    Hi,

    Both my husband and I just got iphones on friday (soo in love!!). My question is this. I have a mobileme and both of our macbooks are hooked up to my itunes account and I set up both iphones like this as well. It didn't make sense to me to bother with new one since the $$ comes from the same bank account. So i would like to know if there is a way to share our paid apps? For example a few gaming apps that allow us to play together on our wifi, but of course I only want to buy them once if at all possible.

    Any other couples sharing an itunes account (on 2 separate macs and iphones) figured this out?

    Thanks in advance:apple:

    Yes.

    My wife and I share the same iTunes account so when I purchase an app, it's available to her at no cost. You still have to go through the process of 'purchasing' the app but when it starts to download to your machine an alert window will pop up and tell you it's already been purchased.

    I share apps on 4 different phones. No issues.

    The downloaded app will sync because both phones have the same itunes credentials.

    Thanks. This will apply even if I use 2 different MacBooks to sync them with pics and such?

    It should work, you are allowed to have up to 5 computers synced with your iTunes account.
