I have an iphone with quite a few apps.

Basically im getting her an ipod touch for finishing Uni in a couple of months.

She loves a few of my games, Doodle Jump especially.

Is it possible to put these on her ipod touch?

I know music can be put on several devices but will apps be a problem?

Thanks for any replies :)

go ahead

The way you do this is to login to your iTunes account from her iPod or iTunes to download the Apps you have already paid for. Sometimes you will be forced to do this again in order to update some paid apps. The computer that her iPod id synced to must also be authorized to play your iTunes content.

Of course, this means that her iPod will be linked to your account, and anything she downloads will be as well. Paid apps will come out of your credit card, not hers.

So, yes, you can do it, but there's a bit of a catch attached. Unless you can link one iPod with 2 accounts, which I don't believe is possible.
