Hello.

I just received my new iPad and when I plugged in to my iTunes, it imported all the app that I have from my iPod.

There is any way to set witch apps are going to be in my iPad and witch app are going to be in my iPod?

Thank you.

    Yes.

    With the iPad connected, select it in the iTunes left panel. Then go to the Apps tab for it and just un-check those apps you don't want loaded in your iPad.

    In the iTunes Apps tab, check the apps you want synced, uncheck the apps you don't want synced.

    It's not so easy. You cant see which apps for iphone and which for ipad. It's very annoying. Apple needs to reorganaize app section in iTunes!

    It is that easy. Plug in your iPad to your computer. If you are set to synch automatically you will have to wait until this completes (auto synching can be turned off). In iTunes, in the Devices list, select your iPad. Within this is where you select the applications tab. Here is where you can check/uncheck which apps you do/do not want to synch with your iPad.

    Let Apple know...

    Actually, I understand what you are saying -- those with lots of Apps (like I had close to a hundred for my iPhone) can't always see which Apps are for iPhone and which are for iPad -- their icons are identical, and their names are identical when you look at them on the App tab.

    Another work around is to just let everything sync the first time. Then go to your iPad and delete the apps you do not want on your iPad by press-and-holding the icon until they start to jiggle and you get the little X's in the corner. You can delete them from the iPad -- and that will remove them from further sycing down the road.

    A pain, yes it is. And I agree that it would be more convenient if there was some way to indicate which Apps are iPhone and which are iPad when it is the same program with the same name and same icon....but you only have to go through that hassle one time. It took me all of 7 minutes to get rid of all my duplicates and resync.
