    Hi all.

    A new kid here in every sense of the word as far as anything related to iPad is concerned so I hope I am doing this correctly :eek:
    I have been reading every thing that I can lay my hands on relating to my questions but while some do go partway in answering, most answers seem to skirt around the subject, so here goes.

    If I buy an App through iTunes, can I download it and save it on my Windows PC, *(OS Windows 7 Ultimate) and install from there?

    Can I install it from there multiple times if need be?

    Can I share this App with my son's iPad should he want a copy? Sadly at the present point of time all he does is surf the net and play free games.

    Regards

    You need to have iTunes installed on your pc and then yes you can have a copy of all your apps on the pc. You can share these apps with your kids or any of your apple devices provided the pc iTunes and all you apple devices all share the same account. When you hook any of your devices to the pc you can then chose what apps you want to sync to that device. On iTunes you can download purchases that you have made on any of your apple devices as well.

    Also, yes you can download apps directly from iTunes onto your pc then transfer them to your iDevices. The only reason I see doing this is if you wanted an app for your son that you did not want on you iPad. Even though you can just delete unwanted apps from yours.

    Hi all

    Thank for the info. One more question relating to this subject.

    Can a guest hook up to my PC and also share that PC stored App?

    Regards

    No,the apps can only be shared among devices which share the same Apple user ID.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread, but what steps do you use to get them on to your Ipad. I have many save to my itunes on the computer, but can't figure out how to get them on the ipad.

    Only if they share your AppleID. One iPad cannot use multiple IDs. Your apps are for use on your equipment and cannot be shared.

    Go to the apps page for your iPad in iTunes and select those you want on your iPad. Then sync.
