This is different from the above three and with Tongbu, you will download and install apps by connecting your iDevice to the computer.

  5. Click the rectangular box under app icon to download.
  6. After download, the app will automatically sync/install to your device. (Else go to Apps under Library and install your app)

Here’s are few known issues faced by some of the users

  • All paid apps may not be present in Tongbu.
  • You may not be able to sync it with iTunes
  • Sometimes during sync, you might face an error as “This computer is not authorized for the purchased items”
  • After the sync, few users were not able to transfer the downloaded apps to their computer.

This Solution might work: For the above issues, check whether Tongbu profile certificate installed (Settings > General > Profile), if yes, you will have to remove it and then trying syncing again. Still not able to sync with iTunes? Can’t help, you may have to uninstall all the Tongbu apps and better not use it.

Few more issues: You might see your apps crashing and asking you to provide apple id and password when launching the downloaded apps. Clicking “Fix Crash” might fix the issue.
