Help with special situation
I am the parent of a special needs child (profound delays). She was the recipient of an iPad recently. The tricky issue, is this iPad gift is one that had already belonged to someone, and already has many apps pertinent to the special needs community (for which we are very grateful). Anyhow, because it already has all these wonderful apps loaded, we do not dare connect to our computer, because if we do, and our computer syncs, we would lose all these apps (since they are not on our account).
What I would like to do, is find a way to keep the apps that are on there, but be able to add to them, with apps that I purchase/download myself.
Yes, the time will come when I purchase my own copy of the other apps that are on there that are working well for my daughter. We are still trying to determine which ones she can use, based on her skill level and interest. Especially true for Augmentative Communication Apps, and other early learning apps (which anyone who may have used ACC apps, knows they can get a bit pricey).
Another tricky issue, is one of the apps, already on the ipad - one of the very ones I have considered for her, does not function properly. You open it, and it force closes immediately. (This is Tap Speak Choice, BTW). I've emailed the developers, and they have said if I had the original iTunes login, I could download a new copy easily. But alas, with our situation, this iPad is a gift, and is now my Daughters. I can not readily ask the original owner for their account information (not to mention that sounds really greedy, considering the donation given to our family).
Can anyone please help!
Like I've said, I simply would like to be able to
Be able to add to our current apps, without wiping the existing apps (which number around 200)
Fix the one app that isn't working (even if we need to re-purchase this one)
I have an itunes account of my own, but do not have my own ipad (only a 3rd gen ipod).
(BTW - I also have chronic issues with my own itunes account tossing my library for my ipod).
