All you need is i Tunes on OS X or Windows logged into the same Apple ID as what’s used on the i OS device, and the rest is easier than you’d probably expect.
A quick overview for the unfamiliar: Automatic App Downloads is aimed at simplifying app management for users who own multiple i OS devices.
Grab the i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch and enable Automatic App Downloads: need to enable the Automatic Updates feature for this to work.
Because Automatic Updates can significantly drain battery by running and updating your apps on it’s own, it’s often a good idea to keep that turned off and selectively manage your own app updating, particularly for users with many apps installed.
You can import you CD collection into i Tunes and quickly browse for the tracks that you want to listen.
The “Music” folder is also typically kept as a quick link in the Finder window sidebar, which you can then use to access the directory: Windows In Windows your i Tunes music is going to be stored in one of several directories, depending on the version of Windows. These directories contain your locally stored media, music, and movies, but they are not where i Tunes backups of i OS devices are stored, which are found elsewhere.
No big deal, use this trick to install the app while you’re at the office and miles away from home, that app will be installed and waiting for you when you return to the i Pad.
Or maybe you’re upstairs on your Mac while your i Phone is charging downstairs, but you want to install a game while it’s temporarily available for free?
Once authenticated, the i Tunes play bar will note that an app is downloading and show a progress bar, indicating that the remote app install has started as well.
The screenshot example below uses the currently trendy Splashy Fish game to demonstrate this: Meanwhile, on the i OS device (an i Phone shown in example screen shot), that very same Splashy Fish game is downloading as well.
