Hello all,

I just noticed, that once you click on App stre app, there is "Purchased" Tab. which keeps tracks of all your Free/paid apps , so far you have downloaded under that Apple ID.

How would i clean those ??? i have big list of an apps and would like to organize it....
thankz:confused:

Correct me if I am wrong, I don't think you can actually delete those downloaded apps.. but you can hide them using iTunes.

There's only 1 reason why you'd want to hide that. ;)
It's not like there's anything adult enough in the app store to be embarrassed about. I, too, though, have dozens of crap/free apps I tried out and would like never to see them again.

A related problem is that updates re-install deleted apps. I, too, would like to know how to permanently delete apps from my account in the App Store. I tried not updating deleted apps, but they begin to pile up in the "Updates" page. PITA
