Sorry, I want to be clear.

If I buy the Pages app for my macbook w/Lion, do I have to buy it for my imac w/Lion, or do I get to redownload it and share it with both?

    if you buy the app in Lions appstore you can transfer it to your other Mac,too, provided it runs the same OS and handles the app well enough.

     

    See the fine print for legal issues.

     

    But - because you were asking in a different topic about icloud and documents :

     

    Fair warning : iwork for Mac is not icloud enabled, just a warning before you follow the hype of wanting to "sync your documents"... Mac does not sync office files, only iOS does this.

     

    It is a manual upload via Safari. So it is no matter if you use iwork,msoffice or openoffice to create files. Just any app that can create doc,docx,xls,xlsx,ppt,pptx and such.

     

    However you must buy the iwork apps on your iDevice : Without them you cannot upload anything in the safari iwork section at icloud.com, you will see advertising only if you don't own the mobile apps.

    According to this:

     

    If you are an individual acting in your personal capacity, you may download and use an application from the Mac App Store (“Mac App Store Product”) for personal, non-commercial use on any Apple-branded products running Mac OS X (“Mac Computer”) that you own or control.

     

    you should be able to use it on both machines (unless you are buying the iOS version - then you'd have to buy the regular version for Mac OS as well).

    His intention is the "document in the cloud" stuff and to put office files on the icloud. But without purchasing the mobile apps he wont profit from pages on the Mac, cause there is zero sync.

     

    The upload to browser will only be activated once the iOS apps are present.

     

    Sorry, but I saw so many people purchasing only the Mac versions and they sit and wonder about the "magic sync" or "where is the "drag and drop" feature to the icloud ? ..

     

    And he wrote in other posts that he wants the icloud things in pages and co..

    Okay - I was not aware of the other posts..... and yes, the expectations for iCloud far exceed its' capabilities.

    you buy the wanted app on Mac No.1 in MacAppStore.

     

    Log in to mac No2 onto MacAppStore with the same Apple-ID you used on MacAppStore on MAc No1 and then yes, it will be in your "purchased" list and can be re-downloaded.

     

    You can also just copy the app from one to the other Mac if both are yours.

     

    the software is tied to your Apple-ID, not to a specific machine.

    You're not supposed to see the moon (or anything else) considering what time it is where you are.....

     

    Seriously, I'm guessing the OP had to change the name since it was a complete email address which is not allowed.

    Your documents from Mac OS X Lion and pages on it wont "push" anywhere, not to icloud and not to the other Mac.

     

    iwork / pages for Mac OS X has NO ICLOUD FEATURES. ONLY THE IOS5 VERSIONS HAVE.

    The iOS version works on iOS devices (NOT computers).

     

    The regular Mac OS version works on Mac computers.

     

    iCloud is mostly for pushing your purchased iTunes content (music and video) to all your devices. It has very limited functionality as a regular syncing app; from a Mac, you have to access iCloud on icloud.com.
