Will any apps I buy on my V1 now transfer over to the 3G when I buy it?

title says it all.

there are some apps I want to buy now, but I want to make sure I won't have to rebuy them for the 3G when I get it.

I think as long as it's on your iTunes you'll be fine. It's just like putting purchased music on different iPods.

I can confirm it works. Just download the app onto your v1, sync and the app will appear in your iTunes. Then when you upgrade to the 3G, do a restore from back up and the 3G has everything your v1 had. It was a really easy and pain free process going from the v1 to the 3G. Just takes a while!

the app is locked to the iTunes account of the person who purchased it, not the iPhone, or computrer it was purchased on. So, if you hook up multiple iPhones t the same computer, as long as they are authorized, you can put it on other iPhones, 3g or not.
