I have an iPad (used to have an iPhone), and obviously have loads of apps on my iMac. I use iTunes for music, movies, apps etc and like it. However, every few days there are loads of app updates, as tbh iTunes is now used for streaming, to my Apple TV, iPad etc. I update the apps on my iPad direct, buy more on my iPad etc. With all the apps available for re-download from iTunes store, why does iTunes in my iMac need to download and store them on my HDD? eg if I needed to re-download an app, Its quicker to just get it direct from the iPad, than sync. Why does it need to stay on my iMac, could it not just have a link to the apps, rather than the full apps stored on there? For music, yes I agree, it better on my iMac, as I can listen while I work, etc, but I cant use the apps on my iMac anyway so why should they be stored on there and take up space, when they are available in the cloud? anyone?
