ignore current user?

hi, is it possible to ignore the current user? i have an app with a number of purchased items (entitlements). no matter who is logged in, they should be able to use the app and any entitlements that were purchased by any user of the app (on this device) - i created a common shared preference file which stores the entitlements and am now wondering if this is a problem (or could be). appreciate some guidance here - whether it's ok to do this or should i go with a preference file for each user? thanks regards 101apps

Hi 101apps, Unfortunately this is not doable. First of all the app would not eve start gracefully if any other user tries to launch it than the one who bought the app. So you buy an app (free or paid) from Amazon App Store and deregister the device (kindle or non Amazon) and register with another account - you would even launch the app gracefully and you should face a popup saying that you do not own this app. For IAP, every transaction is considered based on App (the unique package name) and the user who is logged in to the store.
