    So I downloaded some apps that are paid from amazon and then I got a new phone. How do I get those apps I paid for on my new phone:thinking: I still have the email conformation that says I bought them. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi

    The apps are linked to your gmail account so as long as you link your new phone to that same gmail account your apps will be waiting in Market in "my apps" for you to re-download.

    Gg

    APOLOGIES: Just noticed you said Amazon not Market so this doesn't work for you :(

    All you should have to do is download Amazon appstore to your new phone and log in with the same email and password as the old phone and the apps should be there to download in the "my apps" section.

    Well that didnt work. Maybe because I bought the apps through my computer and had them instantly sent to my phone? I dont know?

    You would think that there would be a way to "resend" The app to your phone when you buy it from amazon.

    Hmmm .. in theory it should work as it's all cloud technology. Fingers crossed someone else may have had a similar issue and can help you resolve.

    When you go to My Apps in the Amazon Store, you should just be able to go to 'ALL', then click "install" to get them back. That's how I did it.

    No, the apps you get from Amazon are separate from the ones you get from the market. If you download them from one place you can't re-download or update from the other.
