Just a question, what if I accidentally and stupidly deleted an App I paid for either in my iTunes or directy in iPad while jiggling apps around, what can i do to recover the app back without having to pay for it again?

Say accidental delete in iTunes, will my iPad lose this app when i sync it and vice versa... Anyone have answers?

The App Store keeps a record of the apps you have paid for. You can download them again - directly to your iPad if you want - and you won't have to pay for them again. If you go through this process, to begin with, it looks as though you are going to be charged a second time - because it quotes the price at you - but, at the last minute, it says 'Already Paid For' and off you go...

Thanks Tim. At least I don't have to experiment it myself.

On a related point, too, several Members have asked what happens if they buy an app they don't like or it doesn't work etc. Apple have a refund policy in place; 'phone the Apple Support Line with the purchase reference number (it's on the iTunes invoice that you receive after you purchased the app) and they'll refund the money to your iTunes account. I may be cynical, but Apple do this without question because they keep their 'cut' of the sale of the app and the Developer has to refund the purchase price in full - meaning they're somewhat out of pocket!!

Have fun and enjoy your iPad.
