You really have to de-select all of the iPhone apps manually when syncing? Does anyone see a way to filter only iPad-native stuff, or are we going to have to wait for iTunes 9.2?
Well that's basically what I did, but note that there's no 'check/uncheck all' option that I can see, either, so you're still clicking through all of them.Why don't you deselect everything to sart and then only check the iPad apps yourself, since there are a lot less of them.
There is an uncheck all option. I think if you click a checkbox while holding either ctrl or shift... one of those worked. Then I just added the apps I wanted. Hope this helps.Bad assumption I think. I have 1399 apps in my itunes. I keep a few hundred on my iphone. I only want ipad apps on my ipad with only a few that are iphone only. It took me almost 2 hours to go through all of them and manually uncheck all the ones I didn't want.
What made it worse is that I had already downloaded about 50 ipad apps in itunes. The only way to know which ones were for the ipad in the app check/uncheck sync list was to manually go to the main app list where it shows you which are ipad native and write all the names of the ipad apps down. I was then able to find them in the app check/uncheck sync list.
Ideally I would like an option for ipads to only automatically sync new ipad apps. The apps i download for my iphone 95% of the time I will only want them on the iphone.
This is the first release of itunes for ipad so I am sure they will improve this over time... I sure hope so anyway.
I was actually glad this works the way it does and not forced to loose graphics. I also like the ability to zoom if I desire too.I just deleted all my iPhone apps after it synced them and haven't had a problem. I do have to say though the iPhone apps look absolutely horrible on the iPad I deletednthem all because I consider them unusable.
It is command and clicking on the checkbox, but thank you so much for this tip. I was going crazy having to click them all to deselect.There is an uncheck all option. I think if you click a checkbox while holding either ctrl or shift... one of those worked. Then I just added the apps I wanted. Hope this helps.
