Question. Hello, I am used to the Apple App Store where one apple account can buy an app and then it can be used on any iOS iDevice that is tied to that apple account. How does this work on Android?
Answer. Good question! It should work very similarly. Instead of an apple account, your apps will be tied to your Google Account. You should be able to install and re-install on any device that you own. This is particularly hand when you upgrade to a new phone or tablet!
*it may be possible for a specific developer to tie an app to a particular device, but most apps should NOT have the “feature” and in all likelihood it will be disclosed, or an app that did this might have some pretty negative reviews in the Android Market pointing it out.
