iOS - This app is no longer shared with you. To use it, you must buy it from the App Store.

I recently got this message when I tapped on an iOS App, even after multiple taps I was unable to open it. Here is how I was able to fix this issue.

  1. Go to Settings App,
  2. Go to General,
  3. Now Scroll down to iPhone Storage,
  4. Tap on the Application that has this issue,
  5. Now click on Offload App, Note this you will not loose data.

    This will free up storage used by the app, but keep its documents and data. Reinstalling the app will place back your data if the app is still available in the App Store.

  6. Now click on Reinstall, this will get the App downloaded from the App Store.
