  • unofficially, and untested, maybe finding the purchased app on your mac/pc (.ipa file), plugin your wife's iPad, open up iFunbox, and install the .ipa into your Wife's iPad. (the app purchased is by you, and your wife gets and uses it for free) THIS HASN'T BEEN TESTED. try at your own risk, because I think it would work, but I don't know – MrU Jun 24 '15 at 0:34
  • @MrU If it were that easy, everybody would be doing it ;) – Tetsujin Jun 24 '15 at 4:25
  • Well I don't know if everyone's doing it. eh? – MrU Jun 24 '15 at 9:37

Family Sharing

Apple offers Family Sharing where you can share ownership of the app with your wife. No need for an additional purchase.
