    Unfortunately, when you bought your friend's iPad, you did not buy her apps. They do not/can not transfer with the iPad. It's a legality thing - apps belong to the original purchaser.

    What you've got to do is restore the iPad to like-new fresh-out-of-the-box and start from the beginning. You do this by plugging it into iTunes and clicking on restore.

    Hope that helps.
