Recovering paid apps on your Android phone

I have been asked several times by users how to get a paid app back onto their phone after resetting the phone or deleting the app, so I have decided to make a post here to explain the process.  If you have bought an app the Market ‘remembers’ that you have paid for it, making it easy to re-download if necessary.

To re-download an app you have already paid for on most android phones:

  • Open the android market
  • Press the menu button, choose Downloads (this is also where you go to leave comments)
  • Any app that is paid for, but not currently installed will be listed as “Purchased”
  • Click app that you would like to re-install, follow on-screen instructions

Simple as that.  Please comment below if you have any questions, thanks!
