The company I'm contracting for has a windows and a companion Android app. They are working a deal with a large computer manufacturer who would pre-install the windows app on system, and wanted a free "license" for someone to use the companion Android app. BUT, if someone did not have one of these pre-installed system, they would have to pay for the Android app.

So, my question is, is it allowed to have a paid and free app, where the free app will not work unless the user has a "license"? (I'm assuming we would have to implement the licensing code.)

My concern is more about the Google Play terms.  Would we be rejected if we did such a thing?

It gets a bit fuzzy. Non functional free apps, I believe are disallowed.  However, I know apps are allowed such as the xbox remote that obviously will only work if you have an xbox.
