If I Want To Install SkySafari 6 Pro On iOS And macOS Am I Required To Purchase The App Twice, Once For Each Different OS? (Answer: Yes)

A friend emailed an iTunes app gift of SkySafari 6 Pro. When I tried to download it to my iMac running Mojave 10.14.6, an error message (in iTunes) indicated SkySafari 6 Pro was not compatible with my iMac. I successfully downloaded it to an iPhone 11, but I would like it on my iMac. The gift giver was certain he gifted me a version of SkySafari 6 Pro that should be compatible on my iMac. May I download the gifted version to my iMac? How? I have an iTunes redeem code.  Thank you for your help (and stellar products). -Donna

    Hi Donna, 

    SkySafari 6 Pro requires a separate purchase for each different OS (iOS, macOS, Android).

    If the gift giver bought you only one SkySafari, then it is either for iOS or macOS, and not for both.

    Since you have downloaded SkySafari to your iPhone (iOS) that is gift you received.

    Downloading SkySafari 6 Pro for macOS will require either another gift card (specific for macOS), or a purchase of SkySafari 6 Pro from the Mac App Store.

    I hear Apple will (finally, around March) be allowing developers to have one purchase work for all platforms (iOS, Mac, tvOS, Apple Watch) as an option.
