    Have a few questions:

    1) If I purchase an app, will it stay with me no matter how many iPads I have?

    2) If I decide to return the iPad I currently have, will my apps carry over to a new iPad?

    3) How does iTunes work as far as syncing goes? I'm not sure how this whole thing works...

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. :cool:

    1 -- If you purchase an app lets say on appleID of, then on ANY iOS device you can download that app/movie/tv show/book using that same appleID and not pay for it again (it should say INSTALL on the app store instead of BUY)

    2 -- If you return it make sure you have a backup via PC/Mac or iCloud. Assuming you have that getting a new iPad you just restore from backup and everything is there.

    3 -- iTunes can sync via home Wifi or through USB Cable. I prefer WiFi since my iPhone is usually downstairs and my computer is upstairs. Syncing will copy apps/music/itunes stuff to your iOS device.

    Any other questions let me know.
