    dont know if this will work or not but here is what i want to do:
    i have the 64wifi3g that has around 100 dollars worth of apps on it.
    my wife now wants to get an ipad
    instead of paying for these apps all over again (GPS, Docs to go,pdf editors,etc., etc.)
    how do i get it to where she can load my apps on her ipad but still sync to her itunes library??
    i have a mac computer for my syncing duties and she uses a HP computer for hers.
    i know that i can log into my itunes account from her ipad and redownload all the apps we want to share and then the next time she syncs it will ask her for the password to my itunes to authorize her computer to sync those apps right??

    thanks for all your help!!!!!

    On her pc, log her out and you in, authorize your account. Download the prepurchased apps she wants. Log out and log her back in, plug in her iPad and sync apps.. :)
    I share apps with my son this way.

    Kind of an old thread. But I think it is still good info.

    Will the same method work but rather then down load apps again could they be brought over with "Home Sharing" ?

    Personally, what I do is to change the library ID of my iTunes installation to a common one.
    All the PCs and laptops at home have iTunes installed, all with the same library ID.
    That way, I can sync to ANY computer, and not worry about anything getting wiped/erased.

    Just google "change itunes library id" for instructions on how to do this.
