    Hi, I had an iPhone 5s with the app Playtube on it that I downloaded from the App Store until it was taken down. I moved to Android and now moved back and bought an iPhone 8.
    I tried to redownload all my apps from this iPhone 5s device but I can't find this app. It's so frustrating looking at my old iPhone with that app and not being able to find a way to move it to my new device, any help?

    You should be able to do it with third party software. "iMazing 2" can transfer apps and other data from one iPhone to another. However the app is not free. They do have a free trial though.

    Let’s be honest. No one going to miss this game. No one is going to look back with fond memories. It was a nice looking time waster for a phone game but that’s it.

    .ipa extraction was killed in iOS 9, so iMazing can transfer only app data but not the app itself. No chance to install it if the app was removed from AppStore and there is no locally saved .ipa. iMazing has a workaround for this with manual .ipa management feature, but .ipa must be downloaded manually while the app is still on the App Store.

    p.s. App management is fully supported in free version without any limitations ;)
