    The best way is to probably make a backup of your old device then with the new device restore from the backup. Not only will all the Apps be transfered (assuming the Apps are compatible with the Firmware on the new device which it should as you are transfering to another 4th Gen with most likely the exact same firmware) but you will also keep all your save files for any games you have.

    Yes. I just did this yesterday with a virgin machine. It now looks exactly like the one I destroyed over the weekend.

    Hook it up to iTunes and restore from your latest backup.
