    Hello. I have 2 itunes accounts. One is my old purchases account (gmail) and the other is my icloud account. I've set all my devices to work only with the icloud account by setting a family, so i can download my previous purchases.

    I would like to download a free app on my iCloud account, but the store says it's already purchased by a family member, so I can only download it, without purchasing it. I would like to purchase it because I intend to dismiss my old account in the future.
    So to purchase it I was thinking to exit from the family with my old account, make the purchase with the new one, and login into the family again with the old one. What is it going to happen to the apps already installed in my devices?

    Anyway I found the solution by myself. It turns out that by hiding the purchase on the old account I was able to purchase the same app again on the newer account.
    So no need to logout from the family.
