Hi all

My wife and I will be sharing my nexus 7 :-( that is why she let me have one lol. Any way, have set her own profile up so she can access her own Google account. The only issue I see with this is that if we both have the same app, it will have to be downloaded twice, using twice the memory. Is this correct?

According to Jelly Bean | Android Developers:

Users can install and uninstall apps at any time in their own environments. To save storage space, Google Play downloads an APK only if it's not already installed by another user on the device. If the app is already installed, Google Play records the new user's installation in the usual way but doesn't download another copy of the app. Multiple users can run the same copy of an APK because the system creates a new instance for each user, including a user-specific data directory.
