    Restore it from an iTunes backup or re-download from the App Store.

    There are a few ways to do it, all quite simple.

    I prefer to;

    1. Open the App Store on the device

    2. Go to "purchased" (even free downloads are purchased, for £0)

    3. There is a button at the top that should say "not on this ipad"

    Click that and it will list them all and you can reinstall it.


    Over to you.

    Look in the Purchased List and redownload it from there. If it was a paid App you will not have to pay for it again.
