    I bought iAnnotate PDF, and I returned my iPad, only to buy another one today. I believe I download iAnnotate from my old iPad, and now when I synched my new iPad, iAnnotate is nowhere to be seen.

    How to I redownload iAnnotate without paying for it again (which would be ridiculous)

    Just download it. Once you pay for a version of an app, you get "every new version" (i.e. updates) free. So you can re-download apps you deleted just by going in and clicking the button again. iTunes keeps track of purchases.

    I've done this lots of times. Apple recognizes after you enter your P/W that you've already purchased and gives you a message to that effect, asking if you wish to download again. :)

    That's quite peculiar. I've always gotten the message, with iPod Touch, iPhone 3Gs and my iPad. No exceptions.

    I don't receive a duplicate invoice from Apple, however.

    A question: Have you synced the iPad to iTunes since purchasing the app in question? iTunes keeps track.

    Yes but I didn't do a restore. All my purchased apps synched without a problem. Iannotate is completely gone from iTunes....

    Well, I'm at a loss to explain that one. If you were originally invoiced for the purchase I wouldn't worry. You can always dispute it if you're charged again. Save that invoice! :)

    I just looked it up; pricey app, just had an update today (04/27.) I see why you don't want to be charged again. Great ratings, tho.

    seems like my spam folder deleted my official itunes receipt. I paid via paypal, but it doesn't list the app on it. I don't understand how the app magically disappeared from my itunes.

    Might I suggest adding The Apple Store to your Address Book so that in the future it doesn't happen again?
