What happens if I delete an app I purchased and want to download it again?
If I go back and purchase it again, do I get charged again?



Also,

If I get an app while its free, so i've "purchased it", then delete the app file, then want the program again.. if I go throught and purchase that program, will I get charged for that too even if ive had it previously?


Cheers

Purchases are tied in to your account. So once you've bought it you can download it to that account as often as you need to, unless the company/author decides to charge for a newer version.

The same should apply for freebies. The first time you download it you own the rights, so to speak, to download it again. The system should only be looking to see if you've downloaded it previously, rather than what the cost was/is.

To re-download something you've purchased open iTunes and click "Store" at the top, then click "Check for Available Downloads" and you'll get it again for no charge.

Hope I helped.

I've always just clicked on it to re-download it but have never been charged for something I had previously bought with the same account.

If you re-navigate to the same app and try to re-buy it, you'll get a notice saying that you've already purchased it and won't be charged. If you don't get this notice then the dev may have relisted it as a new app, so the system won't notice that you've already downloaded it.

It *may* be possible to download from your account history page, but I've never tried.

You won't get charged for purchased (either full or lite) iPhone Apps. If you have bought them on the device itself, and you delete it before transfer-sync to iTunes on PC, then you will have to go to the App Store and "purchase" the same app but you won't get double-charged.

If you have synced, just do update on the iTunes library and it should detect new version.

I might just have to try it.. This is the message I get when seeing if there is anything to download.



So we'll see I guess..
Will try shortly.
