    Is anyone having trouble syncing their apps from itunes to ipod? I was able to do it successfully yesterday, but today when I tried to sync some new apps that I got, all the options (ie, sync all, sync selected) under the Applications tab is grey (instead of black) and wouldn't let me pick what apps I wanted to trasnfer.

    Any ideas?

    You need to authorize your computer with your Itunes account

    It is authorized. I checked to make sure and it still doesn't do anything.

    Problems syncing apps - greyed out boxes

    I went to the Genius Bar yesterday. It was the 3rd time I went for the same problem. Someone there finally figured out the simple solution.

    The problem was that my kids' iPod Touches wouldn't sync applications. They were all "greyed" out. It was really annoying. He is the only one, after much time of trial and error, to figure out that I needed to turn off the parental controls, specifically "Installing Apps" and "In-App Purchases" before syncing with iTunes. THEY NEED TO PUT THIS ON THEIR SUPPORT WEBSITE!!!! I have looked for many blogs and support sites and never found this simple solution.
