    This is pretty stupid but I recently did the jailbreak on my iPhone and restored it using an old backup, anyway Ive lost access to some applications that I paid for, anyway to get them back using iTunes?

    Check for purchases informs me that All purchases have been downloaded for this account however my recently purchased list directly contradicts this...

    The reason I didn’t have a recent backup is because they always took so long and I thought id left one to run over night but obviously it didn’t complete.

    Anyway any help appreciated, thanks.

    With paid apps, Apple lets you download the ones you purchased as many times as you want, but still keeps the limit on the amount of devices you're able to use them on. I don't know the exact procedure, but you should be able to re-download them. On the app page maybe?

    Because the copyright holders won't allow it, because they have other places to distribute. With apps, Apple specified the rules to use the SDK and be on the AppStore (their only legal outlet), so they got to dictate the terms.
