My husband bought an iPad 2.  I have a Mac.  ITunes is in my name but I have turned sharing on.  When we updated to OS5 we lost all the free apps that he downloaded in his user name.  Is there no way to update using my iTunes without losing his software.

Apps are only tied to one account... You can set up two iTunes accounts on your computer, however, and let his iPad sync to his account. If he has never backed up his apps to a computer, however, he will have to redownload all the apps. Afterwards, he can backup to iCloud instead of your computer.

    Open Photo Booth. Try taking video in this app. Are you having the same issues?
    You might try resetting your PRAM as well. Reboot the machine, holding down Option-Command-P-R as it restarts. Wait until you hear the chime a second time.

  • How do I remove a free app that I downloaded on my iPad?

    I would like to remove some of the free apps that I downloaded whe I first got my iPad.  They are no longer useful or relevant

    Press and hold any of the apps and after a couple of seconds or so they should start to shake. Then press the 'x' in the left corner to delete the ones that you don't want, and when you've finished deleting press the home button so as to stop the shaking (you can't delete any of the Apple built-in apps). If you don't get the 'x' on any of the apps that you've downloaded then check that Settings > General > Restrictions > Deleting Apps isn't set 'off'

  • HT1920 The e-mail address that I used to add songs to my ipod in iTunes no longer exists.  Most of the 2,600 songs were downloaded from CD's.  Is there a way to access the itunes account?

    The e-mail address that I used to add songs to my ipod in iTunes no longer exists.  Most of the 2,600 songs were downloaded from CD's.  Is there a way to access the itunes account?

    Only downloads from iTunes will be tied to that iTunes account, unless you subscribed to iTunes Match and uploaded the other songs from your computer to it. If you can't remember the account's password then you could try seeing if you can get reset via this page : http://iforgot.apple.com
    If that doesn't work then you could try contacting iTunes Support and see if they can help : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page
    When you've got access to the account you can update the primary email address on it to be one that you still have access to : http://appleid.apple.com
    If you don't have the music that wasn't downloaded from iTunes on a backup then there are some programs listed half-way down this page which should be able to copy them back from your iPod : https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991

  • Ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4 to Version 5 (iOS 5), all the new apps that I try to download keeps saying "waiting" on my phone... It won't open or download! Please help!!!

    Ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4 to Version 5, all the new apps that I try to download keeps saying "waiting" on my phone... It won't open or download! Only the old apps that I already had before I upgraded my phone works. Please help!!!

    Try resetting the iPhone.
    Hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home button down at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    It won't open or download!
    If that doesn't help tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

    Audiobooks go in Music, not ibooks.   Is the book you are talking about not an audiobook but an .epub or some other format where you read text?

  • I have Acrobat 9.5 and when I try to create pdf from scanner, it displays an error "Adobe acrobat has stopped working". Is there any way I can use this functionality?

    Provide you have Acrobat 9 installed in an OS for which Acrobat 9 is compatible then you can use the functionality.
    As well, you need a scanner connected, powered up, and the software installed. Acrobat 9 "prefers" TWAIN drivers.
    Always visit the scanner vendor's site and download - install the latest greatest software.
    n.b., The Acrobat 9.x product family passed into "End of Support" mid-year 2013.
    As well the Acrobat 9.x product family is not compatible with contemporary OSs.
    Be well...

  • I have LR5 student on my iMac but need it on my laptop, when I try to install it wont accept the serial number I was given last Feb.  Does this mean I can no longer use/install this product?

    I have LR5 student on my iMac but need it on my laptop, when I try to install it wont accept the serial number I was given last Feb.  Does this mean I can no longer use/install this product?

    No, you should be able to use/install LR5.  Make sure you are using the correct number.  If the problem continues explain the details of what you do and what happens.
    You should try contacting Adobe Support thru chat and see if they can resolve this with you.  or the link below click the Still Need Help? option in the blue area at the bottom and choose the chat option...

  • Do I really need to keep all the preloaded apps that came with my MacbookPro 13'' mid 2010

    Do I really need to keep all the preloaded apps that came with my MacbookPro 13'' mid 2010? Which one are necessary to keep from your experience. Thanks

    Lots of apps are preloaded on a new MBP. Tell us which ones you don't think you need, and we'll tell you whether you can safely get rid of them.
    However,  the total space used on your hard drive by all the apps that are preinstalled is very small, and if there's any chance at all that you may eventually want to use them, you might as well keep them handy.
    By way of example, my own Applications folder contains everything that came from the factory preinstalled in it, plus 2.5 years of subsequent additions totalling 196 applications of all kinds and sizes. Still, it only occupies 12.5GB of my 500GB hard drive.

  • I am very sure I have " find my iPod" on my iPod device but , it's not coming up when I try to look for it in the radar?! Unfortunately my iPod was stolen at school. Any help

    No app on the iPod is required.                           
    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod in Settings>iCloud and wifi is on and connected, on a computer browser go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up or conbtinue to show off-line.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    iCloud: Erase your device
    iCloud: Use Lost Mode
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it unless you had iOS 7 on the device. With iOS 7, one has to enter the Apple ID and password to restore the device.

  • I backed up my new iPod touch with data from my old one. This seems to have erased all the new apps that came with the new iPod. What do I do now?

    I got a new iPod Touch today. I wanted to transfer all my apps and data over to the new iPod from my old one, so I restored it from my old one. Unfortunately, it seems to have erased the new apps that come with the latest iPod. What do I do to get the back?

    Maybe I'm confusing apps with function. I was looking at the features on Apple's site, and it showed Voice Control, Air Print, Air Play, that sort of thing.

  • Do I need to uninstall all the CC apps that now have a 2014 duplicate?

    I'm a little annoyed that the latest CC 2014 updates didn't "replace" the previous CC apps. I have a lot of plug-ins and presets that now have to be manually transported to their respective CC 2014 equivalents. Then I have to go back through and uninstall all the non-2014 CC duplicate apps....? It seems the update workflow/expectations could have used a little more articulation/clarity. Or, did I just miss it somewhere?

    -This messages says (at least some) CC 2014 programs use NEW plugins https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1499663
    -so do not uninstall the older CC programs if you use plugins in your programs until you are sure you have plugins that work in CC2014
