    I don't know if this will be a double post or not. I have two Android phones. A Bionic and an S3. I bought an app and installed it on my Bionic. After speaking with the App developer, I was told that if I logged onto the S3 and then logged into Google Play using my google account rather than the one on the S3, that I would be able to d/l the app to the S3 without having to pay for the app again. I am unable to see anywhere on the S3 where I can change the google play login to the same google account that is on my Bionic.

    You need to add the Google Account to the S3 using Settings -> Add Account -> Google.

    That should then allow you to download apps you've paid for on both devices. :)

    The SAME Google account.

    I have 2 gmail addies. Only one would work as that is the one Google recognizes and bills to if I buy an app.

    I added the goggle account to her phone but when I go into google play to d/l the app, It shows that I need to buy it again.

    OK, open Play, then hit menu, then accounts. Can you select the new account from there?

    I solved my issue. I was using a different Google account when I bought it the first time.

    Thanks
