    Dear forum:

    Just wondering do I have to buy again the apps that I have bought in my iphone? example: I bought Street Fighter IV on my iphone (same account) but when I searched for the game on my ipad (same account), it shows the price tag again, and I assume I have to purchase (pay) again?

    Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum! As long as you are buying the same version, you shouldn't have to pay again. You should get a message something like, "You already own this app, do you want to download it again?" I don't know about the particular one you are talking about, but some apps have an iPod/iPhone version and a separate iPad version which would have to be purchased.

    If you sync your iPad to the same library on the same computer as your iPhone, everything should transefer over.
