    I currently have a Droid 1 and I will be receiving a Droid 2 in the next few days. Is there a way I can transfer apps that I have previously paid for to the new phone? If so .....how?

    well they're tied to your gmail account, so i would think that as long as you used the same gmail account to sign into your new phone and those apps are compatible with that phone they should download right to it. I would think

    Yeah, your apps are backed up in the cloud. They *should* download after the initial sign in.

    If they don't download, they are still attached to ylyour Google account, so all you'll need to do is go into the market abd redownload them, or if your rooted, backup your apps with Titanium backup, once you get your D2, root it, and restore.

    Not all apps, most paid apps are private and you can't back those up with astro, also Astro does not save data from your apps. So let's say your a long way into Angry Birds, with Titanium you can pick up where you left off, with Astro, you'd have to start all over.

    yeah I know that...just if the market place does not acknowledge the ones that he has downloaded he can use astro. When switching between roms, the marketplace has always acknowledged any apps that I have paid for, but not all of the free apps have been automatically restored. That was before I did the whole TiBu thing....
