    It allows me to place apps that have long since been discontinued or banned from iTunes for one reason or another, back on my iPhone.
    For example, I don't know why Cycle Timer was long ago excluded from the iTunes store but I used to own it. Once deleted I lost the ability to ever download it back to my iPhone. Today I was able to.
    Another app is Easy Wi-Fi. Again this cool app was discontinued and not available in the app store and today I again downloaded it.

    Just a nice feature if you had apps you miss. You can now find them again in your personal app queue under iTunes >Quick Links >Purchased >Not in my Library.

    Enjoy!

    I've been able to redownload banned Tetris clone, Tris. :)

    I hope it stays this way. I'm surprised its still on Apple's servers.

    Apple was legally obliged to remove that App from the store.

    When that is the case, they wont be able to offer it in the "Purchased" menu.

    Ah, shoot. That's right.
    Not all unregistered apps are back.
    Shaken Baby is also MIA.
