Brand new convert to Apple here from numerous years of Windows.


I downloaded Angry birds rio on my Imac last night. I thought it would automatically replicate onto my Ipad. But it hasn't, and isnt showing in the store as not downloaded.

Can anybody guide me through what I need to change in settings Etc, or isn't it available on my ipad as well as mac. I see in the Ipad store it is available for the Ipad.

Your Mac and your iPad are completely different. Your Mac runs on OSX, where the iPad is on iOS. You cannot copy and run applications made for OSX on iOS and vice versa.

You will need to open the iTunes app store on the Mac ot ipad and download angry birds for the iPad separately.

Apps (music and photos) on your iOS devices will replicate with iCloud, but as Deckyon said, your Mac is a different thing..

So if I have to download again, does that mean I have to purchase it again.

Short answer, yes.

2 different devices, 2 different licenses needed. Only between iPhone and iPad and iPod Touch can the apps be installed on multiple devices, but that is not 100% of the time. Some apps are iPhone/iPod Touch only, some are iPad only, some are universal.

You're not purchasing it 'again' as such, that suggests you're paying for the same thing twice, but that's not the case, they are two distinct things.

Like buying a Dunlop tyre for a motorcycle and one for a car - same manufacturer, same product name, very different fit.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Yes, it's nothing at all to do with it being two different devices -- it's to do with it being two different operating systems.*

Like when you buy MS Office for Windows and then want MS Office for Mac for Mac -- you have to buy the Mac version separately.

*geek point of order, I know iOS is actually drawn from OS X but for all intents and purposes they are two separate operating systems.
