    If I buy an app in the Amazon Appstore, say... SetCPU, will the normal Android Market know that I have bought the app?

    I've gotten that free 2 dollar credit from Twitter for the Amazon Appstore, that's why I'm asking.

    Please excuse my ignorance. I've done a bit of searching, but haven't found an answer to this particular question, even with my mad Google Skillz.

    No, only the amazon market will know you bought it... Also you have to keep amazon market installed to use the Apps you get from there.

    Found him! :D

    Danaj is right though, both Markets don't know what you've downloaded and installed from the other.

    Well, that kinda sucks. I'm not in a position to buy apps, so this $2 is a chance to buy at least one, but the apps on the Appstore are frequently outdated. SetCPU is at least 3 versions behind.

    My Market on my Evo 3d didnt recognize the apps I downloaded from the Appstore at first, but after I downloaded the new Market apk everything I got from the Appstore shows up on my list of installed apps just like the apps I downloaded directly from the Android Market. I dont know if the apps are recognized when its time to upgrade, but Executive Assistant+, Widgetlocker and others are listed as installed with the option to [Open Uninstall] when I view them from the Market on my device just like all my other apps.
