I restored my iPhone 5 because I was having a problem with it.

Only my settings/photos were restored from the iCloud backup but then I tried to install iPhoto it prompted me to buy it again. I thought the info of purchased apps is stored in my iCloud account this is BS if one has to repurchase his purchased apps everytime

am I missing anything here? On my previous Galaxy S3 I could completely wipe my phone as many times as I want all purchased apps are stored in my account

I am logged in man. How do I access my previously purchased apps? Is there a place where I can see my previously purchased list of apps from the phone itself?
Open the App Store and select the 'Updates' tab. At the top, click on Purchased. You'll see a list of purchased apps on your iPhone and those which are not.
