Sync iPad with a new library and not lose apps?
Posted on 2011-09-10
I have an iPad where I deleted an app (Facebook) and now need to reinstall. The problem is that even though the app is uninstalled, I cannot install the App from the iTunes store because the app shows as "installed".
The App shows under settings but as blank with no information. It is in some sort of limbo.
How can I reinstall Facebook?
My next step was going to be to sync it with iTunes which I read has fixed this problem for others.
But, I don't have the original computer the phone was synced to.
Can I try a backup then restore without wiping all of the existing apps?
Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated...
