    I checked my App Store app and have a "Purchased" option at the top under the updates tab. Selecting that brings up a list of all apps and a selection at the top for apps not on my phone. The list of All apps has the iCloud button next to them.

    I'm not running iOS 5 though. When did Apple update the App Store app to show this?

    Edit: if there was an update, I also didnt apply it. My Mac has been at Apple being worked on so I didn't apply it.

    It's been available since shortly after the Keynote :)

    I just updated my apps yesterday and didn't have it?

    I honestly don't even know when the App Store app updates. Does it so it automatically or is it listed? Cause I never saw it listed either.

    Don't know how mine got updated. I did grab the latest version of iTunes but the Purchases tab appeared sometime during Monday evening (as I'm in the UK, the Keynote started at 6pm so it must have happened within a few hours....).

    The App Store App didn't update.
    All of the changes are on the server side of things.

    Makes sense. I just had no idea the cloud feature for apps purchased was being released early. I must have missed that if it was said in the forums or in an article somewhere.

    I remember Steve saying something about how the App store is a service and they don't need to update the app, just like how they added 'ping'.

    The app store is almost like a website you visit, as opposed to a fixed app.

    He said it in the keynote, that the 'purchased' feature would go live that day.
