    can I download a purchased app to more than 1 device?

    if I purchase an app on my Thrive, can I download it to my android phone or do I need to purchase it separately? I have several apps that I would love to share on my phone, but I do not want to purchase them again. Thanks for the help.

    I download to both all the time. They both have to use the same account.

    In the market click the options button at the bottom of the screen (leftmost on my droid x) one of the selections is my apps.

    Just note some apps may not be available for your phone that are for the tablet and vice-versa. Nature of the fragmented beast.

    For The Market (Google) you can find a history of all your apps (paid or free) across all devices through the web page interface. The app will show all of your "paid" paid across all devices, but not the free ones.

    Yep, long as your Android devices are using the same account. Just have to go to the market and select the app. It will ask you which device to install to. Love the fact once you paid for the app it will let me reinstall it many times as I always wipe my device during rom flash. Wish Microsoft work this way without giving us so much grief on reinstalls.

    I just want to add that although you can download all your apps across all the devices connected to the one account ... When it is time to update, you must do it on each device ... For example ... When I update an app (Android Market) on my Thrive it still shows that it (Android Market) needs to be updated on my Evo 3D .

    Sort of a sidebar comment about the type of application - potential security or at a minimum information sharing issue - see the following link:

    Just sharing a link that was sent to me today.
