    Default How to re-d/l an app you already paid for?
    Hey guys, I d/led an app, forgot that I had it on there, and pwned my phone, then restored my settings. Of course the app wasnt on there.

    I went to install it and was hoping it would say "already installed" but I dont want to hit buy to get to that section and get double charged.

    Is there an easy way to take care of this problem?

    Thanks

    I had the same issue

    I just went ahead and clicked on the app i bought and hit "buy" again to redownload the app

    it asked me to login to my itunes account

    and once it began a message popped up saying you have already purchased this app press ok to redownload for free


    i didnt get double charged


    i hope this helps you

    HaHa ^ what he said^

    Just go back to the App store and install again. It will recognize you paid for it and let you download again for free.

    The apps are linked to your itunes account not the device itself as well

    i found this out because i have 2 iphones and an ipod touch

    i was able to buy an app and install in on all my devices through app store with my itunes login

    thats good so i dont have to buy the same app over and over for my devices

    just thought id point this out if it isnt already known
