    Of course I watched your video, several times, to be sure what you wanted to know.

    I can't find an answer why these three apps didn't appear on your screen. You're sure you didn't download them before? In that case they were already on your iPad.

    I have two devices, but I don't use iTunes to sync them. As AQ_OC said - I use it for backup and restoring.

    Hi
    It doesnt matter about why they didnt download.


    Why didn an app like 'pimp my sound' reinstall?
    Where do I turn off 'automatic downloads'? On the device(s)? I just want to make sure

    I could just go into Windows Explorer to remove unwanted apps but sometimes the app's names dont always match the app

    Thank you for the help ;-)

    Turn off Automatic Downloads on your iPad in Settings - iTunes & App Stores.

    I suppose the app reinstalled, because you synced your iPad with iTunes and didn't turn off Automatic Downloads before syncing.
