    Mobile Applications

    this is what a regular link would look like,
    (C:\Users\Owner\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications) if this doesn't work for you, then try running a search on one your apps or the mobile applications folder.

    How about try:

    Right Click an app in the Applications Section of iTunes
    Scroll on over to "Show in Explorer"

    Tell me whatcha find.

    Can I delete them from the computer after I've transferred them to my iPod then? Will the apps still run or show up in iTunes if deleted from my computer? I don't have to store them there all the time, do I? Help!

    IF you are still logged on to your itunes account, then you should be able to sync the apps from your ipod onto your computer.

    ....If you want, but it will mean next time you sync you will be asked to copy them back, and if you have problems with the ipod you have to re download.
