    I just bought two new Ipad IIs and when I down load anapp it shows up on both. This is my problem I have an older Ipad II I bought 8months ago when they first came out and it does not get the app from the newones nor does the new ones get from it. What do I have to turn on in the oldIpad II to make it a three sum?

    On iPad:

    Settings > Store > Automatic downloads > toggle on Apps (to auto-load onto your other devices).

    This is for auto-loading apps going forward.

    Since you apparently didn't have that on for all your devices, if you want to retroactively load apps that are missing from some of your devices, you can:

    Open App Store app on iPad, click on Purchased and download whatever you want from previous purchases.

    This all works as long as you're using the same Apple ID on all your devices.
