    I want to sync other stuff but not the apps. Every time I sync the damn apps iTunes rearranges every damn app I have and it drives me up the wall.

    But if you uncheck "sync apps" then it tells you it wants to delete all of them from your iPad.

    Is there any way around this?

    Are you using a Mac or PC to sync with?

    PC, Vista x64...I'm jailbroken too if that helps...probably what is causing the issue, although honestly this happened to a lesser extent BEFORE I jailbroke. Freakin' iTunes.

    Up until the last year I used a PC (and still do for numerous tasks) but I started syncing using a Mac and have found it to be more reliable. I haven't had any problems with my apps getting moved around, probably has nothing to do with Windows, but thought I would get that info out there in case someone else can help more. I actually found it more convenient to arrange them in iTunes, but I do move a new app around to the right screen once in a while.

    No, but you said it was being wacky before you jail broke it too though, right?

    And I'm considering jail breaking it. Never did my phone, that was too necessary, but if the iPad was down for a day, I could live, not happily, but live nonetheless. The idea of SNES simulator sounds awesome.

    Yes, it did screw it up but not as often.

    Having the same issue. Only the apps from ins
    tallous are getting deleted which does make sense.

    Any ideas?

    I've moved my applications from the iTunes directory (subfolder Mobile Applications) to a slave drive including any new ones added as they are added and this not only saves HD space but also gives one message on iTunes to which you reply no.
