Do I have to purchase this twice to install it on multiple devices?

If all of your devices are associated with the same app store account, you can buy once and install the app on multiple devices. However, if your devices are associated with different accounts, each of those accounts will need to purchase the app in order to download.

If you are purchasing for different types of devices, you would need to purchase for each type of device. One app store purchase cannot transfer to another app store. For example if you purchase for iPad, you will need to purchase again for Android.

Troubleshooting

One of the features isn't working for me:
First, double-check that you have the latest version of the app downloaded. If your device is not set to automatically update apps, you will need to update the Homophone Machine app from the app store on your tablet. If that doesn't fix the issue, please contact us at [email protected]. We'll work with you to get this resolved!

Other App Questions

No, after the initial download, you won't need internet to use the app.
