    I picked up a 32 gig Touch last week and bought a few games from the app store. My kids are eyeing myTouch and I have a feeling that they'll ask for one for Christmas. Does the license for an app allow it to be loaded onto more than one Touch or iPhone? Or do you have to buy a separate copy for it?

    Gotta buy a seperate copy for each I think. I've never tried though, but I don't see why they'd allow it.

    Actually, you should be able to load in all all the Touches. As long as they are all using the same iTunes account.

    That's correct, as long as it's the same account it'll work.

    What you do is, purchase an app on your Touch. Then, on your kid's Touch, buy the app again. Don't worry, it won't charge you. Instead, it'll ask you for a password as always, go to the home screen, then a sign will come up saying "You have already purchased this app. Would you like to install it again for free?" Then just press ok. It's that easy.
