    I two apps over 20 mb that i want to transfer to my ipad. This is my first time doing this and still on the original os from ipad 1 and have not done a backup yet either. i noticed the apps section is greyed out, not sure what i am doing wrong. I tried it on WI-FI, the apps that are smaller already on the IPAD show check marks but I am unable to check the ones in the list i want.

    Are you sure you're on WiFi? Apps over 20MB cannot be transferred using 3G.

    Yes - it's a bizarre limit imposed by Apple. There's no way to bypass it so, if you're downloading apps, video, music etc directly to the iPad then - if it's larger than 20MB you'll have to use WiFi.

    Made sure IPAD was on WIFI also, no change. Apps still showing greyed out, not sure how to get these over to my pad.Can IPAD apps be downloaded to MAC and then transferred from MAC to IPAD.
