    Often when I launch the app store it asked me to download these apps. I do not want these apps nor do I want to be reminded to download them.

    Thanks

    Isn't there some "not now" or similar option? Or does that only get rid of it just for a bit? Alternatively you can download the apps (or perhaps even simply start the download and then stop it) and then delete them and that should stop the prompts.

    You can tell it Cancel or Not Now or whatever and it won't nag you anymore. It only does it once.

    I do that every time and still get reminded almost every day.

    Strange. The only time I remember being prompted for that is when getting a new phone or restoring and setting up as new.

    Easiest way is to download them and delete them. I'm assuming you've never downloaded them to use you free purchase.

    Download and delete. If that doesn't do the trick, you'll need to speak to Apple because that should stop it from asking.

    I noticed the prompt all the rime on a jail broken device as if the AppStore token expires everyday and resends you the prompt otherwise I only see it on setup as new devices

    It happens to me too quite a lot. I have downloaded them all previously. And no I'm not jailbroken
