    Hello all, i was in the appstore yesterday and started to download an app when it came up with a message saying 'This app will be available for download when you log into iTunes store on your PC'. So i connected my ipod to my pc and it downloaded it, but when i tryed it today it said the same thin. Just wondering weather anyone else had the sane problem and any ideas on how to solve it.

    Thanx

    had the same problem...

    1. I'm kinda confused... did you download it on iTunes?

    2. If you have downloaded it sync it to your iPod

    3. If you haven't downloaded the app and still can't figure it out, click iTunes store from the top bar and hit "check for purchases" and it will download the application for you!

    PEACE

    yer i clicked check for purchases and then it started downloading it. i then put it on my ipod but when i wanted to download another app by my ipod it came up with the message again. It looks as if i can only download from my pc.

    i had this too! But when i went to my iTunes to download it instead I had to agree to new iTunes terms & conditions first, then I never had a problem after that.

    I heard something about when apps are too large to download (over Edge/3G for iPhones of course) you have to use iTunes instead. I guess it applies to wi-fi too maybe. Was it a large app you were downloading?

    I think to fix it you need to delete the actual app off your home screen on the ipod, then sync it onto your ipod again through itunes.

    i had this problem too. you have to go into settings and allow it to accept cookies in the safari settings, it worked fine after that. try it out if thats your situation.
