    So I'm running on an SSD in my Macbook Pro, so space is off the essence. I also have a 32GB iPhone + 32GB iPad, and I use a lot of apps. So I have around 20GB of apps on my Mac, since apparently iTunes finds it necessary to store them on my Mac too. Is there a way to make them not keep the files on my Mac or move them somewhere else? When I try deleting them from my Mac it gives me the warning that deleting from my Mac will also delete the app from my iPad/iPhone.

    Help please!

    Thank you

    if you have you apps set to sync than yes that why your getting that warning if you manage you apps manually just delete them you can always redownload again

    Hmmm. Thanks for the reply! Yea, I guess this would work, does this interfere with automatic downloads for iOS at all?
