I own Peggle for iPhone and bought the Peggle Nights addon from within the app. I installed Peggle on my new iPad, but Peggle Nights isn't available.

I've seen other iOS games (like 100 Rogues) that have a "check for purchases" feature alongside "purchase", but Peggle doesn't have this. If I click "purchase", will I be charged another $4, or will the app just reactivate my purchase?

(After a few back-and-forth emails with PopCap support trying to get them to understand my question, they punted and suggested I ask Apple.)

iTunes Store: About In-App Purchases

If you lose your In-App Purchases because apps were accidentally deleted, or if you had to restore your device without a backup, you may be able to download some of your in app purchases again for free. Not all In-App Purchases are eligible for free download again.

  • Replenishable In-App Purchases and subscriptions cannot be downloaded again for free, and must be repurchased. Examples include but are not limited to: extra ammo additional health, extra experience points, or other one-time services.
  • Non-replenishable In-App Purchases and auto-renewing subscriptions can be downloaded again for free. Examples include: bonus game levels a map/city guide, a daily news subscription, or other recurring services.
  • To download an In-App Purchase again, you must download it from within the installed app using the same iTunes Store account name for the original In-App Purchase.

It's an addon that is not limited, ergo a non-replenishable In-App purchase. So I would say it has to work.

  • Agreed, as long as it's the same iTunes/Apple account the in-app purchase will be free. If it charges you, contact Apple and you'll get a refund, but it won't charge you. Commented May 19, 2011 at 22:29
