    Ok I am gonna buy a new Iphone4s today and of course i wanna link it to my iCloud account.

    But In my history due to iPods and my first iPhone i got like 200 apps on the cloud and i don't want them to synch them all to my new iPhone.

    So when i get the new iPhone should i should say don't connect to iCloud and sync it later? or is there a ways to tell which app to download from iCloud and which not to?

    You can "hide" apps you don't want to download automatically.

    I've hidden all the apps I've tried and didn't like so I wouldn't see update notices for them. Nor do they show under "Not on this device".

    See iTunes Store: Hiding and unhiding purchases - this can be done from an iOS devices or through iTunes on your computer.

    Of course do this before you get your new phone.
