UGH! How many times have you purchased an application for your iPhone or iPad thinking you owned it – but you didn’t and had to buy it. Thanks to a little trick you can find out if you already own an iPhone app to avoid accidental purchases!

You can add it to a wish list!

Simply find the app and instead of clicking the “BUY” button, click the drop-down arrow next to it, and choose “Add to Wish List”. If you have already purchased the app (or any iTunes media for that fact), you will be told that you have already purchased the item.

Neat. Unfortunately you can only do this trick on a desktop computer and not on your device – but I’ll take it.
