    Hi.
    I'm thinking of moving over to Android. I might sound petty bit I've been using an iPad for almost two years and although I love it I just hate some things about it. I hate that I have to do stuff on my pc 'then' put it on my iPad such as arranging photos in albums etc. I hate adding videos to my iPad through iTunes when I want to just plug it into my PC and drag and drop them. There are just lots of annoyances like that for me.

    Anyway. I'm thinking of selling my iPad 2 and getting an Android tablet. I was wondering, if I'm leaving iOS then will I also be able to sell my Apple email/ID and App purchases too. Or at lease add them as a bundle so whoever buys my iPad will get more value?

    I have never heard of that, but I'm not sure why you can't do it. You can certain change payment method. But I'm not sure you can change the name on the account. If you can, then have at it.

    There are lots of apps that free you from iTunes. I hardly ever use it. I use both android and iOS and have three android tablets and two iOS tablets.

    Well I want to be able to move photos around in different folders and also delete any photo from any folder. I can't do that in iOS. I also want to just plug my iPad into my computer and drag a drop a movie file or song file and there it is in a folder ready to play and delete on the ipad.I have to do it by first loading iTunes then browsing to it etc. I end up just not doing it for all the hassle. I want to have folders in folders so I don't have hundreds of photo folders. I also want to have my photos arranged in the order that I decide (alphabetically) and not the way Apple decide is best.

    I'm drawn to the Galaxy note 10.1 but it seems a bit sluggish, has a lower res screen and no sd slot. I love the S pen though. I'm hoping the note 10.1 2 will be better.

    [Moderator edit: Removed reference to using apps not purchased by member. Even if a seller of an iPad gives you the password for an app on an iPad you purchase - it's still against Apple's EULA to have those apps. The seller has no legal right to do this and s/he is committing piracy]

    It's against the iTunes store terms and conditions to transfer ownership of your iTunes account. Not that this will stop people. Just pointing it out.

    That is good to know, as I wasn't aware of this. Thanks.

    Update after further digging, it's apps that are non transferable. Apparently there's no conditions that forbid music transfer. This was due to the introduction of iTunes plus in 2009 where all copy and device restrictions for music was removed.

    Apps are tied to an account and apps aren't transferable so the account isn't. Music isn't tied to an account.

    Yes. Apple doesn't let you do any transfers. See this (bolding is mine):

    There is another proviso (that I cannot find at this moment) that talks about being able to share apps among immediate family members. Still looking for that one...

    So, again, no, you may not legally transfer your Apple ID and applications to another.
