    i dont know if there is a way to sync applications to all devices at once? the reason is that some application will not be compatible and sometime license restrivtions (not to install to more tha X devices!) you can use backup tool like Titanium backup, do a backup of applications and transfer to other device. If you are root possibly there is an application to do this sync from google play.

    from your android device you can go here
    https://play.google.com/apps
    and install desired applications.

    •If you have multiple devices, you can install the app on all of your devices without purchasing the app again

    We recently made a change to our device policy for music on Google Play. Any user can associate up to 10 devices to his or her account. Once you have connected 10 devices, you may add a new device only by deauthorizing an existing one from your account, and you may do this up to four times per year.

    In some cases, you might want your Policy to limit the number of actual devices that are permitted to use a single license.
