Hello Scott Gillespie
If you removed them from iTunes, then you will need to download them again. You can do that by following the steps in the article below.
Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
All apps that you did not remove from iTunes (App page), so including the apps that you uninstalled on your iPhone but not removed from iTunes are still in the App list, and can be clicked "install".
Look in iTunes/Preferences/Advanced, there you see where your Library is, go there and in the iTunesMusic folder you will find the Mobile Applications.
Sorry for the delay in responding - I think I follow what you are saying and your reply suggests that something is amiss.
Following your instructions and going to my iTunes Library the mobile applications folder shows roughly 450 applications that I have downloaded.
The challenge I have is tha the window that you are referring to (click install) only shows 30 or so. In fact the window doesn't even show some of the application that I have on the device - for which I would expect a "uninstall" button option.
I am glad to see that the application have not been lost but I am very curious why the window that used to be the center of how I install and uninstall application from my devices now shows only a small fraction of what the true options should be.
Thanks for your help.
When you have the iPhone connected there are TWO lists:
one in the Navigation Panel, that serves as a history, and there you can "remove" apps that are no longer relevant. Rightclick on aa app and you see what you can do.
the second when you click the iPhone icon and the Apps tab: that page let's you see what is and was on the iPhone, there you can remove and install.
Some further explanation:
List one that I mentioned has all the apps that are in the "mobile applications": when you delete them there you loose them.
I make a backup copy of that folder every quarter to make sure that I do not loose when the unspeakable happens...
Funny is that on list one there is a figure that is not the total number (click the list and you see that they are all 450 there) but what is on the apps page.
A lot of those apps will not be available any longer in the appstore, but you still have hem, even when uninstalled!
