How to Reinstall an App:

To reinstall the application it is best to have a wifi connection, or to sync through your computer.

You have two choices to reinstall the app:

1) "Purchase" it again through the App Store - you *will not* be charged again. The App Store keeps track of your purchases, and won't let you pay twice for the same product. When you click "Buy" and enter your password, it'll say something to the effect of "You've already purchased this app. Tap OK to download it again."

2) Even though the application has been removed from your device, it should still be in your iTunes library. However, since you've removed it from your device, iTunes will no longer sync it to your device. To re-sync it back to your device, select your device in iTunes, go to the "Applications" tab, re-check the app, and sync your device again.
