Apps installed via Installous disappear after iTunes sync

When syncing an iPhone with iTunes, I noticed that several of my apps that I’d… acquired backup copies of… through Installous had vanished from the available applications on the home screen of my phone.

To prevent this from happening, after plugging your iPhone into your computer, simply:

  1. Open iTunes
  2. Click File –> Transfer Purchases from iPhone

Then, the next time you sync, your apps should not be lost.
