    Where's the Apps I downloaded?

    Just got my iPad a couple of hours ago. I setup an iTunes account and purchased a few free Apps. I ran sync, but can't find the new apps on my iPad. What am I missing?

    That is odd. Have you tried swiping the screen, they could be on the next, or are the apps you downloaded compatible with the iPad? Or possible the sync failed?

    Yes, I've tried swiping the screen. The Apps are compatiable, and the Sync indicated it was successful. I tried multiple times with no results. Finally I just did it directly from the iPad rather than using the iTunes on the PC.

    When in iTunes, with you iPad plugged in, click on the name of your iPad. Then click the "Apps" tab at the top of the screen. Scroll through the available apps and make sure that the apps you downloaded have a check mark in the box next to the name. Otherwise they will not synch to your iPad. Or, better yet, click on the box marked "Automatically Synch New Apps" and all the new apps (since your last synch) will be moved over to the device.

    BTW, you should see the new app icons on the first available open page in the iPad apps window to the right of the apps scroll bar. Oh, and you have to have the "Synch Apps" box marked as well.

    An alternative solution

    I did all the stuff above, ticking the boxes and syncing, but my apps still didn't appear on my iPad screen. I had to drag them (on the iTunes devices page referred to above) from the left hand column onto the picture next to it of my iPad screen. I then had to sync or apply (can't remember which).
