    If you didn't "transfer purchases" before you updated, or synced, the apps would have been removed to I tunes. Make sure to transfer, then check the appropriate boxes in iTunes apps next time you sync. I am a little surprised that iTunes didn't "prompt" you to transfer purchases before it updated for you.
