    I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to automatically sync Play Store applications across multiple devices. In other words, I have a Nexus 7, TPad, LG Connect (work phone) and then I also switch between a GNex and Rezound (personal phone).

    Is there anyway that if I download an app from one device that the app will also automatically be pushed/downloaded on the other devices?

    It is a real pain to have to remember to go to each other device and download the app, and even worse when I switch between handsets that may not have been used for several week.

    Any ideas?

    There isn't a way to sync all devices across but there is an easier way to push apps to all device.

    Go here https://play.google.com/apps and login with google account

    search for the app-->Click [Install/Installed]-->[select device]-->Install

    I use to update my tablet at home using this from work.

    yeah but when you use multiple devices this seems like a pain, plus I think this is somethingn that should def be included in the play store that works from your handset. its the little things like this that google seems to leave out.

    That would be a nice addition but i agree it a little pain but not a deal breaker i guess...
    hopefully we see this in future play release.

    It definitely would be a nice option to have, though personally other than Nova Launcher, I don't think I've downloaded any of the same Apps or Games to both my GNex AND my N7. If so, they're the separate phone & tablet versions (like SwiftKey for example).
    I use my phone for stuff and my tablet for completely other stuff.

    I recently read an article over at XDA about an app called appsync. It's available in the play store for rooted devices. It allows you to sync apps and data between devices on the same lan network. It might be worth checking out.

    1) You're probably one of the few people who wants the same apps on many devices.

    2) Not all apps will install on all devices. That's why Google requires that you specify the device you want to install the app on.

    3) When you install a new app, select each device in turn, and click Install. (This may only work from a browser, not from the Play app.) When you turn a phone on, the app will install.

    I disagree, Rukbat. I think a lot of people would like their apps sync'd across multiple devices, particularly their purchased apps.

    What I think would be good is if you could mark the devices (select all or select multiple) you wish to install the app on via a checkbox type option within google play.

    A good use for such a feature is when one device breaks and you buy a second one to replace it. This is what happened to my Asus MeMo tablet.
