    Really?

    My ICT Co-ordinator Fanbois told me you could sync/use the app up to 5 devices if synced with the one computer.

    I was under the impression from a friend who works in the apple store that the app can be sync'd to as many ipods\pads that you like providing the it resides in one itunes library on one machine.

    I may be wrong, but it would be useful to get this clarified sooner rather than later as we have plans to buy a few more soon.

    It's 5 devices per purchase..... I briefly had three devices on it last year, iphone 3g, ipad and iphone 4.

    It's a shame that Apple's volume licensing program for apps is US only

    You dont need a MacBook a windows PC can do it. Also you have posted this in the wrong board. An iPad is not a mac.

    Is there a document detailing this? Be good to have a hard copy for the licence cabinet in case anyone comes back and tries to say different.

    you can use this to setup configuration for any iOS device

    iPhone Configuration Utility 3.3 for Windows its available for mac and windows

    as for licensing, I've been involved in a number of threads here, but its still very unclear

    read here;Apple iPads and managing the Appstore

    and here Apple Leadership Event 19th October : Questions please

    Apple Genius' in MK store said that if you are running the device in an educational or business establishment it is a case of 1 licence for 1 product, if you are running it for personal use then its 1 licence for 5 products (iPod, iPhone, iPad, Mac etc)

    But when i comes to apps, im not sure how it works, as for a school, you only want 1 apple id, but if this 1 license 1 product, how would we go about getting 100 x the app we want for example, until apple finds a solution for education, the only way is to sync that 1 purchased apps to all your devices, or not have any apps at all.
