I posted this in a thread in the webOS app section but I'm afraid it will get lost in all the non-TouchPad news. Really this question is specific to TouchPad so I think I should post it here instead.
Here's my situation:
My wife and I each have a Touchpad. When I got the Touchpads, I created her a WebOS account, and I created a separate one for me. As I consider buying paid apps, it occurs to me that perhaps this hasn't been a wise decision -- I now have to buy each application twice, if I want them on both TouchPads. I am considering wiping hers clean and putting my HP WebOS account on both Touchpads.
I would like to ask people's advice in this situation. Please focus on Pro's and Con's.
So far this is what I understand:
Can buy each app once instead of twice. (Is it easy to load previously purchased apps on a second TouchPad?)
If I use a backup utility, it might not be able to preserve the settings from both TouchPads. (On a separate note, I'm not even sure how to backup anyways...)
Any other points I should consider? Is there an official HP policy on multiple TouchPads using the same WebOS account?
Another scenario: My retired parents now each have a TouchPad. They will probably use their TouchPads to play games and read books; nothing really heavy I wouldn't think. Does this situation warrant a different answer than the above?
Thanks all in advance for any advice you can offer.
