    It's not quite clear in the user agreement what's allowed in terms of installing an app from the AppStore on multiple machines.

    " are granted a limited non-transferable license to install and use the Apple software only on Apple-branded computers that you own or control..."

    I'd like to install Aperture on my MacPro and MacBook. What do you think, will I need two licenses?

    The agreement refers to the iTunes/Appstore/iBooks usage rules, which state: (ii) You shall be authorized to use Products on five Apple-authorized devices at any time, except for Content Rentals (see below).

    So maybe I've answered my own question...:D

    Yes, you can use any of the App Store apps on all the computers you own (there's some debate about whether the 5-computer limit applies as it's tied to the Apple ID like iTunes, but it's not in the Terms and Conditions, so suspect maybe not).
