    Hi Nael - despite your two brief posts above, your intentions remain unclear to me? The first post states a 'folder of apps' - of course, you know that iOS apps do not run on Mac OS X - you can back up the apps using iTunes (or iCloud or both, as I do).

    Then, your 'corrected' second post states a 'folder of websites' - what do you mean by that? I'm assuming you have a folder of bookmarks to websites that you want to get into Safari on your iMac - now this is a wild guess, so you need to aid us or maybe some of our seers here w/ magic balls can help - ;) Dave

    You can sync all your bookmarks, including the folders you created in Safari, to Safari on the iMac, if you use the same iCloud ID on both devices. They'll automatically appear there.

    If you created a folder with bookmarks on one of your homescreens: those won't sync to the iMac. The folder is saved to your iPad locally.
