how to delete unused games from app store

by J4art / April 30, 2014 6:17 AM PDT

I absolutely love my iPad, w/retina display 16 GB WiFi.

I have bought or got free a lot of games from the App store. But when I find I don't like them or can't play them offline, I'd like to delete from the 'purchased' list.
Anyone know how? Jo

new question: thumbs up or down!

I was afraid of that. We buy their product and they can't please us? I can't believe they can't manage to make the deleting possible.

Thanks, Jo

Technically they are on the "purchased list" because

you purchased them, or got them for free.
Deleting them from the list would indicate that you didn't purchase them, or get them for free.

If you delete them from the iPad, and from iTunes if you use it, then you will not see updates for them again.
