One account, 2 Playbooks?
 
My daughter has a playbook and I'm thinking of getting my son one for Xmas. I've bought a few apps and games for my daughters playbook can i use the same account or whatever to get the same apps and games on my son's playbook?

I don't want to buy the same apps and games twice, they are already a lot more expensive on BB that the iTunes. We have iPads, touch, and have the same apps and games so hopefully BB is the same?

Is it or what is the system, what do other multiple choice playbook owners do.
Thanks

You can use the same BlackBerry ID on both PlayBooks but only one can use App World at the same time.

So I can install the same bought apps onto 2 separate playbook. What do you mean by can't use the app world at same time? Just that I couldn't log into both at same time on app world? This wouldn't be a problem as would only need to buy now and then.

Yes, I've not done it myself but I've read that when you use the same BlackBerry ID on the second PlayBook, it downloads the same apps. And you have to login with BlackBerry ID each time when switching devices.

Just be warned ... if you intend to only use the same Blackberry ID so you can install the purchased apps ... you can't change the BlackBerry ID without doing a security wipe.

Hi, i just notice that you have 9810 torch and playbook 64g. do you use bridge together? I doubt because you have 64g that already has service. Is that correct?

All PlayBooks can be used with Bridge if the hand held device has the Bridge app installed. OS 5.0 or higher is required on the phone.
You can see here what devices are compatible.
