If I delete Cogs, will I be able to re-download my Puzzle Packs for free?

I am on my way to deleting Cogs from my iPhone, but before I do, will I be able to recover my downloaded puzzle packs for free the next time I install it on here? Or will I have to pay again?

The only reason I ask is because I don't see a "Retrieve downloads" button anywhere like games such as Rock Band have, so I was a little worried.

Yes -- iTunes won't allow you to pay twice for the same download, even if there's not "retrieve" button.

Why do you want to delete it anyway?

Thank you for the help

The reason I was going to delete is because I wanted my iPhone to look less cluttered, and started deleting apps that I don't play anymore/have the urge to play anymore. Cogs was one of those games, and I didn't like playing it much because it was just a glorified sliding puzzle, and I suck at those immensely, and hit a wall in the levels because I can't pass a certain one.

But before I delete any app for sure, I start it up and try to play it once more, to see if it really will be okay to delete. Of course I did the same with Cogs, but this time I played the Challenge mode, where you have only ten moves to complete the puzzle. That right there hooked me right back into the game, and I realized that my strategy to beating the levels has been incredibly stupid

So I was going to delete it because it was one of the many apps I had on my iPhone that was just taking up space, and I never had the urge to play it. But I decided that it wasn't worth deleting after I peeled away that extra layer of gameplay

Thank you again for the help with the in-app purchases question, though. It helps a lot
