    Folks - I am a newbie when it comes to the Apple products. I have had my iPhone4 since last August and just got the iPad2 on launch day. I hardly ever sync my iPad2 however i did when 4.3.1 came out and I noticed a lot of my apps for the IP4 are now on my IP2.

    Is there a setting or something I am missing that I need to keep my app's separate between these 2 devices? I will start going through itunes to see if I see any settings outside of checking the boxes for the apps to appear on a device.

    If there is a thread that outlines this somewhere that will work as well. I did a quick search but didn't find anything.

    Pretty sure that if you go to the page of iTunes that shows the device you currently have synched theres a tab there that allows you to select the apps you want and breaks them down iphone/ipad. Dont have my usb cord available so I cant do it to give you better directions but you can probabl figure it out.

    There should be an "Automatically sync new apps" checkbox on the Apps page for each device when connected to iTunes.

    Each time you sync a device with iTunes it is copying installed apps from the device to iTunes. With this option enabled for a device, you're getting apps from the other device when you sync. Disable the option and you shouldn't have to worry about apps added on one device getting added on the other device.

    You can also use the Apps tab to manually control which apps are installed.
