    What you have to do is restore your iPod from an iTunes backup on your old computer or from your iCloud account. Then, go into iTunes on your new computer and turn off Apps syncing.

    - You can only sync with one iTunes library/one computer. If yo sync with another library/computer the iPod gets erased and its contents replaced with what is in the iTunes library of the new computer.

    - Redownad iTunes purchases by

    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

    - Go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices and see if there is a backup listed when you first conned the iPod to the computer.  If there is then restore from backup with the iTunes purchases in the library

    - If not that backup you can restore from iCloud backup if you have one.

    - If no iCloud backup than you only alternative to get your apps data back is to go to the old computer and get the back  file and place it on the new computer and restore from backup.
