On a Mac, ~/Music/iTunes/Mobile Applications/ has all your apps. I think it includes apps you've uninstalled, and doesn't include data, but it's a good first approximation. – Ken Nov 30 '10 at 16:18

On iTunes itself, on the App section of your Library (top section in the left side navigation bar) you can see how big Apps are by switching to List view (iTunes menu bar -> View -> As List).

Thanks that helps but I also wanted to find out what data was actually stored with the app on the ipad. I found it in the obvious place, under Apps in the Ipad window in itunes where you can organize your apps. It lets you sort by size as well. – Jason Nov 30 '10 at 21:34

On the iPad If you go to Settings -> General -> Usage and a list of your apps will pop up right there, along with the amount of storage that they're taking up.
