Default [Question] Can I put apps on more than one device

I have a Motorola Droid X and I am waiting on a Samsung Galaxy Tab. I plan on linking the gmail account from the droid x, to the Galaxy Tab. If I buy apps from the market place on the DX, can I get them for free on the Galaxy Tab?

I think it would be best to check with the developer of an app in question before becoming a target for copyright violation or bad stuff like that.

I have a g1 and n1 and all my paid apps work on both as long as I'm signed into the same Google account on both devices.

The answer to your question is:

YES.

When you enter your GMail account to your Tab, all your contacts will get synced into the Tab. So will your GMail. All your paid apps will be marked Purchased on the Android Market and is free to download.

Do note, that if you made any changes on your contacts in any one of these devices, the other device will reflect the same changes sooner or later. The two devices will continually sync.

If you buy apps in one device, it will also be marked "Purchased" in the Android Market of the other device and free to download.

And if you buy yet another Android device, it will be the same thing.

And again.

And again.

I should know. I keep a collection.

When apps are purchased, they belong to that Google account period.

If a device is sold, and it will have a new Google account on it, no, the apps cannot be transferred to the new owner. It will have to do a clean reset to a blank slate. The new owner will then enter his or her Google account, which opens up his or her paid apps from the Android Market. And the same process repeats over again.
