    Default Common apps for multiple users?

    4.2 supports multiple users. Will it be possible to install an app that is used by all users? GPS software like NAvfree + maps is over 400 Mb. Do i have to install that for each users seperatly?

    read this you will get an idea

    when two users try to install same app it is smart enough to install it only once and share between those users.

    my experience is that when i want to use NavFree, i have to download the map of 500 Mb again for each user... :-(

    The maps are application data, not part of the app itself so I can see why it would download them twice. If you are rooted, you could probably create a symlink from one user's data folder to the others...probably...
