    Is it possible to delete Apps from iCloud? I have a bunch on there I don't want to redownload, and would rather just wipe them out for good. So that way, when I go to redownload apps at a later date, those would not redownload.

    There is no cloud storage. There is only your purchased history list. I doubt you can delete the items on the list. A lot of people have also request merging of the two Apple ID's (with two separate purchased lists), which is actually a lot easier than removing items from the list.

    Yeah, Apple really needs to tweak the purchased apps feature. On mine there is probably about 20-30 'lite' and 'free' apps that I've since bought the full versions of, and also about another 30 apps that were so rubbish that I'll never want to download them again. It's a new feature though, so I'm sure they'll introduce some sort of editing system in the months to come :)

    Merge two accounts

    People have requested merging two Apple ID's but has anyone been successful? If so, how, because Apple Support won't do it....

    Whatever you have purchased from Apple, will always be there. Just don't DL what you don't want, simple.

    Apple just keeps a cache of what you purchased... you are not storing apps because apple already has them.

    I doubt there will be any kind of editing system, your purchase history is YOUR purchase history, giving you the ability to edit what you've bought would be like giving you a stack of receipts and a bottle of white out.

    One simple button to change the view from "complete history" to "things I don't regret downloading". Same button in TV Shows and Music please. I'm ridiculously picky and I still have a few dozen crappers in there. I can only imagine what some of your purchased lists look like.

    i hope there isnt a way to delete them, because what if I delete an app that I want later on?

    Totally deleting them doesn't seem to be the best idea, but "smart list" views would be very useful. Think about the poor person downloading every possible free lite trial version available. Granted, they get what they deserve or whatnot, but this eternal trail is making me think twice before trying free apps, songs, or shows.

    You can remove the apps but it is better not to delete it permanently. Although, all the apps are being stored on iCloud server associated with your history and cache, But it is better not to pull its leg :D


    According to what i have experienced, apple store all the apps with your account so whether you install or uninstall it you can get it again whenever you wishes too...
