    ok, so i downloaded a good bit of apps from app store on my gfs comp and now im at home and just purchased one and want to add it, but it says it will erase whatever isnt on this computer.

    i saw someone had posted a thread like this, but was yelled at before a straight answer was really given. its prob a dumb question, but if i sync, will i lose anything? or just gain the one app i just paid for?

    Do you guys share itunes accounts? If so then you can just sync apps, and it should transfer the apps to your computer, and visa versa. But the computer has to authorize.

    If you guys have different accounts then you cannot sync the apps, or it will be delted.

    i also have a similar problem i used to maintain all my music and apps from a different computer until it died on me i am now using another computer with itunes on it and i want to transfer my apps from my iphone to the computer when i press sync it comes up with the message "are you sure you want to sync application? All existing applications and their data on the iphone #### will be replaced with applications from this itunes library."
    i have quite a few apps and i dont want to risk losing them all it would really suck

    Well my mom and i both have ipod touches, and we share an account too. So, if she buys an app i want or vice versa, on different computers, then i can just go to the appstore and click 'buy app' on the app that she already bought, and i get, "You have already purchased this app, would you like to download again for free?" So just try buying it again and it should give it to you for free if it was already purchased on your account

    I had the same problem. Sync my iphone and lose one app that is not on itunes store anymore (myrail lite). But I still have it in my itouch, just wondering how to transfer it over

    Copy the apps over with a memory stick or something, then put them in and it will say authorize, then just put in your password.
