Cannot download desired app from AppStore

I have an iPod touch G4, iOS 6.0. I want to download Crackle, but the "free" button appears to be pressed. My iPod did D/L it, but my daughter's, same parameters, cannot.

I sent an email to Crackle, and got their automated response saying essentially,

"We review these messages, but you'll never hear from us, because we're too busy reading Mad Magazine and eating peanuts. Good luck, sweetheart."

OB1 MacRumors, you're my only hope!

Do you sync both iPods to the same PC? Do you each have your own iTunes account ID or do you share one?

Her iPod hasn't been synced yet > Christmas gift, used for kid stuff, so why sync anyway. She has her own everything, just like if you owned it. So, why won't the AppStore let her download Crackle so she can watch The Three Stooges?
It's bizarre to see the FREE button already pressed!

Yep, bizarre. Did you try force-closing all the apps and doing a full power down and reboot?

I tried everything you said, even dressed the cats as Shakespearean characters and tried to d/l Crackle again, but still the same already pressed "free button" is there.

My last suggestion would be to backup and restore the iPod. Then, please post a picture of the dressed up cats!

This is so embarrassing! I am my own worst enemy. I had set my daughters iPod to allow only PG-13 and sweeter programming. Crackle will play ANYTHING, regardless of rating, so the iPod would not permit this possibly naughty movie playing program to be downloaded. I wonder if after downloading, I can restrict Crackle to PG-13 max programming. Hmmmm. Does anyone know the answer to that?

Just think of all the time I wasted on making King Lear and his queen costumes! LOL!

Yep. There are parental controls in Crackle. Just go to settings.
