    Should of bought it on your phone. Probably can still download it there since you paid for it.

    Just buy it again on your phone. It will see that you've already paid for it and download it for free.

    If you do sync, it shouldn't reorganize anything. If you already have the app on both the computer and iPhone, it won't do anything except backup apps' data and its location [on a page and/or folder] on the iPhone.

    The other option: just download the app again on the iPhone. It will simply say you've already purchased the app and ask if you want to download it again for free.
