    Your app purchase History is always going to be in iTunes no matter what as it is associated with your Apple ID in case you ever wish to redownload an uninstalled app. I am not sure what you are asking as far as on your phone?

    yea as stated, your purchase and download history will always follow your apple ID and there is no way to clear it.

    Here's how you do hide it:
    1. Upgrade your version of iTunes to 10.5 (released October 11, 2011).
    2. Click on iTunes Store in the lefthand column of iTunes and log in to your account.
    3. Find "Purchased" in the Quick Links menu on the right hand side of the Store home page. Click on it.
    4. You should see a list of your downloaded apps on the screen. Mouse over any app that you wish to delete. A small "x" in a round circle will appear in the top left corner of the app icon. Click the "x".
    5. A notification will pop up telling you that your purchased app will now be hidden and how you can un-hide it in the future. Click OK. The app will disappear from your purchase history in iTunes and all associated iOS devices instantly. Verify this on your iOS device by navigating to your purchase history in the App Store.
