    1. Make sure that you have waited at least 24 hours after activating Family Sharing.
    2. Make sure that you are looking in the correct place for the shared items. You will want to look in the PURCHASED section of the App Store and click on your daughter's name there to see her purchases.

    I would be nice if Apple could make the sharing feature more consumer friendly. If someone in your family account has downloaded a media file or app at a price the other family members should see the media file or App as something to download with the iCloud icon instead of seeing by the original price. Currently someone could pay for the same media file or app when it was already purchased by a family member.

    Strange... Once I went to download something, it had a price on it... when I clicked to buy it - I got a pop-up that it was already purchased by a FamilyShare member and I should download it from that FamilyShare member's purchased items...

    Ok, thanks for clarifying. I should have tested it before I posted that comment.
