    Hey everyone. I plan on upgrading to an iPad 2, and giving my girlfriend my iPad 1. I've had two iPod Touch's, two iPhones and now my iPad. I have a lot of content in my iTunes and I can't seem to delete apps from 3+ years ago and no matter how hard I try it always wants to sink all my old apps to my iDevices when I sync them on iTunes. I have it set to manual in iTunes, but for some reason it always adds old junk apps to it. I want to start fresh on my new iPad, so I want to clean up the junk on iTunes and then do a backup of my iPad 1. I am very hesitant to plug in my iPad until I know I can delete all my old stuff on iTunes. I'm fairly intelligent with this kind of stuff, but I can't figure this issue out. Any ideas?

    The only mistake I see you making is giving your girlfriend the old iPad instead of showing her how much you love her by giving her an iPad2. Kismet. :rolleyes:

    Haha. She's pumped to get my iPad. It's in perfect shape, so it's basically new to her. Lol.

    in iTunes you can deselect apps you don't want synced to your iPad/iPod/iPhone. They stay in the cloud so you can download them later, again, for free...

    Plug ipad into computer. Once ipad is recognized select 'apps' tab in itunes. A graphic should come up showing your ipad screens. To the left of that are all your apps. Uncheck the ones you don't ever want to sync. Done.
