Dear Lifehacker, Something glitched when I was updating my iPhone to 3.01 this morning, so I had to do a full wipe and restore. Urk. All my purchased apps restored, except for my purchased copy of SimpleMind, the excellent mindmapping tool. Bad enough that I've lost a bunch of mindmap data - but who do I go to to get the app back? Appstore? Programmer? Anyone have advice or experiences on this issue? Thanks, Phil
Dear Phil, While standard advice is always to back up everything on your iPhone before any update, even that isn't always enough. I'll confess to having no particular expertise in this (I'm a BlackBerry fiend), so rather than bombarding you with a bunch of Google links you've probably already found already, I'll open it up to the readers. Anyone got any specific advice on getting iPhone apps back after a failed update?
