I purchased the app RedLaser for my iPhone. I am 99% sure it was showing up amongst the apps on my iPad. I tried moving the app to a different location and it seems to have disappeared. I would like to get it back on to my iPad even though I know it doesn't work because the iPad doesn't have a camera. Is it possible to restore the app. FYI, the app is still on my iPhone.

Thanks, Howard

Just redownload it from the App Store. The buy bar will say a price, but as long as the two devices are on the same iTunes account it'll be free.

Tried to Re-Download; Can't

I tried to follow the advice given and re-download. When I go to the apps store on the iPad, it can't find RedLaser. When I search on the iPhone, it finds it, but the indication is "Installed" -- so I can't redownload.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Howard

Thanks for responding. I know it uses a camera and the iPad doesn't have one. That being said, ShopSavvy also uses a camera, but it does show up (though it doesn't work) on my iPad. I would just like to have RedLaser show up. Is it possible?

Thank you. Howard

DEvelopers choose whether or not their apps are compatible with iPads. The developer of RedLaser obviously thought that the camera was too central to the experience to allow the app on iPad.

1. It's "realized." But this is a corny point so you can just ignore it.
2. If you don't have enough money then chances are that your bank will charge you an overdraft fee so you might wish to get that cleared out asap.
3. If you purchase an app by mistake, Apple lets you refund it for ONCE in a lifetime thing. It happened with me once on my 1G iPod Touch and they refunded but now I'm never allowed to refund another app again (even if it is another mistake).
4. For unrelated questions, start a new thread but search first rather than posting in some random thread.
