    I've searched the net and can't find an answer to this:

    If I use the same Gmail account on multiple devices, thus the same Google Play details, what happens if I uninstall an app from a the second device where it was installed after already being installed on the first device?

    How does Google Play deal with this when the app is still present on the other device?

    Let me try again. I didn't write that first post very well.

    If I use the same Google account on the Xoom as on my HTC Desire, thus the same Google Play details, what happens to an app's status on Google Play if I uninstall an app on the Xoom, but it remains on the Desire? Will it still show as 'installed' if I view My Apps on Google Play on the Desire and therefore still receive updates on this device and vice versa?

    Yes it will. I've had no problems with a Galaxy Nexus and Transformer e.g. I still get updates for Facebook on the phone after uninstalling from the tablet.

    It's not a problem. They are two separate devices, and treated as such by Google. The "My Apps" listing in Play is unique to the device. If you uninstall an app on the Xoom, it will no longer appear in the "My Apps" list on that device, but the Desire will be unaffected and continue to receive updates if you have that feature enabled.
