I've kind of a dumb question. I've recently purchased an app from play store. I've not installed it yet, but I notice that there is a remove option for it. My question if I remove it, do I have to purchase it again or is it only removed from my apps list?

  • I'm not asking about reinstalling the app in the phone. I'm asking about the remove app from my apps list option in the play store. If i remove it from there, should i purchase it again. Why is there a remove option at all for the purchased apps. – thomarjos Dec 2 '14 at 4:32

    Basically, the answer is the same: unless you ask for refund, everything you do won't invalidate the purchase. "My apps" can be considered as a history of your Play Store transaction. – Andrew T. Dec 2 '14 at 4:39

    Thank you for clarifying that. How will you find that particular app again, once you have removed it from My Apps? – thomarjos Dec 2 '14 at 4:43

    You can check it on Play Store's My Orders or browser version of My apps (maybe related) – Andrew T. Dec 2 '14 at 4:48

Once you purchase an app you don't have to purchase it again unless you switch Google accounts.

  • Even if I remove it from my apps list? – thomarjos Dec 2 '14 at 1:13
