For as long as I could remember, you could always view all your purchased apps, even if they weren’t installed. Then over the course of various updates and the move from Market to Play Store, the functionality was removed. You still owned the apps, there just wasn’t an easy way to see them all.
Now thanks to Paul over at Modaco, there’s a fix for that. From the same man that freed the camera functionality on the Nexus 7, we have the Legacy Play Store. He’s pulled the function to see all your purchased apps from a previous version of the Play Store and hacked it to work alongside the current version. Now you can view My Apps and see all your purchases that aren’t currently installed.
One thing to note, you’re probably gonna need to be rooted for it to work. You can try to sideload the APK, but it’s recommended you push it to /system/app and chmod it to 644. If you don’t know what that means, then it’s probably time to learn how to use ADB. Download the Legacy Play Store at the source link below.
