    Apologies if this has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the right search paramaters. Further apologies if this is the wrong forum. Anyway...


    Say I buy... Project Magazine Issue 3. It's ~300mb. A few weeks later, I want to free up space so I delete it. Is there any way to retrieve it later? This goes for any other sort of in-app purchase. I want to start buying magazines on my iPad, but most of them are bigger than a TV show. On my 16GB iPad this is going to fill up QUICK!

    Any advice would be helpful so I can download content, but be able to retrieve it later.

    Cheers,
    -Matt

    Aha, figured it out! If you just go to download it again, Apple is smart enough to detect that you've purchased it before. Here's a screen cap:
