Expensive app gone!
So I tried updating to ios6 lastnight. I did it ota which might have been my first mistake. The update sent my phone into recovery mode. I had to plug to iTunes and do a restore. At this point I accept that I'm losing all my data, fine. Only one apps data that I care about anyway. (2do) But fine l'll live. It's just one more day until I get my new phone anyway. So this morning I thought hey let me go in appstore and re download my most important app. Maybe by some miracle I may be able to recover the lost data. At any rate I search out the app and click on it. Well instead of the install button i was supposed to get for a previously purchased app I got the $9.99 button. What? I'm not buying this app again! So I go to iTunes to look at my apps and lo and behold it does not exist there. So at this point the hope of the miraculous data recovery is out the window, I got whole new set of problems now.
I'm confused as to why the app is not there, and what can I do to not have to pay for it again. This app is by far the most expensive I own ( or used to own). I am completely miffed,the only app that I was concerned about losing the data to now no longer exists, meanwhile I'm getting freakin "don't leave Jane doe hanging" updates. SMH!
What are my options? I most probably will re purchase the app tomorrow unless there are any ideas in the crowd.
