    Android apps purchased from Amazon will work on multiple devices, use Amazon DRM



    Android applications purchased in Amazon's app store (which may finally go live to consumers any time now) will use Amazon's special sauce of digital locker/digital rights management to help combat piracy. Amazon spells it out in its developer blog:

    Customers who purchase an app will retain an entitlement to their app even if they decide to replace their current Android device and/or purchase new devices, as long as the new devices meet the installation requirements of the app. This provides insurance to customers that their purchased apps will be available for use on all supported devices, even if the customer has uninstalled or otherwise removed those apps in the past.

    I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available. If you try it once, you will die.

    It's nice to know that if you buy something, you'll be able to keep it no matter if you upgrade your phone. Especially if you didn't back it up for some reason.
    iPhone -> iPhone 3 -> iPhone 3GS -> iPhone 4 -> Atrix.

    Anyone looking for a like new Panasonic ToughBook laptop?

    Att rep said it was the same with the market

    Sent from my atrix with tapa talk
    1- Use the search function before asking a question--it takes away from new questions to have the same ones pop up over and over.
    2- ROMS
    3-
    HACKS
    4- THEMES
    5- To root 8.3 go HERE
    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over

    Hehe... probably a good policy. BUT, in this case they were right.

    As long as you sign in to your same Google account that purchased the app in the first place you will be able to download it again. Beware, it will not operate on two phones at once. Your Google account can only be active on one phone at a time. Have to have a separate Google account for each Android phone you keep active. Same thing goes for using a Android tablet like the Xoom.

    Yes, the market behaves the same way. All my purchased apps were available to me when I got my Atrix. In fact, they automatically installed too!

    Edit: lol wow, you beat me to it :P
