    I want to reinstall Crash bandicoot but on my iphone it's telling me to reinstall from my mac(I have 3.0) so I try it on my mac and it's telling me it will charge me for it. This is a new mac and i had deleted it off my old mac, surely my itunes account should new i had the game before???


    edit, it's showing up on my purchase history??

    It says that, but it's lying. It really isn't going to charge you.

    EDIT: My apologies, I thought you were trying to download it on your computer. It WILL charge you again.

    Re-download it in iTunes on your computer for free.

    They seem to have implemented a new system to break some of the ability for people to illegally share things.

    These messages say that you have to either download the App on your computer or re-buy it on the phone. Just download it on your computer and will work fine.

    Try seeing if you can write a review for it on you mac. If you can, then the computer knows you own it and you shouldn't be charged. If you can't write a review, then the computer thinks you don't own it and you will be charged.

    Good tip!

    I've had to update my FAQ for our app (100sounds) because of this change.
