I have had several iOS devices since the iPhone came out and I've probably downloaded hundreds of apps since the beginning of the App Store. I want to have a list of all the apps I've purchased but I don't have a way to know which apps I've bought.

Looking at the purchase history in iTunes, the interface is horrible and its not useful for anything, its not even clickable. Is there an alternative way to get my purchase history so that I can actually go and download apps that I have already purchased, or even see them in a more viewable format (or maybe even an API

    Your purchase history is the way to do this. You could check your receipts, assuming you save them.

    What problem are you having. I can see my purchased fine on the purchase history.

    There is no single list just of apps available, nor of anything else, only the Purchase History, all multiple pages of it.

    Right, I see them fine too, I just have 29 pages of receipts and nothing is useful. I wanted to just get a list of all apps I've ever downloaded.

    I am very glad to find another iTunes Account Holder who most likely (like myself) went to their 'Purchase History' on iTunes hoping to be able to view their purchased songs in a view which account users can see songs purchased in total.

    I would love to be able to see all my songs purchased in one grouping.

    I do not go to this account purchase history to just check and see if Apple billed me correctly, (billing is not ever an issue).

    I go to Purchase History hoping to see my songs in a list.
    For example: I want to copy and paste a list of all my purchases into other software apps or into an e-mail to my kids.
    The iTunes *Purchase History Landing* is not acceptable.

    I would like to view my child's purchase history without having to access their phone each time. Is there a way to do this?

    You don't need the child's phone at all. All you need it the Apple ID and password to the account. Then see:



    For future questions, it's usually going to be more effective if you start a new topic rather than posting in another person's thread, particularly one that was last active several years ago.
