    ok, i just got a new mac, and as i was trying to restore my itunes from my old one. And as i was syncing it with my iphone, it just started to delete some of my apps... which i paid for...
    now, as i was re-searching the deleted apps on my iphone to re-download them, looks like i have to pay for them again...
    basically, i want to know to get the deleted apps back. i dont want to pay for them again, and they were accidentally deleted...

    If you go into the app store and click buy, it will say "this update is free because you purchased a previous version". Doesn't charge you. Make sure you download with the iTunes Account that you bought the apps on.

    Restoring deleted apps to iPhone

    I'm struggling with a slight variation: I deleted the Google app off my iPhone, and now I want to try it again but it refuses to reinstall. I have downloaded it and see it in my Applications in iTunes, but it never reappears on my phone. Any advice?

    Make sure iTunes is set to sync "All Apps" and/or you have Google's Mobile App selected in the "Sync these apps:" area of (iPhone --> applications) in iTunes.

    Thanks, Future Blues. iTunes was set to sync only selected apps, and Google was not selected.
