Hi there
I have 2 Ipads that I use in class with kids. We are planning to buy more. I want to know how I can share apps between the two Ipads that we use in class. Do I have to purchase them twice (or 10 times if we have 10 Ipads?)

Help please. I have searched thru the help menu in itunes to no availe.

Thanks

    no apps have ever been tied to any ios device apps are always tied to an Apple_ID account
    if both ipads sync with the same itune both have the same apps bought on that apple_ID itune account

    Thanks.
    I am using the same Itunes log in and password. They should be the same. Yet one IPad has a purchased App and it does not show up on the other Ipad. How do I fix that?

    If purchased on the iPad then when connected to your computer you can do File > Transfer Purchases in iTunes, and then you connect the other iPad and sync it to it. If purchased on the computer you can just sync to the other iPad when you connect it. Alternatively you can download (apps can be re-downloaded for free, music and films can't) the app for free directly on the second iPad - it may still show the price in the store when you select it, but when you click 'buy' you should get a popup saying that you've already purchased it and do you want to re-download it.

    and when you don those steps your apps should show up under the LIBRARY->APPS

    and when they do you can add them by connecting the other ipad and going to it's APP tab and add them

    Yes, you must purchase the app multiple times. Purchases are for your personal use.
    It's like any other software. You cannot purchase one copy and install it on all computers in the school.
    Schools can make multiple purchases for the l and get vol

    "APP STORE PRODUCT USAGE RULES

    You may download and sync a Product for personal, noncommercial use on any Apple-branded products running iOS (“iOS Product”) you own or control.

    (ii) If you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, you may download and sync a Product for use by either (a) a single individual on one or more iOS Product you own or control or (b) multiple individuals, on a single shared iOS Product you own or control. For example, a single employee may use the Product on both the employee's iPhone and iPad, or multiple students may serially use the Product on a single iPad located at a resource center or library."

    Must each iPad in school be given an Apple ID?

    If you go the link that Chris CA posted above - App Store Volume Purchase Program - and read the information on the main page - it appears as though only one Apple ID is needed - and that would be in the hands of the Program Facilitator - if you only have one assigned facilitator. If you have multiple facilitators - you need multiple ID's for each one.

     

    From the FAQ page on the site .....

     

    I’m an authorized Program Manager. How do I establish Program Facilitators?

     

    You can set up and manage your institution’s list of Program Facilitators using the Program Facilitator account manager tool. Apple will create a new Apple ID for each Program Facilitator to use exclusively at the ASVPP portal. Existing Apple IDs cannot be used within ASVPP. For each Program Facilitator, you will need to provide Apple with a valid email address that isn’t currently used as an Apple ID.
