    I have an account at home and my brother wants an iPod touch but he doesn't want to repay for all my good apps, so my question is if I set up his PC with my account would I be able to have the apps on that PC with out paying again...

    If anyone has a scenario like this I would like to here how it worked out...

    Also links to articles would be helpful...

    Apps can be kept on 5 Different computers.

    Sidenote: In your signature, it is paid "Through" iTunes. Not "Thew". You did not "Throw" it.

    Stupid spell check... I wasn't really looking...
    And thanks for the info, now would I have to re-download all the apps or is there a way I could copy them over?

    You could copy em over or re-download em if you want. Both work.

    After you transfer them, make sure to go to Store > Authorize

    I did the authorization of the PC and logged in...

    Transfer it within iTunes itself. Drag them into iTunes.
