10.6: Using the Purchases Tab in Mac App Store
Authored by: Mac Berry on Feb 18, '11 10:09:45AM

Wow, that makes Pixelmator even better value!

Interestingly, it doesn't work with iPhoto. I wonder if all developers can decide whether or not to implement the multi-computer licence, or just Apple? The App store help suggests it should be possible with ALL apps.

It does mention one other way to get multiple copies:

"- Copy the application from one Mac to another Mac. When you open the copied application on the other Mac, enter the Apple ID used to purchase it."

I'll give that a try.

It worked! I copied iPhoto to my other Mac, and it opened without even asking for account details (I was already logged in in the App store), so it's just the ability to re-download that's missing for some apps, as per the T's and C's:

"Solely as an accommodation to you, you may re-download certain Products for use in accordance with the Usage Rules. Not all Products are eligible for this accommodation or may be available at any given time."

I missed that part of the T&C. Must've been reading too fast.
