To reinstall apps from the web
Open a web browser and go to www.windowsphone.com.
Navigate to the My Phone dropdown menu, located in the upper-right
corner of the screen, then sign in with the same Windows Live ID
you've used on your phone.
In the My Phone menu, click Purchase history.
Under Purchase History, find the app you want to reinstall and click Reinstall.
Follow the instructions to reinstall the app. You might have to
re-enter your Windows Live ID.
Clicking on the reinstall link failed until I changed a phone setting to on: Settings:find my phone:Connect to these features faster (may use more battery)
Clicking on multiple "Reinstall" links appears to stack requests, but seems to cause communication overloads. Better to take more time and do individually. At least failures are reported to the screen.
