    I bought an IMac in November, it is now April.
    I bought my 2 boys an ipod touch 4th gen for xmas.
    So far, I haven't embraced the Mac experience.
    I am incredibly frustrated whenever I try to do anything.
    I finally opened an itunes account, and boy that was FUN (NOT).
    So now I've downloaded some free apps onto my Imac.
    Can someone tell me how, or show me where to find the instructions on how to make the apps go onto the ipods?
    Thanks for any real help.

    So I think the next step for you is to sync the iPods and make sure the apps are transferred by clicking on the device and then going to the "apps" tab.

    You'll have to keep both iPods on the same account, but I don't think that should be a problem if they're being synced to the same iMac.

    when you plug the ipods in it will sync with itunes you need to go to the application tab after clicking on the ipod icon on the right side of itunes where it says music, applications and downloads, ect. Make sure it is all checked for being synced with your ipod. at the very bottom it shows u how much info is being put on your ipod and what each color means to the left of that is sync. Hit that and you will have music and apps from your mac onto your ipod. If you dont want the music go to the music tab at the top and uncheck it so it doesnt sync it.

    This may be a no brainer but make sure you have downloaded iPod apps not mac apps, If you have downloaded apps through the mac apps store those are strictly for your desktop.
