Aren't the non-free apps digitally signed to your device? Or maybe linked to your phone's unique IMEA number?

It seems to work the same as sharing music--i.e. Whatever computer you authorize (up to 5) can access/sync those files. My husband and I have been sharing all our paid apps without a problem, just by copying them to the other comp's desktop then dragging them into iTunes.

My wife and I both use the same copy of iTunes for both of our phones. Yesterday I downloaded Texas Holdem and installed it, then I plugged her phone in expecting to buy it for her also but it was already in the app list. So we got two for the price of one, pretty sweet. Great multiplayer game for the LAN btw, best $5 I've spent in a long time.
