Or just not load on it, but on the iPad. My iTunes is 11.0.2 & my computer is 10.6.8 (been procrastinating updating that, too because of the old iPod).  Debating using separate user accounts on the computer for each device - daughter seems able to update her 1 yr. old iPod on her own user account without messing up any of the other devices.  Would LOVE some input!  Thanks!

  • Saving separate sets of apps for multiple devices

    Hi,
    This has probably been asked before, sorry if redundant.
    I have an iPhone and an iPad, my wife has an iPhone. We prefer different apps on pur phones and a different set for the iPad. iTunes recognizes the devices with different names when they are attached, but the app set from the last device attached is still checked.
    It's a real pain to have to go through, checking and unchecking each time, just to Sync one or two new items.
    Is there a way to "save" your app set for each item so that when you connect a device, it recognizes it AND the last app set you choose for that device?
    Probably a real easy solution but darned if I can figure it out.
    Thanks
    Joe

    Just tried this with my wifes phone, the last one that was Synced .
    Right click? I am using an Apple mouse, not a two button one.
    I have been told that you can right or left click with an Apple mouse, didn't work here. No pop up menu like with a two button mouse or when using a Windows computer.
    The only Backup option I can see is the choice to Back Up To iCloud or Back Up to This Computer. Is that what you are referring to?
    It's currently backed up to iCloud. Does she need to change that to save her selected set of apps?

  • What's the best way to manage Apple IDs for multiple devices?

    Hi,
    We have
    a shared Macbook air
    a shared iPad
    my iPhone
    his iPhone
    We want to put one ID on the Macbook and iPad that we can use to have the same iMessage on both and that we can put a card on and use in the iTunes store etc.
    We also want to have our own iMessages on our iPhones, plus be able to use the account with the cards on them to purchase and share across devices...
    What's the best way to manage them all?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    iTunes is straight forward, just use the same ID on all of them.
    What exactly do you want to see in messages on the Mac and iPad, messages combined from each of your phones or a different account just for both of you.
    You should think about what you want in calendars, contacts etc, on your shared devices.

  • HT4847 is there a unified way to manage iCloud storage for multiple devices

    i have multiple idevices and the same account being used across multiple of these devices. I want to manage my storage from a central place. is this possible.

    delete content in iCloud from devices with out physically accessing the devices. I want to get a global view of which device is using what aspect of cloud and if possible, clean up the photo stream on the cloud itself and push it to all devices.

  • Using apps for multiple devices

    Hi,
    I'm not sure if I should ask this here but this is my basic problem. I have an iPod touch and I want to sell it and get an iPhone. I have bought a lot of apps from iTunes and I would like to be able to use them on the iPhone once I get it. Can I do that? Do I have to restore the iPod to factory settings first so that I delete all the apps from it first?
    If anyone knows, I would appreciate the help. Thanks,
    Dragos

    Not sure if I'm reading your question right, but I think it's two questions:
    1) how can you keep what you have? answer: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1848
    2) how do you wipe out the info from the device you want to sell. factory settings, but not til AFTER step 1.
    Hope this helps!

  • I have one apple ID for multiple devices in my family.  I'd like to keep it that way for itunes/app purchases.  I would like a simple step 1, step 2, step 3 response on what I need to do to separate all other features like imessage, contacts, emails, etc.

    I have one apple ID for multiple devices in my family.  I'd like to keep it that way for itunes/app purchases.  I would like a simple step 1, step 2, step 3 response on what I need to do to separate all other features like imessage, contacts, emails, etc.
    I have been reasearching how to do this on the internet, but I haven't found an easy explanation yet.  My family is going crazy over each others imessages being sent to others in the family and not being able to use FaceTime because of conflicting email addresses.  I have read that if each person gets their own iCloud account, this would work.  However, I need to know what to do after I set everyone up with their own iCloud account.  Do I make that the default email address to be contacted or can they still use their hotmail email addresses.  Any help- with easy explanation- would be much appreciated!!

    We do this in my family now.  We have one account for purchases, so it is used to share music and apps (I think that is in Settings/iTunes & App Stores).  Each iDevice has this configured.
    Then, each of us has our own iCloud account that is configured under Settings/iCloud.  That then allows us to have our own Mail/Contacts/Calendars/Reminders/Safari Bookmarks/Notes/Passbook/Photo Stream/Documents & Data/Find My iPhone/and Backup.  That Backup piece is pretty sweet and comes in handly if you replace your iDevice.  You can just restore from it.
    So we all share the Apple Store account but we all have our own iCloud accounts to keep the rest seperate or things like you mentioned are a nightmare.
    In answer to what iCloud does for you: http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/
    Think of it as an internet based ("cloud") area for all of those items listed in my response.  What you need to remember is photo stream only maintans the last 1000 pictures so don't count it as a complete backup solution for your pictures.  Even though I rarely sync with a computer these days, I do still try to sync my phone with iPhoto (I have an iMac) so that I have copies of all of my pictures.  1000 may not stretch as far as it sounds.

  • Same apple id for multiple devices

    I have been use the same apple id for multiple devices (both are iPhones running iOS 6 - one is a 4, the other a 4S.) I'd like to sync separate content for each device using the same instance of iTunes (iTunes V 10.7 installed on MacBook running OS X 10.6.8.) Can I assign the second device a separate apple id in odrer to differentiate the content? Thanks for your assistance!

    No, a second Apple ID will not work. iTunes can already tell them apart.
    When you connect the first iPhone to iTunes, check and uncheck the things you want and Sync.
    Do the same with the second iPhone.

  • Can I use the same Apple ID for multiple devices

    Can I use the same Apple ID for multiple devices?

    Yes. Up to five devices can be authorized on a single computer using the same Apple ID. You can also use the same Apple ID on multiple devices is they are all going to use the same iTunes Library by the same user. But it's ill-advised if multiple users are involved who wish to keep their devices separate from the devices belonging to other users.
    How to use multiple iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices with one computer
    Using More than One iDevice on the Same Computer
    This applies mainly to couples who are adding another device and do not want their email, messages, etc. being duplicated on both devices. To begin read: How to use multiple iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices with one computer. You need to establish a separate Apple ID and password for whomever will use the new iDevice. See Apple - My Apple ID and Frequently asked questions about Apple ID. The easiest way is to do this on the computer using iTunes: iTunes- How to set up an Apple ID within iTunes.
    On the computer create a new user account for the person with the new iDevice. This will be the user account that person will always use. He/She will no longer use the other user account. This way that person will have a separate iTunes Library
    Start by transferring the new device(s) to a new account along with all your data.  Save any photo stream photos that you want to keep to your camera roll (unless they are already in the camera roll) by opening your Photos app, tap on Albums icon at the bottom. Now, tap on My Photo Stream album; tap Select; tap on the photos you want to select;, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow) in the lower left corner; then tap Save to Camera Roll.
    If you are syncing notes with iCloud that you want to keep then you need to open each of your notes and email them to yourself. Later you can copy and paste the text into new notes created in your new account.
    Tap on Settings > iCloud > Delete Account (only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; the person keeping the current account will not be affected,) provide the password to turn off Find My Phone and choose Keep on My iDevice when prompted.  Sign in with a different Apple ID to create your new account. Choose Merge to upload your data.
    Once you are on separate accounts, you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account.

  • Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center,(VMWare) for 2 devices

    Has anyone had luck register the PAK for Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center,(VMWare) for 2 devices (FS-VMW-2-SW-K9)?  The process apparently involves logging into 'Defense Center' (part of the product I'm trying to download and install) to grab a license key.  Chicken and Egg situation to be sure.
    TAC hasn't been any help to date, saying that I need to provide them with a license key.  Anyone?
    Thank you

    So here's the answer.  With the purchase of FS-VMW-2-SW-K9 you also have to buy a SmartNet contract.  Once you successfully have that info, you associate the contract to your profile and are then entitled to download the virtual appliance software.  Once you have deployed the OVF file, you then get access to the 'licence key' or in this case MAC address that allows you to go ahead and fulfill the PAK to get the relevant licenses.  Lots of hoops but I did it.

  • Do i need  to buy an app for each device or one purchase.

    Do I need to buy pages app for every device or will one purchase do all my devices.

    One purchase for Macs and another for iOS devices. Note that if you're using a computer with Mac OS X 10.5.2, you'll need to either upgrade its OS or install the DVD version of iWork, which is separate from the Mac App Store version.

  • Can I use Apple Configurator 1.6 to install Apps from multiple iTunes accounts on 30 iPads

    Can I use Apple Configurator 1.6 to install Apps from multiple iTunes accounts on 30 iPads in South Korea?

    Thank you again.  I am actually just using a single computer at thsi time but will be setting up a Mac Mini in a day or so.
    I actually believe I authorized my Mac Book for both my wife and my iTunes account.  Yesterday when I hooked her iPhone up it told me that my computer was not authorized to download an app, i had to authorize this macbook. 
    So if the Apps from both iTunes account  is on my Mac Book and I hook up my iPhone it will allow my to transfer the apps from my computer to my iphone?  So lets say I am logged into iTunes account #1 and I try to use an app from iTunes account #2 will I have to do anything special?
    Again thanks

  • I have purchased CS6, can I install it on multiple devices? Purchased as home user

    I have purchased CS6, can I install it on multiple devices? Purchased as home user

    You can install and use the software on one secondary computer. So you can use it both at work and at home. See the following excerpt from the EULA.
    Can I use my software on two computers?
    If you own, or are the primary user of, a single-user or volume license Adobe product that is installed on a computer at work, you can also install and use the software on one secondary computer of the same platform at home or on a portable computer. However, you may not run the software simultaneously on both the primary and secondary computers.
    No more than one user can use a single-user license Adobe product.

  • How do I manage apple id on multiple devices

    How do I manage Apple ID on multiple devices.  I changed on my iMac but can't change on my iPhone or iPad.

    in addition, if you want to change the iCloud (which you probably do), do
    settings->iCloud->Delete Account
    Then log in with yours.  Be sure to note the settings first, because it will forget them.
