I purchased several kindle fire hds for my children for christmas and linked them to my account. Can I purchase an app once and then load it onto each kindle or do I have to purchase the app each time from each child's kindle? The same goes with the free apps. One of my daughters can get the my little pony app onto her kindle but my other daughter cannot. They both have the kindle fire hd 7.

Have you done a sync on the second Fire? Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the Sync button.
After the sync to update the cloud list from the Amazon servers tap on the Apps tab and then Cloud. Sort by recent and the app should be at the top of the list. Tap on the app to download and install on the device. Tap on the Device option to return to viewing only apps that are downloaded and installed.

only one purchase is necessary. You can download the app to another Fire on the same account by going to Apps > Cloud > tap app icon.

I have this same issue. Two kindle's for christmas under one prime account. Purchase apps under one device but can see it in the cloud on the other device. When you try to purchase it again, it says you already own it. I tried the sync idea but that did not work for me. I turned off the one device and restarted and uninstalled on the first device and then downloaded it to both devices at the same time. Not sure which part of that was the trick but it worked for two different apps.
