    With the pending OTA OS update around the corner how do I make sure that I don't loose my app purchases?

    I am new to this Droid before I had a Blackberry and they had the DM as well as programs that let me backup my device to my PC.
    Additionally you could just go back to the developer or Mobihand and re-download the purchase.
    But I don't see anywhere like a web site where I can choose to re-download if I wipe my device.

    I assume that when I re-flash the OS its going to wipe the Droid.

    Can anyone advise so that I don't loose everything as to how its don't here in the land of Android?

    In my experience I haven't had any problems with re-downloading apps that I purchased. On my second Droid now and when I got it, once I entered my GMail username and password, all contacts and apps were downloaded within minutes of signing in. Probably the most impressive thing I've seen from this phone so far.

    The marketplace should have it backed up to your account ... just login and bam everything syncs.

    Yea that feature is pretty cool. I also got a replacement droid and was pleasantly surprised to see my apps restored. You could also get backmeup pro which lets you backup your apps/contacts/settings onto the SD card (or online for contacts).

    Yup...you have to hand it to the coders at the mother ship. They really thought about situations like this, and made sure the phone synced with the cloud, rather than a PC. That way, once everything is rebooted, it simply grabs what it's missing, and reinstalls it. Pretty cool.
