    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.
