    I think I found a bug that wasn't there in iOS 5.1
    In 5 you could delete the un-installed apps from the app list (located in the app store), by simply going to the 'open' button, and swipe it to the side...
    This would turn the 'open' into a 'delete' button.

    Now in iOS 6 this methos doesn't work anymore?

    Can someone please tell me how to get rid of these un-installed apps within the app store menu?
    Thanks!

    On iTunes on a computer you can "hide" them... if using iTunes "in the cloud"...

    In iTunes - on the right side, under Quick Links - select "Purchased" - then Apps near the top... you have the option of "not on this computer" - the apps there should be the ones you've deleted... you have an option to download, or - hover over, and an x with a circle around it shows up in the upper left corner of the icon - clicking that will "hide" the app... to "unhide", you have to go to view your account in iTunes, and in the section for iTunes in the cloud - you can view hidden purchases and re-download. You can't delete anything...

    Thus far, there doesn't appear to be an option to "hide" purchased apps from being displayed like before. I suppose the only way to do it is by logging into the App Store via a computer and doing it or via iTunes.
