    Quick question, my brother has an ipod touch 2g 8gb. He has some app and games he bought that I want, I know I can buy them but just wondering is a way to share the app on home sharing like with songs?

    As long as you share the same account you can download all of his data. :D

    Have you tried it on home share? I would just give it a go and see what happens. As long as you have both authorized accounts on each others computers it will work. If not, plug his iPod into your computer, right click on the iPod's name in the left menu bar and select "Transfer Purchases". If it asks, enter his iTunes login info and all his purchased songs/Apps will be downloaded to your computer. :cool:

    I do this a lot with friends so I know it works. However, an iPod can only "sync" with 5 accounts, even if you manage music manually.
    Hope this helps!

    Sorry i dont have an ipod touch, yet...

    So could I home share with a friend when we have different accounts? Okay, could somebody explain it to me without the Apple support website, cause I'm not really understanding, thanks.

    It has nothing to do with iPod touch. It's an iTunes thing. It has to do with accounts. So if you had a buddy that authorized his computer to your account he could look through your library (your computer has to be on and connected to the same wifi) and drag/drop songs into his library. However, his computer then becomes one of the 5 computer that you can authorize on your account. Make sense?:rolleyes:
