    So I have two iTunes acounts one I use for my iPhone at work and one at home for my ipod touch.

    So I don't want to pay twice for an app in order to use it on both devices. When I buy music and want it on my other account I burn it to a CD to remove the DRM and load it to a portable HD and take it to work or home.
    Nothing wrong with that I payed for it. I can do with it as I like and I want to do the same with my apps. I spent over $150 in the appstore no way I'm buying them again.

    Unfortnatly my burner is broken and I can't try it to see if it works with apps.
    So anyone know how to do it.

    Please don't ban me. This is a legit reason to want to remove it and is not illegal or against rules.

    authorize both machines on the same account, then sych.
    there's no real need to use two different accounts, unless they're on different credit cards.

    If I athorize and sync with the other acount then I loss the music and apps purchased on that account and they are both on different cards.

    Basicly I bought the iPhone on my lunch break and could not remember my password for that account. I was in a hurry to use my new toy and created a new account.

    Now let's say those accounts are closed and I start a new one. With the music I'm good I can remove the DRM and they work with the new account. How can I do it with apps.

    That's devotion to developers. Apple can suck it. It also a huge waste of money :/

    I know

    but I'm not trying to steal apps. I want to get the ones I payed for to work on both accounts and for everyone else who needs to know for these reasons to know too.

    Actually, you can't download apps from there and get them to work yet.

    what if I created a new folder and opened up the app. Then moved the contents of that app to the new folder and renamed the folder to the name of the app or does the DRM run dealer then that.

    I can't test it becouse I'm not near my copmuter.
