seemingly simple question but I have searched and haven't found an answer. How do I delete an app (or anything else) from my touch 2nd gen? Also I'm trying to get an app loaded from my iTunes (on MBP) onto this new touch-can't figure it out. It syncs but still no new app. what obvious thing am I missing here? Thanks.

17" MBP C2D, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

you can delete apps from your Touch by tapping once (and keeping your finger) on the touch screen until the screen goes wobbly. an "x" will appear on the apps and if you tap that, the app will be deleted.

another option is to deselect the app(s) when your device is connected to iTunes, then initiate a sync.

on your home screen, swipe to left to see more screens with apps. or use the search function on the Touch.

    Thanks, i just did it by syncing and then deleting the app, I don't know why I couldn't figure that out the first time I synced it.
    I tried the tapping thing, evidently I'm not adept with that yet!
