    Well, since my other thread got locked, I'm to ask my question differently.

    Let's say I buy five apps on my iTunes account, bob@msn.com (just for demonstrative purposes) and they download to my iTunes. Now, on the same computer, I log in on my friend's iTunes account, joe@msn.com, and buy five more apps. On my app list, it shows all 10 apps.

    However, do I need to be logged into each of these accounts as I sync the five apps for each? Or is it like, once you downloaded, they're yours no matter what? Thanks!

    EDIT: Btw, I don't have my iPod yet, or else I would test this myself.

    you would probably have to keep autorizing and deotherizing the computer each time you wanted to use your friends apps. could get annoying. im not sure tho.

    Your computer needs to be authorized to use your friend's iTunes account, although this typically applies to music purchases, not Firmware 2.0 purchases or application purchases as they are protected by DRM and belong to your iTunes & iPod touch only.
