    I bought alot of tweaks and themes last year. I am wondering if it is okay to install the paid tweaks and themes on more than 1 device.

    I have an iPhone 7 Plus, iPad Pro and my wife's iPhone 6s.

    Just wondering if it is possible or do I have to buy the tweaks and themes for the other devices?

    I've done it...logged in thru Google and paid via PayPal. Logging into the same Google account on different device showed the tweaks as paid. Could possibly depend on the tweak, though.

    I thought of doing the same but was worried that on my main device I may have the problem of not having the tweak to work.

    So may be best to install the tweak on my own phone and then try it on my iPad and then my wife's phone.

    I have bought many tweaks and themes. He he.

    So you are saying that you have used the same paid tweaks / themes on more than 1 device?

    It is no different to buying an app in the App Store. You can use them on as many devices as you want as long as the device and tweak are compatible.

    Your paid tweaks/themes are linked by Cydia account, not device.
    I have 4 devices linked to mine.

    You mean as long as I use the same user ID in Cydia from which I bought all the tweaks, I should be able to install the tweaks / themes on more than 1 device?

    Most paid tweaks can be installed on many devices. However, there are exceptions with device-tied licenses; for example, Audio Recorder. With these tweak,s you must purchase (from inside Settings; NOT Cydia) purchase a separate license for all your devices.

    Furthermore, for example AirBlue Sharing had a 5-device-activation restriction.

    iArrays is another example. They REQUIRE a license purchased for each device. Their license is based on the product and the serial number of your device.

    It also means that if you change your device, as in a replacement or upgrade, you have to submit your new serial number through their support system. If you buy anything at all from iArrays I highly suggest keeping every email they send you. They will refer to a code they send you on your initial purchase email when you transfer a license - even if that's two or three years (or more) later.

    I've had to move licenses with them three times now.

    Some devs do allow you to have multiple devices on the same license though. iFile and iCleaner Pro are examples.

    The only app that I've come across that couldn't be installed on any device I have with just one purchase was iBlacklist. That requires a purchase for every phone.
