This is likely a can't-talk-about future feature, but while I've now figured out that we can actually see license keys in the My World listing for an app, and tap on them to copy then paste into an app that requires them, it would be really nice if this were something the app could do itself via an API, retrieving the license key indirectly from the App World app's service cache (where I've confirmed the key is actually recorded).
Without improved user education, most users I think would have a hard time understanding how they're supposed to get the key from My World to the app, so the initial experience right now would be very unpleasant for users and devs with any app that tried to require a key. (I threw a license pool into Battery Guru just to experiment and learn the current state of affairs, as the documentation on this for the PlayBook is entirely absent.)
Solved! Go to Solution.

Ok, checked with the devs - as of right now, there is no mechanism for allowing people to inject license keys on PlayBook. This is awesome feedback - will talk with PlayBook dev about this.
