    So I recently reinstalled my OS for a fresh start and updated iTunes, etc. All of my apps are still on my phone, but if I go to the "sync apps" tab, none of them are there. I was under the impression it would re-sync from the most well-backed up place. How do I get all my apps recognized in iTunes again?

    Your back up was deleted when you clean installed OS X - you need to sign into your iTunes account, then go File -> Transfer Purchases from "iPhone" to get your apps back onto your Mac.
