What will happen to my android apps if my device is replaced? Published on October 30, 2012
Last month my beloved Sony Tablet S suffered a “little” accident and the screen got broken.
I had it insured so I returned it to the shop.
There was a distinct possibility of the device being replaced other then repaired. That was fine by me with an exception:
- Will I loose all the apps I’d bought trough google play?
This was a legit concern since this was the first time it had happened to me, and my first thoughts where that probably apps are assigned to devices, and thus the apps i’d bought where assigned to the “broken tablet” and I could not re-install them in the “new device”!

So far the most common method, was to use the -9999px left-margin, but this had a few drawbacks, since it had to “draw” a huge 9999px box offscreen.
This new “recipe” is cleaner and dramatically improves performance when compared to the old -9999px method.
So this is the code to use:
This method was discovered, apparently, by Scott Kellum, design director at Treesaver, and published in www.zeldman.com/2012/03/01/replacing-the-9999px-hack-new-image-replacement/ where you can read some more about it.
