    Can apps be installed one at a time or do you have to sync all everytime you add one ? Seems to take forever to stnc all.

    Thanks, Packman

    You must sync when copying apps from your computer, but mobile downloads need not be synced until later. I'm not sure I fully understand you though.

    What I mean is when I get a new app and want to install it can just the new app be installed alone. The only way I see to install the apps is having to sync all .... the backup process takes over 5 minutes alone.

    Right under "Sync All" should be "Sync Selected". Check that box and select what application(s) you want to sync.

    That's how I thought it should work but when I attempt to sync the new apps a message box pops up saying it will delete all other content. Do I have a setting wrong somewhere possibly ?

    That's what you want, right? You want to sync only one third party app. It will remove all the others. You can always get them back.

    Actually I just wanted to add to my existing apps without removing any or having to go through the rather long process. I appreciate the help and info. It just seems a wee bit tedious is all.

    Thanks !! Packman

    Yes, either way, you will sit through a good, long sync and backup. (Though you can skip the Backup).
