    Welcome to the Forum. I hope you enjoy yourself here.

    Can I clarify some more detail?

    'Reading between the lines' I'm assuming you

    (a) have an iPad1
    (b) it used to iOS 4.2.1
    (c) you've upgraded to iOS 4.3
    (d) apps that you had on your iPad when it had iOS 4.2.1 are no longer there
    (e) you're trying to reload them using iTunes 10.2.1 or similar
    (f) this is not working for some reason

    If this is incorrect, can you let us know? What error message do you see, if any, or does iTunes simply not reload the apps?

    hi Tim, thanks to your fast reply, you're right except that my apps are sitting in the apps on iTunes but are not numbered where it says apps, I have everything up to date, have rebooted my computer and resynched several times but no dice iTunes will simply not reload the apps!

    Do you have a large number of apps? A quick workaround is to download the apps again directly to your iPad - you don't have to pay a second time.

    I'm sure we'll get some other suggestions to 'properly' fix this problem shortly, though.

    Yes I only have 42 which shouldn't be a problem I just need to know how to get them recognised by the synchroniseror whatever it is called, and thank you for your help.

    Have you made sure app syncing is turned on?

    With your iPad plugged in, select it in iTunes under the devices list. Go to the Apps tab at the top and make sure you have Sync Apps turned on. Also make sure the apps you want to sync have checkmarks next to them in the list. Both are needed to get them to sync to the device.

    Other things to check: make sure the computer is authorized under the Store menu, and that you are logged into your account. It should show your Apple ID (email address) in the top right corner of the iTunes store. This needs to be the same account as the one the iPad is associated with.

    I have a similar problem - I have 5 free apps and two purchased apps. I tick all the apps for syncing - press "Apply" but when it is completed syncing the two purchased apps are not on the ipad and are now unticked. I have made sure I am logged into the store and that the computer is authorised. Any ideas?

    Perhaps the iPad is running out of free space?
