    Quick question....

    If I buy the Infinity, will my apps (including my paid apps) upload to the tablet once I log in with my gmail account?

    Or do I have to re-buy my apps?

    Thanks in advance for the info.

    Yep, they are all yours. Any app paid for or not will be available to you once you log in with your gmail.

    If any are not compatible with your device it will say so.

    If it's not compatible, it just won't show up in Google Play, even if you paid for it with a previous device.

    Hmm actually if you go to Google Play and then Your Apps and click on All every App you have ever installed should be there however when you click on it it may say Not Compatible with your Device.

    Hi this is a bit of topic but does anyone know how many devices you can install a paid for app on. I have a tfi a hox and my 2 of my sons have galaxy wifi's. I can install paid for apps on all devices as they all use my google account. Just wondering if there is limit.

    To my knowledge there is not a limit, as long as the devices are all using the same Google account, as yours are.
    I've had the same app on a Nook Color, DInc, Razr and TF700 with no problems.

    Do you know if this is Google Store policy?

    I own a lot of PC apps that have widely differing license terms when it comes to use on multiple machines. Some insist that I purchase a separate license for each and every machine, even if they're all mine. Others allow me to install on all of my personal (but not work) machines, but say I can have only one instance running at a time. Still others allow me to use their product on a set number of machines (usually 5) with a single license. It all seems to be up to the software author and/or publisher.

    I'm curious if software authors are required to accept Google's boilerplate TOS in order to get published, or if it's just a coincidence.
