I have an app on my iPhone 4S. Apple has since pulled it from the store. I want to copy it to my iPod Touch (most recent gen). Both are up to date iOS 7. Any way to do this?

Not interested in jailbreaking either of these devices (no moral reason against, I have jailbroken other, just not going to happen. One is a daily driver phone and the other is company owned).

Shouldn't it still be available in the Purchased tab of the App Store even if it's pulled? i have apps that show there that you can't get new anymore
Not all pulled apps are still available to be downloaded from the Purchased tab. Most are, but some are not. I believe the developer has the option of making it not available as well as Apple.

Transfer the ipa using ifunbox and then using the ipa to install via itunes. It worked for my one app that i use and is now not available.
