    If they're not cracked, you can install/sync them directly.

    Use iTunes to install them

    Yup. Can also try ifunbox if it doesn't work for some strange reason. But iTunes should be fine.

    There are some circumstances where people want old versions or even programs that aren't approved for the store (Grooveshark for example).


    To install ipa files without jailbreaking you need to get an Apple developers account and resign the apps with your credentials using something like iResign.

    If you have the old ipa is just a matter of drag and drop it since it was already signed by you.

    I was referring to instances where the update replaced the ipa.

    Ah was not aware that's how it works in OSX, I use Windows for my syncing and they are always removed.

    They get moved to the trash can for windows too. It must be some setting in iTunes that I have that's different

    Guess so. Mine are not preserved in the recycle bin. Maybe it's because my library is stored on a NAS.
