The iTunes content sync is one way: Computer to Phone. If this is a computer other than the one your phone was last synced to, ALL itunes content will be deleted from your phone when you first sync to this computer. If you transfer your content BEFORE you sync, you can select the same content to sync back to your phone.MacBook Pro

All apps on your iPhone should be in your iTunes library on your computer and will be with Sync Apps selected under the Apps tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes, which are stored in a Mobile Applications folder in the iTunes folder.
The computer needs to be re-authorized with your iTunes account with iTunes if you haven't already done so.
With your iPhone connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPhone. MacBook Pro 15" Intel Core 2 Duo/2.53GHz/4GB RAM/500GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 4 32GB
