iPhone app . . .

by Coryphaeus / January 11, 2015 7:48 AM PST

Can an app on one iPhone be put on another iPhone? Both iPhones are synced to iTunes on two different PCs, two different accounts. Is it possible to copy the app from one PC to the other and sync that iPhone to that app? The app was free but is no longer offered.

not if it is two different accounts. The only way you can share apps between phones is by syncing on the same account.
