What were the first apps you ever downloaded from the App Store?

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the iOS App Store, which has a lot of us here at The Verge thinking about what the first apps that we ever went and installed on our iPhones and iPod Touches were.

Fortunately, Apple makes this easy — the App Store has a “Purchased” section designed to let you easily re-download apps, which also serves as a convenient ledger of (almost) all the apps you’ve ever bought or installed on your devices. (Despite the name, the section includes both free and paid apps.)

To see your original apps, head over to the App Store, tap your account icon in the top right corner, head into the Purchased section, and then just scroll all the way down. Now, there’s a couple caveats here: any apps that have been completely removed from the App Store won’t show up, so it’s not a truly complete list. And apps that haven’t been updated for 64-bit devices will still be there, but will show up as greyed-out options that you won’t be able to reinstall.
