    Not sure if this was already mentioned, but it looks like you can now "hide" apps from your purchased section in the iTunes store. If you open up iTunes and go to purchases and hover your mouse over an application you should see a faint X on the upper left corner. This doesn't permanently get rid of it, but you will need to go into your account settings and unhide it if you want to see it again. Good way to get rid of all of those free trials you downloaded.

    Sorry, a bit off topic. But now the iTunes store recognizes the left/right swipe to go back and forward on pages when using a trackpad. That was unavailable in the previous version that really annoyed me.

    This also applies to other content in the itunes store as well as in the mac app store. You can remove download applications.

    You can also do this on the app store. Just swipe right and the hide button will appear. Very happy Apple included this feature!
