I just updated to a new 3GS phone, from 1st Gen, and I lost every app I downloaded directly to my old iPhone from the App Store. I know I can redownload them for free, but having to figure out which apps they were and go through the whole "purchase, 'you already purchased, do you wish to redown?" junk for dozen or so apps doesn't sound like fun. Is there anyway to get those apps back onto my iPhone in mass? The "check for avail downloads" options does not work. I always wondered what would happen to apps I've directly downloaded to my iPhone over the years, since they never actually show up in my Applications list on iTunes. Guess I know know ... they are lost in the black abyss.
