So everytime I sync my iPad to my computer, I am having an issue where apps I've downloaded on my iPhone sync to my iPad. There are certain apps that I only want on my iPhone and also only certain apps I want on my iPad. For instance, I want Square Register on my iPad, but I do not want Square on it. The difference being Square is simpler iPhone version whereas Square Register is the fully-functioning iPad version. I dislike having to delete these apps everytime I sync up (I don't like clutter).


Can anyone advise me on how to control which apps sync to my different devices? Thanks!
