I deleted some apps to make space ,recently.  I wanted to reload one of them and there is no "purchased" record for any apps, and if I reinstall an app defrost the App Store, it seems to be already installed ,but no icon appears


What do I do to correct this

iPad 2, iOS 6.1, Small memory option ith home netwo

    Have you ever synced with iTunes on your computer? If so, these Apps should be saved in iTunes and you can restore them from there.

    itunes on a computer

    make sure it's using your appleID

    click the home tab it sort of looks like a house

    click purchased

    here you have all apps ever bought with your appleID and you can redownload them


    otherwise navigating to the app on the ios device

    and choosing to "buy" it will result in a free download as the app is already connected to the appleID
