    I had to restore my iPad (1st Gen) due too a problem during the last upgrade. It was backed up a number of weeks ago, and a majority of applications have been restored. However, several iPad applications have been purchased/downloaded since and I can't recall what they all were.

    I've searched my purchase history on iTunes and AppStore applications, but iPad applications don't appear in either of these lists. Is there anywhere else that I can find my iPad purchase history?

    If they're not on your computer, maybe try doing Check For Available Downloads?

    Why weren't these apps already in your iTunes account on the computer? 2, use time machine, it's a life saver. I can;t believe people don;t use backups in this day and age. Memory is cheap.

    You can see all your purchases in iTunes. Follow the instructions in this link:

    as I mentioned in my post, a majority of the apps were backed up and restored when I did an iPad system restore. Unfortunately, a series of events kept me, or my iPad from home, and I hadn't a chance to backup the last half dozen applications (all purchased on a recent vacation). No need for the lecture on backups - I've been maintaining my own RAID storage for network backups for a good 7 or 8 years and even pay CrashPlan to keep a secondary instance off-site. And backups aren't stored on memory - that would cost an absolute fortune.

    Thanks MacNil - did the trick. I thought that I had checked earlier today and found no history of iPad application purchases. I must have mistaken something else for my purchase history.
