    My sister and I have both an ipod touch. We respectively have our own computer too. I set up the same itunes account on her computer as mine. If I were to pay for an app could she also download it without having to pay a second time?

    Thanks!

    You don't have to download it again; just sync it to both of them.

    Oh, sorry, I over looked that.
    Just go to your iTunes directory and copy your app library over to her computer.

    Both computers must be logged into the same account. Maximum of 5 computers can be activated per account.

    Do you mean if I want to redownload them or taking them from one computer and then putting it in the other as SolarFlare suggested?

    Thanks!

    As long as both of them are logged in to the same iTunes account that you purchased the apps, music, video, etc. on, you will have access to them on both iTunes Libraries. Just make sure they are the same account, can't stress it enough.

    Actually no. He can transfer all the Apps from the iTunes folder. Then activate the computer with his account.
