That's correct. Even if you delete from iTunes, you still can re-download them under purchased in Apple server.
Send you feedback to Apple.
Currently, when you delete an app from your iPhone, it merely gets removed the the phone, but stays in your list of available apps in iTunes.
So, currently, when you try an app on your phone and decide you dont like it, it remains in your list of downloaded apps in iTunes. The only way to permanently delete it, is to remember to go back to iTunes and manually delete it from there.
I am assuming this is accurate and there is no way in iTunes to see which apps were recently removed from the phone (thereby jogging your memory as to what apps you might want to permanently get rid of.
I wish, when deleting an App from the iPhone/iPad, you were given the choice of "remove from iPhone/iPad" and "permanently delete." I've got way too many unwanted apps cluttering up iTunes...
I agree. This is a large problem.
unfortunately ckuan, that isn't a solution.
if you have tested a few apps that do the same thing to find the best one to suit your needs, how are you supposed to know which one to use when you look at your account and see them all, instead of the app you actually want?
You're right. Thanks for the hint.
I thought the new Mountain Lion has added this function, because I don't have to sign in again with my Apple ID to see my purchases and the hide/unhide button was missing. My bad.
In SL and Lion days, I have to sign in even though my Apple ID was visible (top right) to see the purchase and the hide/unhide button was available. Now that they've relax the Apple ID sign in and so my mistake.
