Hi guys,
how can I transfer the apps from an iPod touch to the iPhone?
will I need to pay again for the apps that I have already bought on the iPod touch?

Thanks in advance

Should just be able to plug your iphone into PC and apps will transfer. Think you need to give authorisation to the iphone to use app's off that itunes.

Me and my friend have both got ipod touch's and if i buy anything and transfer it onto my itunes, he can plug his in and they transfer over without extra cost so i'd assume same would apply for ipod/iphone.

Would you know how to give authorisation to the iPhone? When I plug the iPhone in it says something like 'Iphone not recognised by itunes' and so it won't sync unless It deletes everything of my iPhone first

aah..not at home so cant be too sure but i think if you plug it in and i think it's tools or something at the top, click that and then authorise. Still needs to sync but will just copy all apps already on itunes on to iphone.

you dont even need to bother resyncing-just download all the apps "over air" on the phone via wi fi-use the same account details to log into itunes on the phone as you used to buy them on the touch-you will get a prompt"you already bought this,do you want to download again for free"-thats how I do it.

oh that's sounds easy enough then. When I went on app store it said £1 something next to the app already purchased, so I thought it would charge again. Thanks repped

all the sat nav apps have a disclaimer saying they "strongly reccommend downloading via a pc",and NOT doing it direct to the phone-I downloaded ndrive direct to phone with no problems tho.

Also use Ndrive from Itunes. really good and on sale price at the moment. £9.99. I downloaded on PC my son downloaded via phone. Both worked ok
