So I got myself an iPad.

Can someone tell me how the DRM works for Apps?

If I buy an App for iPhone, does this also let me use the same App on the iPad if it is sync'd to the same iTunes library?

I know from reading reports on the internet that music can be shared by all devices syncing to the same library, but I couldn't find any information about Applications.

I'm not sure whether it might be more flexible for me to have a separate iTunes account specifically for the iPad or not, hence my question.

How are you doing it with an iPhone and iPad (or multiple iPhones or iPads)?

In a nutshell it'll work fine - whatever you buy will sync to both the phone and the pad. You can have multiple accounts but it's just the one library so everything in that library will sync to any compatible device that you plug in and subsequently activate for use on that computer.

Is there a limit to the number of devices? If a 5 person household has 2 devices each - 1 purchase goes for all 10 devices?

No limit. As long as they're all sharing the same library it doesn't matter how many devices you have, even if it's a mixture as well (phones, pods, pads), only the compatible stuff will go to each device.

There are some Universal apps which will work well with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
Most iPhone apps will work with the iPad even if it means doubling the pixels. 
There are also more and more iPad only Apps.
