A friend recently bought a iPhone. Is it possible for me to give him some of my apps?
You have purchased the right to install those apps on any iPhone or iPod touch that You own.
Yes, set his iPhone to manually sync then plug it into your computer and drag and drop the apps to his phone. Should work.
I'm surprised this is possible. Good to know!
By your logic, giving people presents is illegal, because you've purchased the item for only you to use...
Logic fail. I don't think this even needs a rebuttal.
It is perfectly legal to share apps with a small number of people, as long as you authorise your itunes account on their PC (itunes can be authorised on a maximum of 5 PCs).
The same applies to music and videos, although not rented films.
No it is not legal to "share" apps. The 5 device restriction is there so you can use it on up to five devices. Just because that means you can doesn't make it legal.
Best way to (legally) give someone an app is just to buy some iTunes vouchers and suggest that they might like to buy the app you've suggested with them.
CNET's Brian Tong recently SHOWED how to do it on TV. Search the video and you'll find it.
Personally, I'd say it's as much legal as jailbreaking is even though I have never done either and probably never will.
I agree- kind of...
I could see transferring the apps as a gift to another person only if YOU don't intend to use the app anymore- at least on your own devices.
may not need one, but I did anyway.
I think it comes down to you pay for what you use. If you buy a product and give it to someone you not longer are using it (unless you go to their house or they loan it to you) I apply the same to downloadable stuff- I think that is the reasonable and honest thing to do.
The link to this video is in my previous post, two above yours.
Just cause it is seen on TV doesn't mean it is legal or ethical.
cant you just login with your account info on your friends device and dload the apps like that also??
Cant you just drag and drop the app files onto his iPhone??
Just to warn you, some applications can only be installed in one phone. This is specific to the ones, where you download the "mother" application from itune for free and then they ask you to purchase the within applications from their website (it involves credit cards, serial numbers...etc)
iMrNiceGuy0023, thats a good idea
