    I just synced my iPad. I love how my iPhone syncs any Apps i've downloaded for it, off the computer - however. . .my iPad copied over all my iPhone apps. . .even though I'm sure there are dedicated iPad versions.

    Can I set the iPad to sync only iPad Apps I download off the store automatically, as opposed to manual (because automatic means it syncs, even my iPhone apps to iPad).

    Thanks :(

    Just go to the Apps sync page in iTunes and uncheck all the iPhone apps. The apps are nicely divided on that page into Apps that are universal (and for iPad too) and those that are iPhone and iPod Touch. When you sync again - all the iPhone ones will be gone. It's easy enough also on your iPad to remove and app (just hold the icon down until it quivers and a black x appears - then touch the x and it's deleted from your device (and will be unchecked in the sync tab).
