    I have an iPad 2 and iPhone 4. Both on iOS 5 and iCloud. Both setup to backup directly to iCloud. With the incomming of itunes match I no longer have a reason to sync anything to my computer. The only use for my computer with regards to interacting directly with my idevices is to transfer .avi files using cinexplayer. I would like to uncheck the sync feature of all apps, music, photos, everything.

    Problem is when I attempt to do this, it wants to remove all the apps from my devices. How do i stop this from happening?

    Advice is greatly appreciated!!

    I would let it remove everything, then go to the App Store and re-download the apps from the Cloud.

    Not sure how you would do it with Music, Photos should come automatically in your Photo Stream from iPhoto.

    I don't know anything about cinexplayer. Is this transfer via iTunes? If not you could:
    1) just uninstall iTunes.
    2) set iTunes to not open when your device is connected and ignore itunes

    What I mean is, what's wrong with doing nothing and just never syncing with iTunes again?
