Any way to determine what you paid for an app using the App Store program on iOS devices.

just go to your iTunes account click on purchase history and find what you are after.

Also you will receive an e-mail receipt for the app. Sometimes it may be several days later if it was just say a 99 cent one. Apple likes to wait until there are several of these before sending out the e-mail but you will eventually get one.

Maybe you should unlink your account and just use itunes gift cards instead to be safe. :D

That takes a week or two weeks.

Easiest way its to go on itunes > account > purchase history > see all
Perfect. I have some tax deductible purchases for 2011 that I needed to dig out. This will make things much easier. Thanks.

Usually when I buy an app, on the same day or the next one I receive a receipt via email of those same purchases.

Thanks for the responses - I knew I could determine this info via iTunes on my laptop, but I'd really like to get it via my iDevice. It's not "must have" but often times I'll be showing someone an app and they'll ask what it cost on the App Store.

Wouldn't they be more interested in what they'd pay for it if they got it vs. what you paid for it when you got it?

One more option is to use a site or app like http://appshopper.com -- it will give you the current app price and also historic pricing (eg so they can see if the app comes on sale and they should wait to buy).

In the interest of disclosure, appshopper is MacRumors' sister site also founded by Arn.

I also fail to understand how the current price in the App Store isn't more desirable.

Yeah, sorry, I did know this was true and neglected to mention it. I believe there are a few other similar sites and apps also. There are enough apps that go on sales frequently (and I bought enough Gameloft games for $10 that went on sale for $0.99 a couple months later) that I think they're definitely worth using.
