    If I buy a used ipod touch from someone, will itunes let me load my purchased apps onto it? Do I re-register it or something? If so, what do I have to do?
    Thanks so much!

    Not sure what this means:(
    I re register it in my name? Online? When I sync with iTunes? Sorry for the dumb questions:)

    I assume the process is the same as that for an iPad...

    Connect the new to you iPod to iTunes and select restore. This will reset the iPod to like new. Then, you can restore from new (cause it is, to you). Once that's done, you can transfer over any iPod apps you have.

    Hope that helps.

    Only a few of your iPad apps will work with the iPod touch. Those that were actually iPod or iPhone apps, and those that were Universal. Do not expect all your apps to work on the iPod.

    But those that are compatible will transfer to the iPod Touch easily enough. All you need to do is register it with the same Apple ID as your iPad, after you've done the Restore that Marilyn described.
