    If I install software on my mac under my main account it is available under a guest account for example.

    Is this the case when installing through the app store?

    What happens if 2 users both use a single mac (under different user accounts and with different app store accounts)? Are purchases made under each account visible to the other user?

    Yes, any apps installed on the computer will be available to all users of that computer. Other posters on here have confirmed that already.

    Thats what I though, but what if the second user logs in to download an app via the app store? Does it recognise that the apps purchased by user 1 were not purchased by user 2?
