Can iOS apps be used on multiple devices?

For personal use, apps can be installed on all the devices an end user owns. On the App Store in iTunes, apps will be tied to the iTunes account you make the purchase from. If you own multiple devices, for example, an iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, you can sync all the devices to a computer with the app and use it on your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

For professional and academic use, if there are devices used by multiple users, you need to buy one license of an app per device. If a single user uses one or more devices, you need to buy one license per user.

For more information on licensing, please see: License and purchasing questions

Note that as you can only sync a device to one computer, apps will get removed from the device if you subsequently sync the device to a different computer. To put them back, you would need to sync again to the original computer you made the purchase from.
