    Before anyone asks, I am running iTunes 9.1.1 on a new MacBook Pro. My library is located on a remote network server.

    Here is the issue. My apps folder is not updating. It says there are 5 apps that need to be updated, but they will not update. Additionally, everything that I have purchased/downloaded on the iPad says it is transferring during sync, but never shows up in the list.

    Is this a corrupted library? I have closed and opened the library a number of times, as well as rebooting the remote "server" which is my Mac Mini. One last thing, I use Chicken of the VNC to quit iTunes so I do not think that it is a shared thing.

    Thanks in advance!

    I too see similar issue. I am running iTunes 9.1.0x. I have iPhone with many apps both purchased and free. I also have free and purchased on the iPad. It was my third times plugin and sync with iTunes. Th second sync I didn't pay attention, I just want to back the iPad and walked away. The third sync I added photo to iTunes so I can sync to iPad. What I noticed was. iTunes removed all my apps off the iPad. I was like" what the h%#*? Luckily, most iPad apps is in iTunes, I was able to sync them back to the ipad. But it was mixed with iphone Apps and i had to go through all of them and see which one goes to ipad. I did loose few ipad apps. I think the iTunes is confusing or what ever? This is NOT good. I am afraid to plug my iPhone in now. Did anyone see this also? Did I do something wrong?

    I did not figure it out but I fixed it. :confused:

    I moved everything to a new folder. Basically, I renamed the folder to iTunes_old, created a new folder called iTunes, and then copied all the files from the iTunes_old folder to the new iTunes folder.

    How about calling Apple support? They're really good.

    I've had apps download and not appear immediately in iTunes. It's a generalized bug.

    I fixed my Windows 7 slow syncs, slow appearance of apps in the iPad tab and missing apps by removing the apps from the folder, syncing and adding them bit by bit while dumping those I didn't really want. Worked well.
