    Hi, Hope someone can help here

    We've just got an ipad and Im trying to put 3 apps i have on my iphone onto it.

    The apps were downloaded originally in itunes and then updated via the iphone app store to full versions.

    Ive done the transfer purchases from the iphone back to itunes but nothing happens but im sure they updated from iphone to itunes when i did it?

    When they go onto the ipad they are saying they are not purchased again and wanting me to pay again.

    Since I've purchased them surely there must be a way to get them to my ipad as the purchased version?

    Is your iPad logged into the same iTunes account that they were purchased under?

    Go into the app store on your iPad, they should be available for download on the Purchased tab.

    As long as it's the same account, they'll be there. There's even a section for apps that you've bought, but aren't currently on your iPad.

    IDK how the iPhone app store is set up, but in the iPad app store the Purchased section is down at the bottom, with Featured, Updates, etc.

    Ah ok thanks :)

    Hoping the trip to maccas tomorrow morning might then fix up this problem - very annoying really youd expect the apps if on itunes as purchased to come across to the ipad as purchased also especially if registered under the same app store user name

    ----------

    One more question - should i keep the apps on the ipad or remove them and then download them again under purchased or see 1st if the appstore connect works to unlock them?
