    The iPod Touch backup has that info. You have to restore from its backup.

    If you plug your new iPhone into the same computer that your ipod touch is used with, (as long as your ipod touch has been synced recently) it will ask you if you want to restore your iphone from your ipod's backup. Click yes and it will take all of the settings and apps from your ipod touch and sync them to your iphone.

    Probably because you've already synced the iPhone. Follow these instructions under "Restoring your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch" to restore the iPhone from the Touch backup:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414

    This will copy all the apps, contacts, settings, etc. from the Touch. But, be aware that you'll lose any changes you've made to the iPhone since you've had it. A lot of apps have a way of backing up or exporting their data. Maybe the app you're using can do that. That might be easier than restoring the phone.
