Is it possible to get a list of bought iOS apps?

I would like to export the apps I've bought from the App Store, and keep some kind of annotated list in a spreadsheet, to give myself an overview of which apps to install, or which ones I haven't tried yet, along with comments etc.

Is this possible somehow?

In iTunes, you can see all your purchased apps... I am using iTunes with Appstore probably 12.6.3, haven't checked whether standard iTunes version 12.9. can still show apps or not.

On your iPhone>tap App Store>Tap the icon to the right of Updates>Tap Purchased.

This will give you all of the apps that you have ever downloaded.

If you click your name and email at the top of the account page and scroll down to Purchase History, click on "Last 90 Days" and it'll show you all your iTunes receipts by year and month and you can resend the receipts.

You can also request a data dump from Apple now via https://appleid.apple.com/ but it doesn't include the price you paid. You also have to wait a few days for security reasons.

Unfortunately those are just downloaded apps, and since I have several hundreds, many of which aren't downloaded, it is not a complete option. Also, as you mention, you can't see the appsin iTunes anymore!

On your iPhone>tap App Store>Tap the icon to the right of Updates>Tap Purchased.

Thanks, but there's no way to export that data, and I'd like not to sit and type in several hundred names manually.

This only shows you them in increments, and again, no export option.

This turned out to be exactly what I was looking for!
For anyone else looking for a list of your bought/free applications on iOS, tvOS, or macOS, this is what you should do. Go for the dump, and select the top option that says something like "Information about Apples media services", which will give you .csv files containing information on everything you have bought on all their stores. Data easy to manipulate! :)

Edit: Turns out I have a total of 1213 iOS/tvOS apps 'bought'. I am glad I did this, and didn't type everything in manually. :p

How do I request a data dump? I can’t see where on the page to request it.
