Wrong section.

This should be in the lounge.

Judging by this post, I figure it's probably something you're doing wrong.

apps can only be synced from one computer, I already tried this they don't copy unless your on your computer that the iPod is original synced too.

i do not think you can get apps from a different comp. Music is possible but i think apps is only from 1 computer. You may be able to download it again for free once you get home though. Or you could just contact apple if you dont want to spend the money again.

Did you purchase the app through the same account you normally purchase apps for you device and have you authorized that computer for your device.

To authorize connect your device, open iTunes and log into your iTunes account, then from the top bar menu select Store, then Authorize Computer.

Bring application's .ipa file to home and open it.
iTunes will import application and you will be able to sync it.
