Question: Keep deleted app from reappearing?

So if I delete an app on my iPad, will it actually be permanently deleted, or will it be lurking in some cloud or update list, waiting to reestablish itself on my device?

If you delete an app from your iPad, it is permanently deleted from your iPad. It will not appear unless you re-download the app. However, the app is still going to appear in your list of purchased apps. It will always be there. However, it's not taking up space and it won't suddenly reappear on your iPad.
