Locus Store: Easily download purchased items

Simple situation:

I install Locus on a new phone and want to download my favorite purchased maps and stuff from the store. Alas, I have to search for everything explicitly. There's a purchase history, but clicking on the items doesn't take me there. I also see no other way to quickly access my purchased stuff.

Either I'm overlooking something, or this possibility is dearly missed!

You are also able to do a backup (to cloud) including your purchased maps. This should help you.

Why use Cloud space for maps that are available through Locus store anyway? Sounds like a waste, especially as maps can be huge. Free Dropbox e.g. is only 2GB, not even enough for whole of Germany (LoMaps). Sorry, to me that makes no sense.

@Menion: Is that a biggie to add "My purchased items" in the menu on the right?

Push up.

I still think that using cloud space is not a solution.

I see. I can also imagine some feature "Download all my purchased maps" but some maps can be downloaded only once and this is complication. More over it wouldn't cover downloaded online maps, that aren't registered in Locus store at all. For this reason we think about one click update / restore for all content but I know that it also isn't ideal ;/

You're thinking too complicated here - I'm not asking for a "one-click-solution", just for an easier way to see everything I already bought. Simply like the "Check for updates" button, but showing everything I bought at some point, not just the updated stuff. That's already much easier than having to click manually through all categories. As I said, simply making the "My purchase history" items clickable would be enough IMHO.

If something is not free (anymore), I can still decide to not download it - the point is to have an easy way to reach the shop entry.

I know..

Regarding clickable "My purchase history" - do you mean to open detail of purchased map?

No, sorry, I mean the "My history" menu point in the side menu. The I can click on "Purchases" which shows all my purchased maps, but clicking on them just gives me some metainfo - here you should be able to jump to the item entry in the store itself, just like in the "Check for updates", where you can jump to the store.

yes I see. I think that it would be possible but still not ideal. My History is web page that's shown in Locus window. For this reason calling some action into Locus is complicated. For example the page doesn't know what map is already downloaded, etc. But some link into details is definitely possible. Do you have active any subscription? If yes please open My History > Subscription > and tap for example on "MANAGE SUBSCRIPTION" it redirects you to the details of this item.

Sorry, don't have subscriptions, but that already sounds like an improvement. I thought that's a webpage, actually, but I don't think it needs to display any details, just as you say linking back into the item details within Locus would already be a step forward.
