[Edit: Updated to r2, see the changelog at the bottom of this post for details!]

The Play Store is great, but it really annoys me that I can no longer see a list of all my purchases on my device. This USED to be possible of course, but they removed the 'not installed' list in an update somewhere along the line. Rubbish.

Sooo.... i've retrieved a version of the Store with this feature and hacked it about to make it install alongside the regular Play store. :)

The APK can be downloaded below - you need to push it to /system/app and chmod it to 644. This is very much in testing - please let me know how you get on. [note: edited, I recommend pushing to /system/app on all devices now.]

Oh, you probably also want to turn off the update notifications in this version or you'll get duplicates!

Enjoy! :)

Works fine on my HTC One X (CM9). I dropped it in to /system/app just in case I had problems.

Thanks again Paul, this was a feature I missed from the old Play Store :(

Excellent Paul. I tried the apk on the SGS3 but it would just f/c so i installed it to /system/app and it worked perfectly.

Many thanks :)

Installed on N1 running cyanogen 7 and it seems to work, but then simply gets stuck at the "loading" bit after allowing account access.

Yeah, very handy, thanks Paul!
Working great on both HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy Tab (P1000), both with CM9.

Same observation applies: you must push it to /system/app/, otherwise it force-closes, as @jamoiholland noticed earlier.
In my case, at first run, it also found updates to Google Play Music and Google Play Movies, which were not detected by the original Play Store (country policy, I guess).
Thanks again.

Running Samsung epic touch 4g with EL29 gingerbread 2.3.6 rooted. I copied to /system/app with root explorer. Downloaded connectbot and ran using local. Su then accept root with super user. Followed last two lines of djfoo000's instructions then rebooted. Didn't use adb. Works fine now.

Just great! Thank you very much :)
I have a Galaxy Note with ICS (XXLQ3), only rooted but with the original kernel (so this is a secure kernel - afaik adb remount doesn't work on secured kernels, but I was too lazy to check) and the regular install was producing FCs, so I used Stericson's Remount to mount the /system as RW, copied the apk, chmod 644, rebooted and everything works!
Again thank you Paul!
