I have 2 apple IDs, a verizon.net that was created before iCloud existed and then an iCloud.com one that I created because of the iCloud.com email address (back then, verizon was a junk pop3 email that wouldn’t sync between devices). Unfortunately some of my apps were purchased through the Verizon account while others through the iCloud.com account.

I realize that Apple won’t allow me to merge accounts or transfer my purchases from one account to another, but it’s really annoying to have to sign out of my iCloud account account and sign into my verizon account to download a previous purchase or update an app, and then have to switch back to my iCloud account.

Does anyone know a good way of dealing with short of repurchasing all of my paid apps on the iCloud account? Would Family Share be of any use to me?

family share sounds like a great idea, do you still have access to both emails? To add someone they get sent an email to click.
