    I have several iOS devices. Last week apple updated AppStore - the icon "purchased" started to appear on the iPad.
    But one of my iPad will not show "purchased" icon on the bottom. IOS 4.33, same AppleID as other iPad.
    Does anyone else have seen this issue?

    Do both iPads share the same iTunes account? Maybe they're rolling this out slowly across all the iTunes accounts?

    Try restarting the iPad. The changes are server side, and I'm sure that the App Store does some caching, so give it a chance to reload the store. Be patient. It'll show up eventually.

    Also, go to the bottom left corner of the Featured page and make sure it is displaying your account ID. I doubt the purchased icon will show up if you are not logged in.

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    Make sure that in settings - store - you have automatic downloads on.

    Only if you want them. They should not affect the presence of the Purchased icon in the store. I don't keep a lot of music on my iPad. I definitely do not want the songs showing up just because I purchased them from some other device or the computer.

    I have auto downloads turned on on in iTunes, so that I don't have to worry about syncing them or Transfering Purchases to the computer. On my iPad I only have the Books set to auto download.

    Saddly, my Verizon iPhone is not one of the devices that works with the beta iCloud services.

    Hm, well all you can do is keep trying. It might be worth a call to Apple Tech support. Remember that this feature is still in beta, and that means glitches and problems are expected.

    You know, now that I think about it, Apple releasing a product in beta is just weird. That's a Google sort of MO.

    Interesting enough, when I try to download an app purchased on a different device - it knows about it. The option is "install" after selecting it.
