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.

  • 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!

    Apps purchased from the Mac App Store will only run on the Mac OS X.

    Apps installed on iOS devices will not run on the Mac OS X and vice versa.

  • 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.

    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".

  • 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.

    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.

  • In-App purchase multiple devices...is there a limit?

    I'm looking to purchase in-app purchases, and I know that Non-replenishable apps can be transferred to multiple devices authorised with the same iTunes Store account. I was just wondering if there is a limit to how many devices these can be transfered to, as we have around 70 devices needing the in-app purchase?

    Hello eagjdw
    You can keep the one Apple ID for purchases and then create another one for a personal account for contacts and calendars. The article below will assist further

  • Using acrobat on multiple devices?

    I pay the monthy fee acrobat and want to use this software on my desktop and iphone, not just my laptop. Ive tried downloading on my desktop and have been unsuccessful. Can you use on multiple devices when paying for this service?

    Hi Sam Sweat,
    Since you're talking about downloading software, I'm assuming that you're referring to an Acrobat subscription. The license agreement lets you install that on up to two different computers. What happens when you try to download the installer on your desktop computer? Do you get an error message?
    I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Best,

  • Apps on multiple devices?

    Considering getting an iPhone.
    Can I sync to my iMac and DL the apps I purchased for my iPod Touch? Or do I have to purchase all new apps for the phone?
    TIA

    Hello Randy,
    You can use the apps on both devices as long as they are both authorized under the same iTunes account that was used to purchase and/or download the apps.

  • (Not) synchronizing apps across multiple devices; how to?

    Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I would like to sync an iPhone and iPod touch with iTunes but do not want the same apps and content on both devices. I know I can set what to sync individually when it comes to movies, music and photos.
    When I transferred my apps from iPod to iPhone (the iPod prior to this did not sync apps), all I did was press sync, then connected the iPhone and pressed sync and all (well, almost. 12 went missing, including two paid ones) went over. So it seems that whatever apps synchronized to iTunes will sync across all devices connected to it.
    Which is good when I want to transfer but I don't want it now. I try to stop app sync between iPod and iTunes and it tells me "all existing applications and data will be erased". How do I manage apps on each device individually?
    Cheerio,
    Nicholas.

    Sign into iCloud with the same Apple ID on all your devices:

  • Apps across multiple devices

    My wife and I are having trouble with her iphone and ipad.  They were given to her by her employer and their tech support is minimal.  When she downloads an app to one device, it may or may not appear on the other device.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.  We even went as far as resetting them and activating them both with a brand new apple id so that we could start fresh and smoothly govern the apps.  The same problem exists.  Any suggestions?

    Wow!  Way, way behind.  Jailbroken?
    With 4.2, there is no purchase history displayed.  You (probably) can safely download it and won't be charged.

  • Apps on multiple devices/moving apps

    Anyone know if we will be able to put bought apps on more than one device? I plan to get an iPhone and it would be nice to have the same software on that.
    Alternatively is there some way of removing an app from one device and putting it on another instead? You can do this if you upgrade to a new computer for example. For example if I sell my iPod Touch, can I move its apps to my new Touch/Phone etc?

    My wife and I both have iPhones and we have a Touch...if only we could have rented a Touch for a couple weeks, its what convinced my wife to buy an iPhone Anyway, the Apps we buy work on all three devices because her computer is one of the computers authorized under my iTunes account.

  • Using the new Photos app on multiple devices - confusion!

    I find the recent way ios/Photos handles photos quite confusing. I am not too concerned about not having a Camera Roll, but seeing how not having this creates strange behavior when editing/deleting photos, I can see how the Camera Roll is definitely necessary or the whole thing needs revamped to handle things better.
    Here's my set up:
    iMac with iPhoto
    iPhone 5s with the new Photos app
    iPad Mini with the new Photos app
    The one things I DO like is that whenever I take a photo (or upload in the case of my iMac), the photo is duplicated across all devices. That means I could take a photo on my iPhone and then edit it on my iPad Mini which has a bigger screen. (Well, so I thought..but read below.) Yes, you could do this with Photo Stream, but having all photos in one place is a bit easier to remember and find. I also like that when I delete the photo on the device that I took it on, all photos on the other two devices are also deleted. Easy. Thanks.
    But that is where the ease of use ends.
    If I delete the photo on any other two devices (i.e. the devices that I did NOT take the photo on), it only deletes on the devices which I didn't take the photo on. In other words, it leaves the photo on the device which I originally took the photo on.
    To add to the confusion... if I edit the original photo, the edits do not get duplicated to the other devices! I see the original photo on the devices with which I did NOT take the photo but the edited one is on the original device I took it on.
    Let's add even MORE confusion....if I want to edit the photo on a device it was not taken on, I then get a notice that it has to be Duplicated before I can edit it. Well, okay, I do that and then edit it. However, I now have the original showing up twice on the device it was originally taken on...the original photo and the now duplicated photo--it's the EXACT same photo since no edits get carried over from the other device.
    I believe all of this is because of what happened when ios 9 combined the functions of the Camera Roll and Photo Stream together. It exhibits both behaviors but since you cannot be sure which photo was taken on which device, you have less understanding what will happen when you try to delete a photo or edit it.
    Here's the key headache....What happens if I want to make sure a photo is deleted from ALL my devices and I don't remember which device I took the photo on? I will have to check every device just to be sure! I can't even open up iPhoto on my Mac and delete it from the Photo Stream album because it will remain on the original device. So, I have to check all devices and also iPhoto on my Mac for good measure in case I actually uploaded a photo there--which I do since I am scanning in old photos.
    Key headache #2...you end up with duplicates of the photo if you edit the photo on any device on which it was not taken on. You also get different versions of the photo. You end up not knowing which photo was the original. To be sure to have all edited photos eventually on you iMac, you'll need to sync all devices physically to iPhoto.
    Who has time to track all this?
    What should happen is this...all of the photos, including their edits, should sync exactly on all devices. My Recently Added should look exactly the same across all devices and carry over any edits...now that is what I would call Continuity and Handoff! But as it stands, we don't have anything close to this...is more like Pandemonium and MixUp!
    This is really a mess and way too confusing to keep track of. I can only hope this get resolved when Photos on the Mac is released.

    Go to the App Store and check out the Purchases List. If iPhoto is there then it will be v9.6.1
    If it is there, then drag your existing iPhoto app (not the library, just the app) to the trash
    Install the App from the App Store.
    Sometimes iPhoto is not visible on the Purchases List. it may be hidden. See this article for details on how to unhide it.

    One question often asked: Will I lose my Photos if I reinstall?
    iPhoto the application and the iPhoto Library are two different parts of the iPhoto programme. So, reinstalling the app should not affect the Library. BUT you should always have a back up before doing this kind of work. Always.
