    I just tried to remove my old Flashlight App by holding down on the icons till they start to shake then I tapped the little x to delete the flashlight app.

    It deleted it from my phone but when I went to Sync my phone it put it right back onto the phone.

    I had to delete it again, and then I had to go into itunes and the app tab and I had to find the flashlight app then i had to tell itunes to remove it.

    I had to click apply then I had to sync again before I could actually delete the App from my phone.

    The behavior you're describing isn't iOS 7 specific. The same thing occurred on iOS 6.

    No, it didn't. When you deleted an app from your phone then synced, iTunes unchecked the app in its device tab, and didn't put them back on.

    Maybe it didn't do it on yours but it certainly did on mine. If I deleted an app on my phone then synced it with iTunes, the app was reinstalled on my phone. I had to choose Remove in iTunes for it to uninstall.

    Is "Automatically install new apps: enable or disabled? If it's enabled, iTunes will do it's best to download apps to your iOS device even after you've deleted them from the device. If it's disabled, deleting apps from the iOS device will work fine and iTunes won't try to reinstall it.

    I have it disabled to better manage what apps go on each device.

    I always disable that option. Maybe it was a glitch in it that caused the behavior though. New apps never automatically installed though.

    It's been like this since the App Store was introduced in iOS 2
