When I initially synched my iPad, I decided to sync all my iPhone apps as well (i regret it now). I was able to remove the apps after unchecking 'Sync Apps' and synching again. However, I am still seeing all the old iPhone apps on this list. Is there any way to remove these apps from appearing on this list. Ideally, I only want to see my iPad apps that I have on my iPad to be showing up on this list. Please help. Thanks.

    Open iTunes with your iPad connected. When it appears in the sidebar select it. Click on the Apps tab in the iTunes main window. Uncheck the apps you don't want synced, then click on the Apply button.

    Yes, the iphone apps did get removed after doing this. However, they still show up in iTunes. Is there any way I can remove this from the iTunes iPad app list (even though they are not installed)?

    Sure. Select the Apps item in the sidebar. All your apps will be displayed. They will be grouped into iPad only, iPod and iPhone only, and Universal. Just select an app and press Delete or CTRL- or RIGHT-click and select Delete from the contextual menu.

    You will be asked if you want to remove the app. If you click the Remove button then you will be asked if you want to remove it from the listing or if you want it removed from the iTunes database. If you choose the latter then it's deleted from your hard drive. Otherwise it's retained in the iTunes database but not listed.

    Not at this time - it appears they will need to add that feature to iTunes so you can turn off iPhone-only apps in the iPad Apps listing/configuration.

    What is the item? You said it's NOT an app. Is it displayed on the ipad screen? If so, try holding your finger on it until it wiggles, then clicking the x on the icon.

    If not, explain exactly what it is...
