Any way to find and download 32bit apps in library?

Over the 7+ years of being trapped inside the Apple ecosystem, I have accumulated well over 5000 apps/games. Is there a practical way of finding and downloading 32bit apps in your purchase history?
I was thinking about starting my way at the bottom my purchase history and look at anything that's seems worth keeping. If I download it and a warning screen comes up I caught a 32bitter. However, it takes over a minute of constant scrolling to get to the bottom of my purchase history. My position gets reset to the beginning a lot. Also, it takes FOREVER to load because I have so many apps. This method is not at all practical. Anyone have an idea of how I can identify and download 32bit apps that won't take 6 months to complete?
I feel like calling Apple tech support and complaining. They made it extremely difficult to identify old apps in your purchase history. This 64bit transition is train wreck. It's like they barely thought it through...

Basically just download whatever you feel like installing and check out if they're listed in General -> About

Or check if they've been updated around the 1st of June 2015.

Rather than trying to do any research first and doing this would save me time by preventing some of the loading issues and the resetting position issues. Thanks!
Now, this is like a 2-month endeavor rather than the original 6 months.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.
