Question: Unable to download apps with family sharing

I have family sharing enabled and I had already paid for Minecraft purchase. According to Apple's family plan I should be able to share the purchase on 6 devices, however, my son isn't able to download the app for free. App store is asking him to purchase again.

If you don't see your family's shared content - http://support.apple.com/HT201454
