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!

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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!

  • Using Apps on Multiple Devices

    When you buy an app like iPhoto is it avalable on all you ISO devices or must you purchase a copy for each device?

    You originally asked if you download an app if it is available on all iOS devices.
    IMovie appears on my 4s and Mac but iPhoto appears to want to charge to download.
    The Mac is not an iOS device. The iPhoto on your Mac is designed to run on Mac OS X. You need to purchase the iOS version, and then it will be available for download on all of your iOS devices, which are iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.

  • 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.

  • 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.
    Note: The essence of the above was created by user, randers4. I
    have made substantial changes to improve readability and syntax.

  • Time Capsule only works for one device at a time, how to make it capable to be used for multiple devices at times

    Time Capsule only works for one device at a time, how to make it capable to be used for multiple devices at times.
    Please help to set it up, thanks in advance

    You need to give more info..
    Firstly only works for what.. networking.. backup.. wireless. You need more nouns.. more adjectives... describe what you want and what fails.. then we can figure out why.
    Most likely you have bridged it when it should be in router mode..
    Most likely you are using Lion or ML which has the airport utility bridge the TC by default.
    Change it to working as a router. That might help.
    If you press reset button it will default back to router btw.
    If you are on Lion.. use a real utility. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1547

  • Using iOS5 on multiple devices

    hi Forum
    Is there a view on how to use iOS5 on multiple devices when multiple devices are owned by differing family members? i have an iPhone, my partner has an iPhone, and together we have an iPad. [i have a MBP as well but havent updated to Lion yet, dont knwo if this is part of this question]. iOS5 can sync to multiple devices so can we sync all apps and musc between the mobile devices? do they have to be on the same apple user ID? of have i got that wrong?
    also contacts and photos wise, we both have our own photos, contacts, calendar and mail. can any/all of these be syncd between us all? i guess the one that would be syncd would be photos as youd want to see that on the ipad.
    Andi

    The iTunes account and iCloud accounts are not linked on your devices.
    So you can each have an iCloud account that works on your iDevices nd all be logged into the same iTunes account in the iTunes Store, App Store, IBooks, etc.
    You do really need your iMac to be on 10.7.2 as it was a requirement before you moved to iCloud, did you lie when asked the question "are all your devices ready for iCloud".

  • 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.

  • I have 2 iphones4! Do I have to create one apple id for each device or I can have both in one apple id? I'm asking cause I'm trying to run findmyiphone app for both devices!

    I have 2 iphones4! Do I have to create one apple id for each device or I can have both in one apple id? I'm asking cause I'm trying to run findmyiphone app for both devices!

    Here's what I do. My wife and  I each have an iPhone. We each have our own Apple ID. I also have another totally separate Apple ID. The ONLY thing that one has been used for was to set up Find my iPhone for our phones and my iPad. There is no reason the MobileMe setting for find my iphone can't be something completely different from your regular Apple ID UNLESS you already use MobileMe, in which case the 2 conflict in ways I don't understand as I don't subscribe to it.

    you can't.
    ... so that I can use it on multiple devices?
    a single iTunes can be authorized for up to five iTunes store accounts (Apple IDs). a library thusly set up will sync content purchased with any of the five Apple IDs to any device.

  • 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.
