    Go into the App Store and make sure there is sharing for the app. Some developers don't allow it.

    Are they different types of devices? What I mean is, are you using an iphone and the other device an ipad? Make sure the app in question is not a iphone or ipad only device, and that your device is set to show it. iPads can be set to show iPad OR iPhone apps, and the iPhone apps will work. On the iPhone, the iPad only apps probably won't work.

    Could be as Zerog said, perhaps the developer does not allow sharing?

    Purchased items may not be instantly available on other family users accounts... It might take an overnight process for Apple to share items...

    You've only tried 1 purchase. As stated above by kch50428, give it time. If it doesn't straighten out, give iTunes a call or an email.

    What I mean is does your name show up in her phone with the app located in there?

    Sorry I got it backwards the first time.

    So if you select your name on her phone, does the app appear then?

    In the App Store, are you going to Updates > Purchased > and then Family Purchases > and then selecting Your Name?
