How to view the purchased apps "As a family"

Many of you will have a shared account "In Family" , where you can share your applications, Apple Music or even an iCloud Drive space.
At the moment, it is only possible to see the purchases of each of the members of the account if we access them directly , if we are browsing the App Store, we will not have any prior notice until we buy the application.
We remind that we can even have a child as a member and configure purchases with prior authorization , if necessary.

What happens if I buy an application that a family member already had?

You can now share iCloud Drive "En familia" thanks to iOS 11
If the application has already been purchased by another member of the family, an informative message will appear warning us (as long as you have shared the apps). From there, it will give us two options .
The first will be to download the application without returning it to pay, the second will be to pay for it to have it in property . Do not forget that if we leave an account "In family", we will not have the privilege of having applications that have been purchased by another member.
Not all applications are configured to share them as a family, nor do they all support the sharing of integrated purchases , but in case they are, we should not have any kind of problem.
As we said at the beginning, there is also the possibility to enter into the purchases of another member and manually search for the application that we want. Yes, this member has it, we can download it from their own list.
To see the purchases of other members of the family, we have to enter the App Store, click on our name and then on "Bought . "
In this section "My purchases" will appear, where our own purchases will appear. Right below, we will see the family members. If we click on each of the members, we will have a list of all its applications.
The order of the applications is by date of download , from the most recent to the oldest. Luckily, we have a search engine to find our desired app.
We insist that this method is to review the applications and be able to download them directly from there, but if we want an application that has already been purchased by a member, the App Store will notify us to download it for free or buy it on our own.
The applications, music, location or space in iCloud, you can enable it from your Apple ID on your iOS device. Here you will have control of what you want to share with the other members of the family.
You already know how to find the applications of the members that you have "In Family"and what would happen in case you buy the same as one of the associated members. So download it quietly, they will not charge you twice (unless you want to own it).
