    Not acceptable. Like location-gate, anyone who obtains access to my device can see my app download history without encryption or password protection.

    Might I add that this was not an option we could choose to have on our devices, it magically appeared, without concent. Very poor practices indeed.

    It's in Beta, get over it!

    I agree I don't want something that doesn't give me privacy. I don't want my app history on display. I wish there was a way to delete purchase history. If they can't get rid of the ones we purchased at least let us get rid of the free ones. It's not fair to be stuck with something that wasn't an option to have in the first place. icloud is dumb. At least until they find a way to be more private. The best thing people can do is complain to itunes.Go directly to the source and complain. Theres a complaint option on this site. Complain away.

    no it's not beta - it's gone live

    I agree, this part is not beta. Let's keep replying to this thread. It may attract Apple's attention.

  • NVBrit Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes it is in Beta, this was clearly stated by Steve Jobs in the keynote and is also clearly stated on Apples iCloud page.

    I think you are missing the point NVBrit

    I just wan to add my voice in support of this most common sense request - we need the ability to delete or hide unwanted items from the purchased list!

    100% agreed. Ridiculous feature. Feedback submitted. And since when has beta-participation been mandatory, instant, fully automatic and irreversible?!


    In the light of phones being searched and seized by officials in many countries, having any kind of history so freely accessible is downright irresponsible.

  • Roosevelt Jones Level 2 (380 points)

    The Purchase History option was available in the iBooks app well before the iCloud announcement. If the feature was not already in other stores, it apparently is being rolled out now.


    It probably is irresponsible for purchase history information to be freely accessible. iPods and iOS devices are personal devices. The user has to be logged into the iTunes Stores in order to access the purchase history. If a user is logged out of the iTunes Stores, Apple will not make it difficult to log back in if the user wants to purchase or update apps and other media.

    well it's been a few days now and i notice a few more threads have popped up on this issue.  anyone close to the Apple development teams know whether this issue has hit their radar screens and whether they are doing anything about it?

  • Koroshiya Level 1 (0 points)

    I'd like the abilty to clean up my purchase history or at the very least organize it.  I hate that I can't create buckets for things.  I have multiple iOS devices.. some that I let my kid use and some that only I use.  The ability for me to organize my purchases is invaluable to me.

    Well, if Apple don't fix this, we can still ignore the existence as a useless feature for many users. We have lived four years without it. I never missed it. Still, it would be a missed opportunity to increase user satisfaction.

  • iamlucasking Level 1 (0 points)

    Not entirely true. It is already in place, and was not an option, it was updated on our devices without our concentrate or knowledge. They announced it and *poof* it was there on our devices. Now, anyone that gains access to our device, has the free reign to examine what apps, songs, or videos we have downloaded. That's a huge privacy issue. Not dissimilar to "locationgate" in my opinion. We don't (and never did) have the option to ignore it.

  • iamlucasking Level 1 (0 points)

    Concentrate should read "concent". Stupid iPhone.
