    I'm on a family sharing plan and want to hide some purchases because they are not appropriate for some people on the account. In previous versions you could swipe left in the App Store and hit hide. This does not seem to work in iOS 10. Anyone else experience this?

    I have another question. Can you use iTune gift cards in family sharing or do you have to use a credit card for purchases.

    Thanks.

    Using the swipe to the left method in the Purchased section of the App Store?

    Haven't been able to do that in the last few iOS versions on the iPhone. It still works on the iPad though.

    So I figured out it works on my iPad and only on my iPhone if it is in landscape.

    Thank you. OP, for sharing the obscure solution. I was futzing with the list last nite trying to make it work again (portrait view, of course). I find that I often forget how "special" landscape view is. Maybe I'll remember now to try flipping to that the next time something eludes me.
