    I've moved this to the Help section, where I think it will receive better attention.

    Hi Tracey. I checked and there is no app called "music download + player" in the iTunes App Store. Can you please have a look at the app and tell up exactly what the name is? Otherwise there are too many Apps with similar names to figure out how to help. Thank you.

    EDIT: Please avoid posting the same question in multiple areas on the forum, it only confuses things and is against the forum rules. Your duplicate posts have been removed. With over 100,000 members of our forum I'm confident that you'll get the answers you're looking for with a little patience. Thanks again.

    Ah, got it then...this one...

    App Store - Music Downloader+ Player

    I haven't used it but it appears to be a stand-alone music downloader and player (hence the name I suppose). This means that the music that you download using this app cannot be "moved"...to your iPod app or anywhere else...at least that I can see.

    I can understand why for a couple of reasons...one it would be direct competition for buying music in the iTunes Store. Second, by allowing files to be moved around it would impact the security of other apps as there's no way for Apple to know if these files are harmful or not. Apple keeps apps isolated or "sandboxed" as they call it to prevent problems.

    So it appears that you'll have to be content with using this app to play any music you download with it.

    That's probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but hope it helps!

    Their support page is bogus to boot.

    The only iPod song trasfering I can find mention of is the ability to take songs dowloaded in the app and move them to the iPod app. They tell you to use File sharing, which means that while their claim isn't exactly a lie, it's not really a direct trasfer feature either. Here is a link on how File Sharing works.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4094

    Basically what you would have to do is use the File Sharing feature in iTunes to copy them to you computer. Once ther you can import the files back into the iTunes library, the same way you would import any music track (using Add to Library under the Files menu). At that point it would be available to sync back to your iPad and show up in the iPod app. Or you could sync it to any other iDevice you own.

    Ah, I hadn't gotten that far or I missed it.

    Seems like are real PIA way to do things though.

    I didn't find any support page! The reviews are pretty mixed...love it or hate it. Probably an app to be avoided IMHO...even the free version.

    Thanks for the additional info though.

    That's what I meant by bogus. All I got was a notice that the domain may be for sale. To be fair the app only came out the 16th of Sep. To be critical, the Dev should have had at least a place holder page up when the app was submitted.

    I'd be leary of buying the app too, at least until it has an update or two and enough reviews that I can be fairly sure it's more than friends and family five staring it.
