    I say all developers compile their apps in to an ipa so iTunes will backup everything. No more var mobile library!

    you guys are wrong.

    .app = the directory extension for applications on any os x PC/mobile device(ex: ipod, iphone)

    .ipa = a compressed package containing the application directory (.app), metadata to display in itunes, and security info for itunes to verify your account.


    the only different is IPA is for installing via iTunes.
