I was anxiously awaiting the icloud release and couldn’t wait to sync up all of my devices with this new innovation. I plugged in my ipad to my mac book air and felt like a kid at christmas, fevorishly waiting to see what it would do to my ipad: how it would change the look, what would be better, and how much quicker things would be. I finished the whole long (and it was long) process and put in my new password. Then to my dismay most of my purchased apps had disappeared!!!! As had many of my playlists on itunes. I was on the verge of a mini meltdown. BUT thankfully apple already had a solution to this problem. To save you all from the enjoyable spoken menu and wait on hold time I will tell you how to fix this problem if it happens to you.
On any device (mac computer a bit faster though probably) go into your itunes account where you see your library, apps, music etc all on the left and click on itunes store.
Once in the itunes store – on the right hand side of the main screen you will see “Quick links” – select the option that says “purchased” it also has a big orange sign next to that that says ‘new’ (I wonder why 😉 ) Then go through each tab your music, tv, apps, and books and at the bottom right hand corner of the screen you will see “download all” select that on each one of your tabs.
Then all you have left is to do is sync your other devices and whalah you have your fabulous apps that you can’t live without back.
I hope this saves all of you this panic moment that I had. Enjoy the icloud!
