Amongst many new features that Apple has added in the App Store alongside iCloud and iOS 5,one new feature is the ability to re-download all of your purchases on any authenticated iOS device. This means that all of your purchased apps can be viewed and downloaded from the App Store at any time.

If having a list of your past app purchases is not what you really want then, you can  hide specific app store purchases by following simple steps mentioned below:

  • On the iPhone, navigate to the “Updates” section of the App Store app and tap on the “Purchased” menu. You will then see a list of previously purchased apps categorized into “All” and “Not On This iPhone.”

  • Swipe with your finger on each app to bring up the option to hide that purchase. Tap “Hide” and the desired app will be erased from your purchase history. The same option can be used in the “Purchased” section of the App Store on the iPad.

Mint To Release it’s iPad App Very Soon

In the race to release app for iPad, the four giants – Facebook, Google Docs, Mint and LinkedIn were in the running. Out of these Facebook was the quickest to release it’s very own app for iPad. Following in the footsteps of Facebook, Mint has decided to release its very own app for iPad.

For all those who don’t know what Mint is, Mint is by far the BEST finance managing service available! If you haven’t used it yet, there no better time than now to start!

In a tweet posted October 11th, Mint mobile designer Jaanus Kase said “the Mint iPad app is nearly done and will be out very shortly.” He also stated on Mint’s satisfaction forums that the next Mint app will be universal (both for iPhone and iPad) and that it will require iOS 5, which is one of the reasons the company could not release it until now.

People with iPhone 3G units, the new Mint app will not work since the maximum iOS on that device is 4.2.1. However, Kase states that Mint will continue to support its current iOS app for those running iOS 4.

Now, LinkedIn and Google Docs must get your acts together, “ball is in your court!!”

Download Redsnow 0.9.9b6 to Jailbreak iOS 5 on Windows

The iPhone Dev Team has finally released an update to Redsn0w which adds support for Windows users. The previous version released a week back lacked support for Jailbreaking iOS5 final on Windows.

This update also fixes the aGPS issues with iPhone 3GS.

From the iPhone Dev-Team:

We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.

It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked).  If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).
