After downloading several apps, I then synced. I had it set to not sync apps though since i have a ton from the phone During the sync it said deleting apps. I was like, naaaah...but it deleted all apps. I was able to then manually pick out the apps I had before and resync, but all the app settings were gone. So now I am afraid to sync my phone. I don't get how apple decoupled iPod iPad and iPhone apps.
