I've already paid for the DLC on my Android device but recently got an iPad. Is there a way to get that content again other than paying for it twice?

No, unfortunately. I wish FFG would use a shared login across platforms that tracks purchases.

But it works across the same platform with different devices, right?

I have an Android phone and an Android tablet and I was wondering about that. Should be linked to my Google Play account, no?

It is free on Amazon, but that may be due to my prime membership. But is this app the standard MoM game app? I downloaded it for free from Google apps, just search for Mansions of Madness.

The app is a free download for everyone (or in a real sense, you paid for it when you bought the game) because the game is completely unplayable without it. However there is additional content (a couple extra scenarios) that are only unlocked when you buy them. It's the paid DLC they are referring to.

Yeah, looks like FFG have decided to skip any attempt at multi-platform for their apps sadly.

So it's Steam, Google Play or Apple store only - take your choice.

Sadly, I'm a multi-platform gamer, so the single platform lock-in makes the DLC less attractive for me. I strongly doubt FFG will chance their strategy here though, so I'm waivering on if I should invest more in game - the cost per scenario is rather high as it is, without needing to buy DLC multiple times to have it available to play in the various platforms I play with.

Yes, that's correct

My solution to this problem was to get an Android emulator on my PC. Since the DLCs are accessible if you download the app from the Google Play account where you bought them, I play them on all my devices.
