Why can't i access my Apps that I downloaded through iTunes. I believe I'm doing something wrong and not that the issue is iTunes itself

Occasionally ill try downloading an App through my Macbook Pro 13.5 & it directs me to iTunes to be downloaded. So, I go to iTunes and download the App I need. For instance, Amazon. I go into 'My Apps' in iTunes and try clicking on one of my DL Apps, but nothing happens. Why can't I access the Apps, which I downloaded through iTunes.?I believe I'm doing something wrong and not that the issue is iTunes itself.  I have OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. I am due for an upgrade from that software and also an upgrade for iTunes as well, but that shouldn't be the problem. I've tried everything on my end to troubleshoot. I don't really have the time during the day to call in and troubleshoot, so thats why I'm asking the community. Please help with this problem if anyone can. Thank You!

Once you download an iOS app, you cannot run that app from the computer. That can only be run from an iOS device. You cannot download Mac Apps from the iTunes App Store, those are downloaded from the Mac App Store. Two different places. If you want a Mac app that will run on your Mac, you need to download that from the Mac App Store. iTunes App Store only has iOS apps that work on iOS devices, iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

  • Why can't i access my app store on my iPod?

    Why can't i access my app store on my ipod 4th generation? I click on it and it won't let me access my app, itunes, or any app like social media apps with internet, but I can still access my games that have internet. It confuses me and i dont know what to? I found it didnt work because i wanted to get a game one day that i saw people playing thought it was cool, and wanted to get it. It didnt work and said cannot connect to iTunes store. So i thought i was because i was at school and my school has a filter and it has been blocking alot since its really close to the end of the year, but when i went home and tried to get into it. It still didnt work. So if anyone knows how to help can you please help. Thank you .

    Try this:
    Quit all apps: Double tap the Home button, hold an app icon until it wiggles, tap for each open app, double tap the Home button again
    Reset: Hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons and don’t let go until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo appears (no data will be lost)

  • GPS Navigation App that doesn't suck?? Or am I doing something wrong?

    I started off with a droid 2 before I got my iphone 4.  The droid 2 gps was phenomenal, I had no problems with it.  Then I got an iphone which I assumed was going to be just as good if not better than the droid's gps.  Boy was I wrong!  The "Maps" app that came with the iphone did not re-route itself EVER when I was in a big city and I ened up getting lost.
    So one of my friends downloaded the "Waze" app, which is ok.  I mean it does work it's still not the greatest.  My issue with that one is that it doesn't say "take next right exit 172B" it just says, "turn right here."
    Now it's very possible that *I* am the one doing something wrong, I tried going through the settings but I still couldn't figure it out.  Can someone please help me? 

    The store category "Navigation" has a ton more than 10 apps in it, but they are geared toward a great many different things - from geocaching, to hiking, sailing, driving, orienteering, finding your parked car,....
    If you want to search, you need to search for something more specific, like "road navigation" or "street navigation"
    I know in there you should find Garmin, TomTom, MotionXGPS Drive, Verizons nav app (requires a subscrition added to your plan), AT&T Navigation app (also, needs service added to plan), and several others.
    Most of the top sellers and best rated will be right there on the first screen if you go to categories - Navigation

  • Why does it seem like Apple uses support communities to find work-arounds, and not fix the issues found here?

    The problem with iTunes clipping last 15-20 seconds of song playback to jump to next song has been a problem listed since 2009, and the only solutions are from community users. No official replies at all from Apple. Why is that? I'm currently having this problem with my iPad2 and latest IOS, with no idea what is causing the problem. They haven't even looked to a fix it seems

    Due to phenomenal development in Windows, Microsoft released 4 generations of operating systems, succeeding Windows XP. Hence, on various aspects, Windows XP becomes too old to be used practically these days. So the support was pulled out.
    I do agree that Windows XP is the most successful operating system ever, so far. But, later versions added more features, enhanced security and compatibility. Moreover, at this point, Windows XP becomes more vulnerable, although security patches are made.
    Ultimately, we need to move to a more secure, feature-rich and highly compatible operating system.
    With improved features in newer versions of Windows, the NTFS filesystem has also been improved, adding new features. Hence, certain feaures that are not availble in Windows XP are available in Windows 7, again, in Windows 8.1. So is the disk management
    As for Acronis Disk Director, it's a third party software and hence we can't comment on the features/its working.

    Hi Monsieur_G,
    The new Creative Cloud Desktop App looks like a nice and integrated replacement for both the Adobe Application Manager and the Creative Cloud Connection. If you are an existing user of Creative Cloud and are already using the legacy Creative Cloud Connection then you might want to update it using the Adobe Application Manager. To do this, Open the Adobe Application Manager and look for new updates, it should find the new Creative Cloud Desktop App and download it, and install it for you. The older AAM will automatically update itself without any need to uninstall it manually.

    I posted this for anyone else that is having the same problem. This may be the trick after deleting the opm.db file. I found the install box the same as the manager pict. and click on that when it had uploaded i just closed it and it worked. fingers crossed. Thank you again.

  • I must be doing something wrong because none of the Adobe software can open my RAW files.

    None of the adobe software recognize the RAW files from my Nikon D7100. I had no problems opening raw files from my D5000.   I even tried to convert them to DNG but that didn't work either. I have used Lightroom, Photoshop CC, Bridge, Photoshop Elements 13, Photoshop 8.  I wasn't able to see my Raw files in windows either until I downloaded NEC codec...and, of course, I can see them in the Nikon software.  I have 8 folders of pics taken with the new camera.  In the last folder, I can see and work with my RAW files and in one folder, there is one RAW file I can work with.  All the rest are blank and won't open.  In one folder, Lightroom won't even show the JPEGs. I shoot in RAW + (JPEG) FINE. I've downloaded all the files the same way.  I will try to download them again, but not all of them are still on the card.  I even tried to convert them to DNG, but if they can't be seen as RAW, they won't convert to DNG. The D7100 has been out for a while, so I can't believe that Adobe wouldn't work for it.

    The IMG_6564.CR2 file on dropbox is corrupted in that it is missing most of the raw data which is why PS and LR cannot open it.  For this specific file, at least, the camera-embedded-jpg preview is intact and can be extracted, so while not as good as the raw file, it is better than nothing.
    Here is what IrfanView shows for the raw image:
    Here is the camera-embedded jpg-preview as show in Windows Photo Viewer:
    I was able to extract the camera-embedded jpg preview using EXIF Tool, with the following command:
    exiftool -b -PreviewImage -w _preview.jpg -ext cr2 -r ./.
    where ./.means the current folder in the CMD window.  If the images were in a different folder, for example C:\Pictures, then the last part of the command would be -r C\Pictures
    This created a IMG_6564_preview.jpg from the original IMG_6564.CR2 file.
    The next step is to copy all the metadata over from the CR2 to its corresponding preview.jpg file:
    exiftool -tagsfromfile %d%-.8f.cr2 -all:all -r -overwrite_original -ext jpg ./.
    You can read about these two commands, here:http://ninedegreesbelow.com/photography/exiftool-commands.html#extract
    ExifTool can be downloaded from the Windows Executable box near the top of the page at the following website, and once you download the extiftool-whatever.zip then extract exfitool(-k).exe then rename exiftool(-k).exe to exiftool.exe and copy it to the folder where your CR2 files reside then run the two commands, above to extract all the embedded previews:
    ExifTool by Phil Harvey
    Finally, it would be wise to determine why the files are corrupted.  Usually it is the memory card, itself, that is going bad.  Are all the images bad or just one here and there?

  • For some strange reason, the BBC icon got on a lot of my bookmarks so that when I try to open them, they take me to BBC and not to the actual bookmark. Help!

    Several of the bookmarks for some reason had their icons changed to BBC. I didn't do it. Therefore when I try to use them, I get taken to the BBC website. What can I do to correct this?

    A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.
    You can also try to repair the places database with this extension:

  • HELP! Downloaded LR5 and when open it shows an error message saying error while trying to change from modules and I can not even import photos. Am I doing something wrong?

    HELP! Downloaded LR5 and when open it shows an error message saying error while trying to change from modules and I can not even import photos. Am I doing something wrong?

    I have the same problem, and the solutions in   Error changing modules | Lightroom do not work.  Even uninstalling and reinstalling a new copy did not solve the problem.  As anyone got an idea what other lingering files might be causing the problem?

  • Why can't I access the updated that are pending on my phone?

    Why can't I access the updated that are pending on my phone? I've turned the phone off and also closed all the apps. But still won't allow me to access the updates. Just a blank screen.

    Another post is reporting that applying the 6.1 update fixes their issue. I'll have to wait until I am back on WiFi to try that.

  • HT4623 Why can't I install any apps keeps saying that my session has timed out

    Why can't I install any apps it keeps saying my session has timed out

    Thanks for your suggestion Ned01, I tried this as a last ditch attempt, unfortunatly it made no difference in my case, but i'm pleased it did for you. However, because you reminded me to have another go at this problem, i tried something else (which i'd unsucsessfuly tried before), that is, i deleted the 'CLICK & SAVE " a/c i'd set up recently,  and reverted to my previous payment me and would you know it , this time it worked !! I set up a trail purchase and it worked.
    It seems to me that other poeple with this problem have to solve it by trail and error, but thank you for your help.Sandystone..
