    So, I've bought four apps from the app store (using my PC), and I've received four IPA files.
    I moved these into the iTunes library, and checked the "Sync Applications" box, then pressed sync.
    Everything runs through, it says installing apps, it even has them on the screen that organizes the apps, but when I check the iPod, the apps are not there. On any page.

    I have a Jailbroken iTouch, 3rd generation 8GB.
    Can anyone possibly give me any ideas on what I should do?

    You Should have had to move the apps into your itunes library if you bought them. Is there something your not telling us?

    It's obvious he's using cracked IPA's.. You need to move them from your downloads folder to your iTune's library and or folder.

    Staff, I'd send him a message and delete the topic.

    No, I've bought the apps.
    I've been aple to install them directly from my iTouch, and that worked, but it's faster doing it from my PC.
    I have the apps on my iTouch now, but it's still not letting me sync any up when I try from my PC. Is there anyway I can show you I've bought the apps?

    Why were you talking about importing .ipa's?

    Because when I press the button to buy it, the app goes into my desktop as an IPA file, and has the little iTunes icon.
    I thought it was a music file at first (because of the itunes icon setting), so I opened it, and it brought me iTunes up, where I realized I needed to drag the files to the library

    That shouldn't happen.. when you buy them from the iTunes Store, they go directly to your Application section.. Take screenshots

    I have a feeling you're lieing because unless your library is your desktop then it shouldn't have done that.

    They are obviously cracked apps. You cant set your desktop as your library folder. It simply is not possible. Then all your music would be there as well. Anyway, even if you DID it would get saved to mobile applications folder. Don't believe this guy one bit.
