With more than one device it will come useful to have an option to install apps to another/the other device from within the store.

App's pulley-menu could have an option Install to other devices which then opens a device-list that of registered to the current account devices and you would be able to tap each device to install this application to. A pulley item could have Install to all devices.

Should this be a multiple selection choise? If you have two phones and a tablet and want to install the App just for the two phones. I get the idea of installing to an individual device, but why not expand it so that you could select 1 - n devices to install to. :)

The request asks to install to $device, that includes all devices on an account, also note more than one device and not two devices also another/the other - everything is written for i++ devices.

Must be a language barrier/comprehension thing. I understood the request install apps to another/the other device as please select a device to install this and that. And what I ment was please select all devices to install this and that. So you could select devices A and B, or A and C, not A or B or C or from A to C.

Please select a device? You are in an app-details-page, you pull the pulley-menu to Install to other devices -> new page for selecting devices... so you want an option to either select multiple devices and an option to select all devices... that is actually something I did not think about as for me it is the same, a list of for example 3 devices are 3 taps to install on all of them so an option like Install to all in a pulley-menu is just overkill, do-something-for-all-entries items are for long lists and stuff.

But, a Jolla-Account setting could replace this with having Install apps to all devices set as global value. This is getting to complicated for my request... and I think the remote managed store like gPlay is doing is already requested.

If you are looking for company managed devices where you want all employees to have an app installed, that is not what I am on about.
