    Yesterday i purchased Wunder Radio directly from the app store on my touch. I sync'd it with my PC's Itunes today and it removed it (it said so at the banner at the top) and now it is no-where to be found. Not on the ipod, not under the applicaton tab on itunes, nowhere. So now i'm screwed out of £3.99.

    Does anyone know ehre I can find it or has it gone forever.

    Just go back into the app store and "buy" it again. iTunes will recognise that you already bought it and let you download it again for free.

    It says am i sure i want to buy and d/l it, payment will be charged etc. Does it usually say this when d/ling for a second time.

    Yup. Once you click buy, a second popup will appear saying that your download will be free. This is indeed confusing. I was hoping that Apple would eventually implement a tagging system in the app store to indicate apps that you've already purchased.

    Remember the tip, click the app review page and if it pops
    open iTunes recognizes you as an owner (and, subsequently
    if you're not a window opens stating you must purchase the app
    to review it). You may download it again without the fear
    of being charged again.

    Next time, when you're in iTunes, right click on your touch and select "transfer purchases".

    You mean like they have in the iDevice's App Store (the button says "Installed" instead)? Yeah, I'm not super impressed with iTunes anymore. Can you tell?

    Exactly like that. Just like the "installed" tag on your device, iTunes would show "purchased". This shouldn't be hard for Apple to develop given that it's just a database field. Ex: (select "purchased?" from users where username = logged-in account") You get the picture.
