Hi everyone,

 

I've got an iPod touch.mmy iPhone 5 is on its way here. I'd like to transfer SOME of my apps to my iPhone, but not all. Is there any way to do that? My iPod's got a lot of junk on it, so I really just want to transfer a few key things (Clear, Where's my Water,  Cut the Rope, you know, important stuff!) to my iPhone along with their data.  How can I do this?


iPod touch, iOS 5.0.1

    Transfer the data from your iPod Touch using an iTunes backup, not an iCloud backup, as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2109.  When you restore your phone to the iTunes backup your apps will not all automatically be downloaded to your phone like they are when you restore to an iCloud backup.  Instead, when done restoring to your iTunes backup, you can go to the Apps tab of your iTunes sync settings and check only the apps you want on your phone and then sync.
