How do I downgrade an iPhone app to a previous version?

So you were tired of those home screen badge numbers showing up on the App Store icon and you updated your iPhone apps on the go. Now whenever you use one of these updated apps it doesn't work properly or you don't like the so-called improvements made by the developer. How can you downgrade to the previous version?

1. Delete the app from your iPhone.
2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and open iTunes.
3. Do not update your apps in iTunes. Back up and sync your iPhone using iTunes.
4. When the sync is complete, click your iPhone in the left iTunes menu under DEVICES. Click the Apps tab at the top of the iTunes window. Find the app you wish to downgrade under Sync Apps.
5. Make sure the box is checked next to the app you wish to downgrade. Click the Apply button.
6. The old version of the application will be copied from your computer to the iPhone.

If you have already updated the application on your computer, or synced your iPhone before deleting the new version of the app you must follow this step first. Open the trash can or recycling bin and look for the older app version (this file will end with the suffix .ipa).

Drag the old app file into the iTunes window. iTunes will ask if you want to replace the app with an older version. Confirm and begin from step one above. If the old version is not in your trash can you cannot access the older version of the app.

You made some good points there. I looked on the web for
addiitional information about the issue and found most people will go along
with your views on this web site.

I deleted the app. When I sync after my phone without the app there is no app, so how I can find the app that I already deleted ? I think I should go to itunes without sync. Now is to late I guess?!

I visit daily some websites and sites to read articles or reviews,
however this weblog provides feature based content.

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Worked great for me! There were a couple differences, however.

1. In order to get a file out of the recycle bin, there are 2 options: Cut and Restore. Restore will put the file back to where it was before it was "deleted". Restoring the file will put it back into the iTunes folder location in the harddrive, but iTunes doesn't recognize it. So Cut it out of the recycle bin and paste it to another location on the harddrive.
2. I had to first delete the existing version of the app out of iTunes. Until I did that, iTunes wouldn't let me drag the old version onto it. Once I deleted the newest version from iTunes, I was able to drag the desired version onto iTunes, and it installed.

Sometimes you have to trick iTunes into accepting the older app by renaming it as the newer version, and then installing via iTunes.

I like it whenever people come together and share opinions.
Great site, keep it up!

Spot on with this write-up, I actually believe that this web site needs a great deal more attention.
