iPad Now Detects Previously Purchased Apps That Haven’t Been Installed

This is one of those small but really useful things – the iPad has started showing an INSTALL button in place of the BUY NOW button if you have previously purchased an app but don’t currently have it installed.

The App Store won’t let you buy something twice. If you’ve previously purchased something but don’t have it on your device, when you go to buy it again, it will pop up saying that you have previously purchased it and can install it for free.

However, it’s not until you click ‘Buy Now’ that it pops up….if you were to have not bought it before (or there was some kind of similar or duplicate app), it’s too late – you’ve just bought it so I always worry using that feature.

Now on the iPad, you will know for sure that you’ve previously bought it before clicking on it.

I really hope they implement this change across all iOS devices (i.e the iPhone).

In fact, why didn’t they do it long ago? :)
