I had an iPhone 3G, and my girlfriend and I constantly play games on it. When then the 3GS came out, I bought one with the intention of giving my girlfriend the 3G to use as a Touch (without SIM card), so she could play games any time, and so that I could have my phone back ;)

I think I have it running now, but of course the apps she's used to are all on my iTunes (Mac) and her iTunes is empty (PC).

Is there a way that she can have access to the apps (on my iTunes), which we co-paid for?

Also, if the solution involves sharing an iTunes account between my Mac and her PC, is there a way to make it so that our genius recommendations remain distinct? Our music tastes are not similar, so I don't want to receive her music & app recommendations.

Help me Obi-Wan(s), you're my only hope.

Install iTunes 9. It has a new feature called Home Sharing that'll let you share applications among up to five computers on a network.

I thought Home Sharing was only for music & videos. Are you sure it does applications? I don't see them mentioned on the page you link to. – lo_fye Sep 23 '09 at 18:25
    
Yes, it does also work for apps. – Sidnicious Sep 23 '09 at 20:19
    
Here is a link to the article that really explains it: macworld.com/article/142729/2009/09/homesharing.html – lo_fye Sep 24 '09 at 13:56
