    help!

    Advertisement



    A friend from church has a ipad and upgraded to os5. I restored her backup and she got nearly everything back. However she has apps showing up in iTunes that aren't on the pad. How do I get those on?

    I wont be there until after 4 est, but I'd live some advice.

    Thanks.

    Just sync the iPad with iTunes and it should restore the apps.

    Does she have an iPhone also and synced it with the same pc? If so, some of the apps that are on her iPhone will not work on an iPad.

    I think just the pad. All I've been asked to help with.

    Thanks guys. If I have problems I'll let you know...gotta fix her router first.

    She's on iOS5. Go to the app store, click the purchase tab. All her purchases will be there. There's a tab that says "not on this iPad" so you don't have to see all, just the ones not on there yet.

    All apps will work on the iPad. Just iPhone specific ones won't run full screen.

    Hmm. That's strange. Some of mine won't download on the iPad. Idk. May have something to do with the Jailbreak.

    If you're going to use iTunes to put them on ere, just make sure all of them are checkmarked before you start the sync. Sync Apps, on the left hand side you'll be able to scroll and see all the apps make. If she wants them all they all need to be checked.

    question, she didn't leave a cable, and i'm struggling to get it to recognize the pc, says it will sync when pc available. i found all the apps on the store, i guess i can dl one at a time unless you have any ideas.

    Not sure on that one. Do you have iTunes 10.5 installed?

    If its not that many apps left to download it won't be hard. Put the app store on the first page. Go in, download the first app, when it takes you back to the springboard( my biggest grip with the app store), hit the home button go back into the app store, you'll be right where you left off. Select the next app and so on. On iOS 5 it will start the process of more than one app at a time. Once you get them started just set it down and let it finish.

    Just an update. Thanks to BHP I succeeded in getting it squared away.

    I gave credit where it was due. She was happy to have her apps back.

    Honestly can't figure iTunes...so cumbersome.
