I am having this problem: I purchase an app and when I try to load it onto my other iPad the price/install button is grayed out and it won't load onto the other iPad. Help and thanks. Maur

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

You should be able to do this so maybe it's just the app playing up, give this step a try. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. There is a way to automatically download all apps, books etc to all your devices under the same ID when you purchase an item. Settings - App Store then turn on Automatic downloads. Let us know how you go.
