    My brother got an app for his own iPod Touch and it's synced with his PC. I want to get his app on my device. Of course, the message says that my computer needs to be authorized to install the app on my iPod Touch.

    Is he able to log into his iTunes on my computer and just authorize that one app on my PC or is it not that simple?

    What you are asking to do is steal the app. pay for it and be honest.

    The above posts are incorrect. Apple allows you to authorize up to 5 computers per account (for household sharing on your local network). It's legal and it's not stealing. He logs into his iTunes account on your computer. Then, authorize your computer. Next, download any items he legitimately purchased via iTunes. Log him out of your computer and you log back in. Enjoy the apps!

    If anyone doubts, http://www.apple.com/itunes/features/
