    I have noticed some very annoying behaviour: Any app purchased from the iPhone will NOT appear in my iTunes library after synching.

    The only workaround I can see is to download apps only from within iTunes.

    Another big annoyance: if I delete an app from the iPhone, it will copy itself over again each time I sync with iTunes, until I delete it from iTunes.

    Why have the ability to delete apps on the iPhone if it doesn't actually delete the app?

    I have found a workaround in another thread: in iTunes, right click on the iPhone device and select "Transfer Purchases."
