iCloud introduces “Purchased” list of your apps for easy re-downloading. But for those sharing an account, what if you don’t want certain titles to show up? Easy (via 9to5mac):

  • iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Use the same swipe motion (from right to left) on the app as if you are deleting an email. You’ll get a one time note about it.
  • iTunes / Mac App Store: hover over app or item name with house.
