I am looking for a way to prevent iTunes from synching app to the iphone.
Current situation: I only back the iphone up with iTunes - icloud backup is not feasible to me - and connect it to iTunes a couple times a week. During this time I add/delete apps on iphone: every time I synch it to iTunes it will copy every new apps AND install app that were present the last time I synched but have now been deleted.
How I wish it would behave: every time I synch I would like only the app data to be backed up and the apps left alone. Plus, I would like to regain the 4-5 gb of space that the useless ipa files are using in the main drive.
