OS X Mavericks: Reinstall apps that came with your Mac

Reinstall apps that came with your Mac

If you delete an app, you can reinstall it.

To reinstall:
Option Description
An app that came with OS X (such as Mail or Calendar): Reinstall OS X. Reinstalling OS X doesn’t erase your information.
iTunes: Download it from the Apple Downloads website.
iMovie, iPhoto, and GarageBand: Use the Mac App Store.

If the apps came on a disc, use the disc to reinstall them instead of the Mac App Store.
