I wish they'd do a simple "my apps" section of the apps store--I have so many apps it's hard to keep track of also, and remembering whether I own the iPad or the iPhone version makes matters even that much more complicated.
Seems Apple would rather you forget and download something new than browse your own apps.
One thing I noticed about the iPad app store is that it will in fact indicate if you own an app when you come across it in the store, something the iPhone nor Touch do. Very odd. In any case the 'My Apps' of the Android Market is just awesome sauce. Little things like that make me wonder how iPhone/Touch users really think it is as amazing and easy to use as it is when something like that would be a godsend in iOS. Oh well, what they don't know can't hurt them I guess....All I know is when I upgrade my Android phone later in the year, once I sign into the phone all my apps and settings (Bookmarks, web history, email, apps, WiFI settings etc) will simply download within 15 min to the new device without the need of a PC. Viva la cloud.
Actually, why the hell would you even want to sync apps with your PC? I mean, what purpose does it serve? It's not like you're going to be running the apps on the PC? Note: I'm sure there is a perfectly valid reason for doing so, I just don't know what it is
It's so damn silly. I have never used iTunes to restore my crap, it is faster just to log into the app store and reinstall it from there - Meandering around looking for everything individually.
Oh and I know about the whole syncing options, but still...WTF would I want to sync music I had copied from my PC in the first place? WHY AM I SYNCING AT ALL? I used to get messages from iTunes where it was going to DELETE crap from my device simply because I had not synced it prior. Are you serious? Why would I want to deal with this type of BS?
Anyway, since you can sync music and movies without iTunes, and you apparently don't need to sync apps either, I'm not sure what all the bitching is about iOS devices requiring iTunes. Sure, there's OS updates, but it's not like you're having to plug in several times a week for that. It seems like an ideological argument rather than a practical one, kind of like bitching about Apple's walled garden, when a jailbreak solves that problem in about 5 minutes.
You know, the custom rom thing is a slightly valid point - but 350,000 new Android users a day are not using custom roms and they are getting by just fine.

I just don't get all the syncing BS. Probably because I find it unnecessary.
