  1. hi.
    i’m downloading from itunes by IDM by your help intro..
    whene download is completed i adding the ipa file to application tab in itunes.but the app icon (Artwork) in itunes is not loaded and not working…
    i sync that app on ipad but not worked..
    pls help me..

  2. OH me too. I did exactly as you said. Everything was fine until I tried to open my downloaded apps on my iphone. IDM downaloded the apps with a very good speed. However, the file we downloaded does not have some necessary signature. For example, when we added the downloaded file to itune library, it said unknown genius. When we right click on the app and click on “get information”, there is no information available. I assume that those necessary information or signature can be obtained only when we use itune to download them. Therefore, yes we can use idm to download them but they will not work. (they might work on jailbreak phone, but I am not sure)
