    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 Android 4.2 multiuser support: Hands-on impressions and gallery | Computerworld Blogs

    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...
