Default How to buy apps for future devices

Is there a way to buy an app for future devices.

I want to get a free app (being offered free right now for a limited time) but it will not work on my phone. But one day I will get a new phone or tablet, and by then the app will not be free.

I think this is crazy that you can't get an app even if it is not compatible with your device.

Any ideas?

no, you can only purchase it and install it later on the new device from your Google account.
it will remember your purchase history. and allow you to download the purchased application once you sign in with the account you bought it on.

you may also want to watch those "free application" offers, some of them are fishy and scandalous. =]
