I currently have my iPhone 4 to sync all my apps to iCloud and to iTunes. I want to stop it from synching to iTunes however when I uncheck the option in iTunes i get a message warning me "are you sure you dont want to sync apps? All existing apps and their data on the iphone will be removed".

If i uncheck the synching apps in iTunes does that mean once the sync is done all my apps on my iPhone will be gone and if so how would I get them all back from iCloud without having to do a restore from backup?


Thank you
Angelo

If you go to app store in your phone, look In the update section u see in top purchased option. Anything you downloaded either free or paid games, apps ull see there.

right now when i went into the update section it shows which apps are installed and the ones that i dont currently have installed show the iCloud symbol next to them. If I were to remove the option in iTunes for synching apps and then they get deleted from my iPhone, wont all the apps in the update section then have the iCloud symbol? If thats the case would I have to go through them 1 by 1 and remember if I had that app on my iPhone or had deleted it and download them all again?

I suggest starting a new thread for your question to get more views since it isn't applicable to this thread.
