It is helpful if you have multiple IOS devices. In that case you can download the app once to the Mac and sync to the devices locally (not online) saving a little bandwidth. It is certainly not a big deal, but since that is the way I work, I find it useful.
This video was most helpful to this tech-challenged geezer. Precisely what I was looking for. Keep up the good work.
This was great Gary. I would like(at your convenience) to get a further explanation maybe Cloud vs. Computer snyc or backup.
I have wondered this as well. I currently have my iphone being backed up to icloud, but it says 'back up the most important data to icloud', so I'm not sure what it is not backing up and if that is important to me or not.
It shouldn't be backing up things that can be replaced: your apps, your music, your photos -- at least the photos synced from your Mac/PC. You can see a list here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4859
Really helpful. Good luck on getting iTunes to to feature your good work.
I would like to know how to permanently get rid of an app.
Delete it from all of your iOS devices and then delete it from your Mac's iTunes library.
It has never been clear to me what's the purpose of syncing the apps on your iDevices with iTunes on your iMac. The apps work only under iOS, where you get all the updates. In case you want to re-install an old app that was removed from an iDevice, you can always do it through the App Store directly. The only reason that I see is that iTunes warn you that any app not synched will be removed from the iDevice. That's very annoying and I would like Apple delete this feature in the future.
