    What are people doing about management of App purchases on multiple iPads?

    I've seen lots of mentions across t'internet of people syncing apps to 20-30 iPads from 1 iTunes account, cloning with backups etc. Surely this isn't OK licensing-wise for purchased apps?

    We have less than 10 here currently, but we have opted to set them all up with individual Apple IDs which is a royal pain, but we can't see how else to deal with the legality of app purchases.

    Would be interested to hear other peoples ideas on this.

    Legally you are probably doing it the right way, although you can just purchase through one account, then gift to all others, but for your own sanity, you may want to look at a third party management software solution, such as the ones posted. Until apple gives UK volume app licensing, i dont see many more options.

    Need some more input into doing some simple things with IPADS!!!

    First of just a reminder i work in primary school, so I need a solution which is easy for kids
    to use.

    1) Can we print to the school Ricoh Photocopiers & the Konica Minolta Laser Printer easily?
    2) Can we save work to a single network location easily

    Thank you

    Yes and Yes.

    Ricoh Copiers and the Konica Minolta are not AirPrint ready, but if you are running a Mac Server (a Mac Mini Server) to help manage your devices then Printopia creates an AirPrint ready service for shared printers. I haven't had a chance to see how network print stations / copiers are taking to the AirPrint side of things but I can understand if they want to be a bit careful otherwise all sorts of people could send 'interesting' things to print.

    Saving to a single network location is likely to be best via a WebDAV share. Most servers will give you this functionality for either a generic share or for individual user shares.

    Another vote here for Printopia - it does seem to work quite well. Nothing special required, and dirt cheap!

    Sorted for the printing side, trialing out FingerPrint by Collobos - works well & simple to install

    +1 for the UnoCarts mentioned earlier, we have sold a few of those so far with excellent reviews thus far.

    Another thing I notice nobody has mentioned, you can create a single exchange account, and link that across all devices, allows you to use some decent features through ActivSync device policies (through OWA on the Manage My Organisation Section - Exch 2010/07).

    Some features of ActivSync Device Policies that WORK with Apple (some features available don't) are:
    - Require a password (enforce strengths available
    - Password lifetimes
    - Enable/Disable Text messaging
    - Enable/Disable Camera
    - Allow WiFi
    - Allow Bluetooth

    Plus, its free & most people already have exchange servers - so I guess its just 1 CAL really.

    Hope it helps,

    Jack

    It just leaves me cold

    Just in general, the fanatical push to these things leaves me cold....from an enterprise "ready" point of view they are a long way away from being a viable solution.

    The deployment tools are not great....the licensing model is non-existant(what has been suggested by others here is illegal, but there is no other way for now...) and the management (via iTunes!!!!) is ridiculous.....

    When the Apple person said sync by iTunes from one computer...I nearly told him to get out.....

    I am asking staff what the actual requirement is, then showing how it can be achieved with the current technology standards/portfolio in place. The current support model is almost 3 times that of the mac/PC support models in my calculations.....

    I readily admit I am no expert on these things, but when the basic questions cannot be answered in a way I expect, then I cannot consider the item....

    Volume licensing has opened for a number of countries.
    I've just moved a thread into this forum where it was discussed. It's stickied at the top.
    Apple iOS Volume Purchase Programme

    Unfortunately, it's not available everywhere, so i guess, we're forced to maintain multiple individual accounts all with no payment details on, or download / buy once and then copy to multiple devices.
