i've got my apps synched with itunes but i'm annoyed with how long it sometimes takes to sync (several minutes) when i connect my ipod and would like to unsync them all. one solution which i've tested is obvious: i can unsync an app, itunes will automatically delete it from my ipod and then i can reinstall it and leave it unsynced. the problem is it's a pain in the ass to reinstall every app. is there a way to prevent itunes from deleting an app from the ipod if you unsync it? also, i might want to leave one app, stanza, synched, but if i do so, every new app i download to my ipod will automatically be syched with i tunes, even if i have itunes set to only sync selected apps, so i will have to unsync and reinstall every new app i decide to get. again, that's a real pain. is there any way around this? this is my third ipod, but my first touch, and i just assumed synching, which i've never been a fan of, would work as it did with other ipods, i.e. unsyc the ipod and all the info stays on the ipod. seems like a design flaw to me.
