I've just discovered that with the newest version of iTunes you can no longer delete apps you don't want.  You used to be able to do so by connecting to to desktop computer and delete them.  Tech support said you can't delete apps anymore.  Not Good!

I've just discovered that with the newest version of iTunes you can no longer delete iPod Touch/iPhone apps you don't want.  You used to be able to do so by going onto iTunes on your desktop computer and deleting them.   Not Good!  I just called tech support and they said that in this version there is no way to delete them. They also said there have been numerous complaints about this.  You can't even delete them from your applications folder.  It's as though you're being held hostage to apps you tried, but do not want.

While we're on the subject, I don't like the fact the the iPod touch comes with unistalable apps such as: Passbook, Nike & iPod, Newsstand, and Game Center. Don't want them, will never use them.  Give customers the option to delete apps that we don't want.  Call Apple's corporate customer care. escalation, and complain untill they fix this.

iPod touch, iOS 6.1, With iTunes 11.01
