    Hi all,

    I recently purchased my first app - DownCast on my iPhone.

    I'm traveling soon, and plan to bring my iPod touch with me instead of my Iphone for various reasons.

    Is there any way to install DownCast on my iPod touch without re-purchasing it?

    I don't need it to be installed on 2 devices at the same time, I'd just like the ability to run it on either. Obviously if I was changing phones this wouldn't be a big deal since I could just do a backup/restore, but with the iPod touch it's a little different.

    Yes, as long as both devices are signed into the same Apple ID.

    Yep, you will be just fine.
    Once you buy a lisence for an App in the App Store you are able to install it on 5 Devices at a time, so you will be fine without purchasing a new lisence.
    Go to the App Store, than to Purchases, you'll see a "Install" button for the App.
    (And you won't be purchasing it again)
    Hope this made it clear.

    Just download it again with the same account.

    You can download your apps on as many of your devices as you want :)

    In the app store go to the "Updates" tab, then at the top hit "purchases" and you can download any app you've ever bought again, for free :)

    As long as you're using the same account you won't ever be charged twice for the same app.
