    How do you have your iTunes set to sync apps - all of them, or just the ones you choose?

    OK try rebooting the phone, then try the reverse uncheck sync apps in iTunes and do a sync then select sync apps and select just one app. If the one app syncs then select all your other apps. If no dice select sync apps and sync when the app is deleted sync again and see if the app returns or stays deleted. Also do you have categories installed? If all this fails you can try Re-JB and see if that helps.

    no dice, still deleting my apps... its cool tho i switched to another app that i posted here somewhere but the mods must have deleted it.

    its called pc suite or something for iphone but it lets me manage everything, and i mean everything. i can add apps, pics, contacts, read my txt on my pc etc this appz is literally amazing and the back up is great as well...

    i'd much perfer this app over itunes and its allows you to download apps to your desktop and install them without all the ssh non-sense...

    i believe iTunes won't sync JB apps. not without the help of apps like AptBackup. download it and do a BackUp. then next iTunes sync it should retain all your JB apps.

    don't let the bad experience of 1 other iphone user deter you from adding music, installing apps, JB, etc, etc. the iPhone IS afterall an iPod too. to not add music just because someone has issues with their iTunes is rediculous.
