    Just came across something on accident and didn't know if this was intentional or not. I turned on family sharing because I wanted to try the hide feature fire apps I know longer use then I turned the family sharing off. When I went back into my purchases, all of the apps that I had hidden were gone and the ones that I had previously purchased, I was asked to purchase again. I liked that all of those free apps that I had tried and then deleted were finally erased, but I guess you would have to be careful with hiding your paid apps.

    You would not have to purchase anything again. You might have to enter your passcode like when purchasing, but it would tell you it's already purchased.

    Then that's a bug. You should call or email iTunes. They're great at helping. They should refund that second purchase. Just explain to them what happened.

    I'm experiencing something similar. I tried to download an app that I've not had on my iPhone, but family member has. Currently they don't have it installed on their phone either. I get this error message:Family Sharing Bug?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1412554831.150322.jpg

    Has anyone had this?

    No but developers can choose to opt out of family sharing so maybe that's the message that appears.

    Were you sharing an iTunes ID with a family member before iOS 8? Or is this about the new family share?

    The new family share. I've always had a separate Apple ID

    Does the second AppleID use the same credit card?

    It didn't before, but we set up my credit card as the one for payments under family sharing.

    Yeah. My wife and I share iTunes ID and I just downloaded a paid app on her phone I had got for me. No problems.
