iTunes 9.2 Adds Option to Turn off Auto Sync of New Apps

http://www.tuaw.com/2010/06/19/itune...c-of-new-apps/
Quote:
We already told you about iTunes 9.2 being released, but there was a little new feature in there which may have escaped your notice. At the bottom of the list of apps that you can install on your iDevice is a checkbox to automatically sync new apps.

This has been the default behavior of iTunes, but you are now able to turn it off if you don't want apps to be automatically sync'd to your iDevices.
This is a small issue, but anyone who has more than one iDevice on one account may have noticed that whenever any one device adds a new app, iTunes adds it to all the iDevices on that account. In other words, when I first plugged in my iPad...it automatically dumped all my iPhone apps that were on my iPhone onto it as well..and I had to go back and get rid of 90% of them

It's a nice feature, but I wish they had made it more granular. I'd like the option to auto-sync universal and/or iPad-only apps to the iPad while excluding iPhone apps, for instance. Oh well, maybe in 9.3.

Definitely, Trubu!

I'd also like a more reliable "updated apps available" in iTunes, without having to have to check manually all the time (I usually only update thru iTunes, not thru the iPhone or iPad).

i'd like an easy way to tell if an app is for one platform or universal, and i'd like a way to organize and manage them better in iTunes itself. Let's get iTunes some "folders". Ugh. I have some 1500 apps and trying to remember and find something I'm looking for is a total pain.

Not perfect, but I'll take it......

I am one that is is a major improvement for. With 3 idevice on the same computer/iTunes account, this is a time saver. Progress forward, and that is good.

In iTunes, in the App section, there are 3 "view" buttons at the top (in order, L to R): List, Icon, Cover Flow.

If you select Icon (the middle button) all the apps get sorted into various categories, so you can identify which kind they are. Here's mine:

iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad Apps
iPhone and iPod Touch Apps
iPad Apps
iPod Games - iPod Nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generations), iPod Classic, and iPod (5th Generation)
iPod Games - iPod (5th Generation)

Is this what you were looking for?

ahh. thanks. i looked at the icon view once long ago, found it messy, and never went back.

i'd still prefer some way to sort them in list view, or even better let me organize them into groupings of my own. but at least i know what is what.

The first step is admitting that you have an App Store problem.

well after 3 years of the app store, hard not to collect so many. and many many of those are freebies i download once, try, then delete out of my iphone. it's been so long though it's hard to tell what's good and what's junk.

there are a few useful web sites out there that alert you to when there is a price drop or free offering on an app, really handy if they don't have a trial available. then there are a few i've spent a few bucks on and they turn out to be turkeys.

Ask and ye shall receive…

Chose List view (first icon).
Select the View Menu
Choose View Options
Check the "Kind" box
All apps now show what kind of app they are.
