    just wondering how buying an app works, does it only install once? what if i root my phone, will i still be able to install it again?

    i don't have an android phone so i'm quite clueless :/

    I would like to know this also, as I'm considering replacing my iPhone 3GS with a HTC Wildfire.

    It will be available to be installed sitting in the Market waiting for you on whatever phone you have as long as you use the same email address on the phone as the one you bought the app on.

    Nice. I didn't doubt this though, since not having that function would be rather stupid.
