    Red face iPod touch - moving an app from MacBook Pro
    This is probably a daft question but I'm wondering if it is possible to copy an application I have on my MacBook Pro onto my iPod Touch?

    I'm not sure which version iPad it is but it was bought in around 2009 - the software seems to be 5.1.1.

    The application is something I bought and is on a DVD which I installed on to my laptop - I would like to be able to use this on my iPod whilst out and about as the app I bought from iTunes is not nearly as good as the one I have on DVD.

    I hope this makes sense and that some nice kind person(s) is/are able to help me.

    Not possible. Your Mac uses and runs on OS X, mobile devices use and run on iOS. Two different operating systems. Check with the developer, perhaps there is a similar app for iOS.

    ..and liberal with your usage of iPod Touch, iPod and iPad in one post..

    But yeah apps can be targeted to just iPod Touch/iPhone, just iPad or work on both. Apps for OS X are just going to work on the right version of OS X(and in most cases above)..
