    I'm thinking of buying a used iPhone, and have found a seller who is advertising his as including the TomTom app. But it occurred to me: aren't apps tied to your iTunes account? I.e., if I ever have to reset or restore this iPhone, wouldn't I lose any of those apps that he installed? Is there any way to transfer the purchases to MY iTunes account?

    You are correct, apps are tied to iTunes accounts. You would never be able to update TomTom and if you ever needed to restore as new phone, TomTom would be gone. I wouldn't buy from this guy... he's trying to be sneaky.

    And no, you cannot transfer purchases to another iTunes account.
