    Hi All,

    I recently setup my farthers new ipad for him using my itunes account. Now that he has a credit card he now wants his own account.

    My question is will the programs he bourght still work if he uses his new account not mine. The programs were bought on my account.

    The ipad is still been synced to the same computer.

    Thanks All

    It will work, however when there are updates for Apps, you'll need to login to the account the Apps were purchased on in order to update them.

    This applies to updating from your PC as well as updating directly on the iPad.

    It's not really a huge deal. A lot of folks have 2 iTunes accounts (say a US account and a regional account.) When you update Apps, you get a message that not all Apps were updated. You can ignore it, or login to the other account and tap Update All again.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I had a horrable feeling that the apps are tide to the one account and they would stop working.

    Thanks for the help.
