    Hi
    I apologize for asking this, I want to make sure of what needs to be checked / unchecked so apps are not re-installed.

    When I sync my Ipad, there are 69 apps that want to install and I thought I have everything checked / unchecked correctly.

    Why are these apps wanting to install?

    Here is a video of the preferences. Are the proper things checked / unchecked?

    Note (as seen in the video) . . . Should this option under 'devices' . . . (prevent Ipods, Iphones, and Ipads from syncing autopmatically)'
    . . . be checked or unchecked? (question 1)

    On the device, you uncheck 'automatic downloads' under Settings > Itunes and App Stores . . . Is this right? (question 2)

    When I bought Ipod Touch, I didnt know about syncing. I would organize my apps on the device time and time again. But now I know, that "Itunes is like a mothership. However Itunes organized, it will be synced on your devices"


    Thank you for the help

    Those apps are downloading to iTunes on your computer, not to your iPad. It's normal for this to happen during a sync.

    Thank you for making that clarification.

    It downloaded 69 apps and the App total went from 469 (before the sync) to 403 (after the sync). Why did the number go down?
