Transfering a purchased App to iTunes

Druing the schmozzle of the 2nd last update to iTunes (& IOS), I was having difficulty getting updates for my Apps. I was updating them directly to the iPad and also purchased a few. With the latest update to IOS and iTunes, things are back to normal but I note that Apps puchased directly on the iPad aren't in my PC 's library. Any tips on how to transfer them ?

Typically when you connect it to iTunes, the purchases will transfer automatically.

You can also use the File->Devices->Transfer Purchases from <device name> to be sure they are transferred.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Hence the reason for my post - it does not transfer across. When the ipad is attached to the PC and iTunes, interestingly I can see the app on the relevant screen shot of the relevant page but the App is not listed as being installed. Very strange!

Have you clicked in iTunes File->Devices->Transfer Purchases from <iPad name>

Did that do anything?

Then the apps should be in the iTunes library.

Your alternative is to open the App Store in iTunes, click on Purchased, click on iPad, then click on the cloud to download it to iTunes.
