Question: Purchased Apps. Not Found

I have only ever had one Apple ID, and I have purchased countless apps. on my iPhone which I have set up to regularly SYNC with my MAC, which is also listed as an "authorized device". The problem is NONE of my iPhone apps. appear on my MAC... In other words, when I open the App Store on my MAC, NONE of the apps. i have purchased on my iPhone show up under "PURCHASED" on my MAC, even though I only have one APPLE ID/the same Apple ID for both my iPhone and my MAC. They are NOT hidden, they simply aren't there - NONE OF THEM, so there is NO WAY for me to "reinstall", as directed through Apple Help. I have wasted the better part of 3 DAYS, trying to resolve the issue, and I'm getting to the point where I HATE ALL THINGS APPLE!!! I'm ready to switch to GOOGLE and get a Samsung Smart Phone, because this is RIDICULOUS!!

The two App Stores are not the same. The Mac App Store is apps for Macs. The iOS App Store on your iPhone is apps for iOS devices. One does not run on the other. Your iPhone apps will appear in the Purchases section of the iPhone's App Store. You redownload them from there. To get to the Purchased apps, tap the user icon in the top right of the App Store app and then tap Purchases.

Next time just ask for help. None of the users here are impressed with silly tantrums and threats. Go to Google & Samsung, no one here cares or needs to know. It's just immature & childish.
