    hey guys,

    this may sound dumb, but in couldn't search the answer (partly cause I don't know how to phrase it)

    I've finally got the courage to root my hero, but I don't know how to get my paid apps again without having to pay for it again. I just assumed because it was associated with my email, google would have the record on file?

    any help is appreciated.

    Once you pay for an app, you can always re-download it through the market. It will have a label saying "Purchased" instead of the retail price. Just click it and install.

    Once you already purchased and paid it whether you download it agin you have nothing to worry about the payment since it is already paid.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    That's what I assumed would happen, but it's not doing that. For example, my Documents to Go app is still coming up as 14.99?

    it sounds very unusual !!!

    if you already paid for the application then why they charge for updates ???

    Unless you linked a different gmail account. If not you should still have the receipt so just email the Dev about it.

    Did you buy in the MArket or straight from the developer?

    I think I figured it out, I bought the trial version and unlocked it to the full app through the developer's site.
    So the market probably didn't register my app as a full version.

    When I downloaded the free version, it was automatically unlocked! :D

    Mystery solved. Thanks guys
