Banned Apps resurrected with iCloud

Remember all those apps which were first allowed into the App Store only to be removed later, well thanks to the cloud you can now re-download these great apps. CDFXapps noticed that the App Store app on their iOS 5-enabled iPad gave them the option of redownloading the no-longer-available DOS emulation app. This is part of the new iCloud feature, already in place, that lets you re-grab your iTunes purchases if you don’t have them locally.

This is certainly handy if you’ve accidentally deleted or misplaced an app that you bought before it got pulled — but somehow we have a feeling this particular loophole will get closed relatively soon.
