How Can I Identify Unused Apps?

Our family has downloaded a zillion apps, many of which we no longer use. I am trying of avoid the tedious task of reviewing all the apps one by one in our iTunes library, and checking to see if anyone is still using each one. Is there any way to easily identify apps in our iTunes library that have not been opened / used, say, in the last 6 months?

    Nope. No way I can think of to identify which apps are being used.
    While it may seem like a tedious task, it could be worth doing. Even if you spend 3 second contemplating each app before hitting the down arrow or the Delete key, you can still plow through 100 in 5 minutes. 600 in a half hour. Do a little each day, maybe.

    I also would like a way to do this. I have my iPhone and iPad as well as both of my daughter's iPods controlled by my iTunes. Between the four devices we have hundreds of apps....some on all four devices, some on just one, some on none. It'd be nice to see from iTunes which apps have no devices using it so that I could elect to delete the app.
