    how do I get my apps that I purchased into itunes after I did a clean install on my hard drive?

    It told me when I tried to sync that it would delete the apps from my iphone and install what I had on my laptop, which is nothing.

    the way i resolved this when i changed over from a pc to a mac was just buying them again. as long as the store knows you bought it, and you buy it from your iphone, it will consider it a free update and give you the application. Not the best solution, but it works.

    i figured it out, if you go to file, transfers purchases from iphone or something, it should work.

    I ran into the same issue. I believe what I did was made sure that the "Mobile Applications" folder was in my iTunes folder and then I did File > "Add to Library".

    I believe this fixed it, but if it didn't for you I may have done something else that I don't recall at this moment (which is entirely possible). Let me know.
