    I think Family Sharing is awesome. I did notice one bummer to be aware of. Let's say you go to the iTunes store to purchase a song and you are not aware that a family member has already bought the song. iTunes will not give you any indication that a family member has already purchased the song, and will allow you to pay for it.

    Yes, you could always check your family member's songs to ensure they have not already paid for the song before you buy it, but it would be nice for that song to show up in iTunes with the cloud logo showing you it has already been purchased instead of allowing you to pay for it.

    Hope :apple: makes this change in the future.

    Do you get charged for the purchase if made? For some things like in-app purchases, if you try purchasing a feature already bought, it won't charge you twice.

    So does anyone know the answer, do you actually get charged again if another family member has previously purchased an item and you didn't know and clicked buy in iTunes again? Anyone tested this yet?
