- I have a TomTom application that was on 5 devices (maximum allowed)
- One of the devices (let's call it D-Vice) breaks/gets lost
- How do I transfer the license from D-Vice to a new device?
The device limit applies only for those devices where "Automatic Downloads" or iTunes Match are turned on.
Snippet from iLounge on "More than five family devices sharing a single iTunes account":
If you wish to remove the broken or lost device from your account (to avoid issues in the future with respect to other content or automatic downloads), follow Apple's instructions for Removing an associated device or computer from an Apple ID:
You may be confusing the limit of 5 devices that can automatically download new purchases with the ability to sign in and download a past purchase.
You can simply sign in to the App Store on the new device, navigate to purchases and re-download TomTom.
The current terms of service do not limit personal use of apps on multiple devices. You should read the license if you are using the software commercially where the terms specify one license per device or one license per person, but the enforcement is social and not technical. The store doesn't ask when you sign in whether you are licensing something personally or professionally.
