I have searched high and low for an answer to this! I have restored my iPod Touch several times...no luck. When I connect it to iTunes, the 'sync' section is grayed out and I cannot check the little box to sync the apps. Their are no restrictions set on the unit and I double checked that. I can sync every other category so I must be missing something. iTunes freezes up when I try to hit the sync box under Apps. What's up with that? Strange. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
