Question
I just bought skyfall on the iTunes Store. I bought it on my ipad and I want to fee up more space and move the movie file to my laptop iTunes.. Pretty reasonable.. Paid like $14 for the file I don't want to just delete it... But will I be able to do this ?

Answer
Moving files to and from iPads and iPhones is not obvious or easy.
You bought it on iTunes, you cannot just download the file onto the laptop?

Summary
With iTunes 10.3 or later and iOS 4.3.3 or later, you can download your previous purchases directly to an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV or computer that has been associated to your Apple ID.

Moving files that are not available through iTunes usually involves Dropbox, or other online storage and sync services.
