    so like the dumbass i am today i deleted all my apps on itunes as i needed harddrive space on my macbook. i didnt realize that trough syncing itunes would delete all my apps, i thought it would just transfer the apps on my iphone to my macbook. THEREFOR I LOST ALL APPS,MUSIC VIDEOS EVERYTHING :( So my iphones a gonner but i still want to save my ipad. I need to update it but im afraid itll take all my apps,music, videos like iphone sync did. is there anyway that i could transfer the apps from my ipad to my mac and not have any taken off? REALLY NEEEEEEED HELP THANKS :)

    Use the transfer purchases function.

    You can still get your apps back just Download them again in iTunes, it will look like it will charge you, but once you click buy it will say you've already purchased and allow you to get it again. Doesn't work for music and videos tho.

    There is a program called PodtoPc and now Podtomac that takes music back off ipods/phones and iPads and puts them back in Itunes.

    You have to pay for it $30-$40, but worth it if your music is worth a whole lot more!
    You need to sort out album art etc again but it doesn't take too long.

    Worth a try if you have your music on your ipad. I think it takes the videos as well now and might possibly be free for your first use.

    It has saved me twice a long time ago on my laptop. (long story!!!)

    Don't waste your money on some random music recovery program.. I have used Senuti and never had an issue grabbing songs off my iOS devices:


    It's free, fast, and did I mention that it is free?

    EDIT: It was free when I started using it.. now there is a trail for 1000 songs.. shouldn't have an issue unless you have more than that. If you do, PM me...

    Now if only i'd thought to use the forums when I had my issues!
    Good to know that there are reliable free progs out there.
