    As the topic said. Is it possible to share an app that someone bought from iTunes?

    As I understand it you can, but it's a real pain, especially when you add more users or updates as you (correct me if you know better than I do here) have to regenerate the certificate used to sign the app each and every time.

    So doable...yes.
    Practical...not by a long shot.

    If you authorise the other PC with your account, they can download all the apps, or as me and my friend did, we copied the file, then authorized, but i assume downloading would work aswell.

    There's always SSH. But I'm not sure if it would work. And I'm guessing that'd be piracy.

    I felt that it's waste of money to pay 5 (5 people in my family uses iPhone) times for a app that one of us bought from iTunes.

    If you all had the same iTunes account you could do it no problem.

    My girlfriend and I use the same apps, as she does not have an iTunes account, whilst I do (and I paid for the phone). So my iTunes account is on both our phones and it works just fine.
