After I reinstalled iTunes and reconfigured all my mp3s I synced my iPhone. To my dismay two of the three applications I purchased through the appstore dissapeared from my phone. Now I can't find any way to redownload them. What a moronic system - can anyone explain how you re-download software purchases if your iTunes data files get screwed up? I can't possibly be the only person who has had this problem.

Thanks in advance.

    I don't remember the answers, but this same question has been asked and answered many time on this forum.

    Do a forum search and see if you can find the answer.

    Sorry, I can't remember the details, but a search should help a lot.

    Problem solved - somewhat.

    I found the applications still on my hard drive. At any rate for all the new users coming to work with the iTunes store for the first time it would be smart for apple to warn users downloading software about their *one time only* policies. I can guarantee you countless others less tech savvy then myself will share this irritation when they lose a few hundred dollars worth of software to some hardware failure.
