Transferring Applications

I have successfully transferred all of my apps from iPod touch to iPad. A few don't work and a couple didn't transfer at all. those problems I can solve. What I don't know how to do pertains to an app that has a lot of stored data. the application transferred just fine, but none of the data. None of this data was ever transferred to a web site. I can, of course continue to use the iPod Touch for this, but would prefer Ipad. Anyone have any suggestions?

The data is stored on your Ipod Touch, not iTunes. The app resides on iTunes without data pertaining to whatever you did you the particular device. It would be nice to transfer it all from one to the other but I doubt that's going to happen any time soon.

If you set up as new you are good to go and then pick and choose what you want from your library, if you restore from iphone backup it will duplicate your iphone (to the degree of compatibility) on your iPad. In either scenario you won't lose data in your iTunes. Just also be sure to name your ipad differently that way when you sync you can have your own settings as to what copies and what doesn't on anygiven time. I sync my son's ipod and my ipad on the same pc same log in.. His is set up totally different from mine yet we share a few apps... if he syncs it doesn't nothing to mine. :)

Umm not really,the apps are stored in iTunes but the backup holds everything including the settings and inapp data,now if you want to carry off your data from the apps say from iPhone 4 to iPad then you will have to restore from the iPhone 4 backup,simple sync is like installing new apps and copying off certain independent files such as music video photos but the inapp data such as login info and settings of tweekdeck for instance From iPhone or iPod can only be copied exactly to iPad by first taking a backup of iPod/iPhone and then restoring that backup into an iPad with tweetdeck,now once done you'll find exact settings and username/password used in iPhone/iPod is also exactly there in the iPad. But remember that such restore often cause instability and data loss too,so look before you leap and don't cry later.

Thanks :)
