I just brought spore of itunes and I cannot just drag and drop it onto my iphone, so I have to sync it, I have been waiting an hour and it is nowhere near done. Why do I have to delete all my apps and and put them all back on again, just to add one programme.

You don't, normally. I've added a number of programs via iTunes syncing and have had no problems with them installing.

Um, you don't have to delete all you apps or even sync. Just tell iTunes you want to manually manage your Music and Video and drag away. I've been doing it with mine since I bought it.

I have mine set to update automatically and I'm having a similar problem. After I download an application I CAN NOT drag it onto my ipod touch. I tried uplugging my ipod and plugging it back in to sync.. and nothing. How the heck to I get my new Application on there!?

I don't think dragging works unless you have it set to manually manage in iTunes. In automatic sync mode, you'll just need to make sure it's set to automatically sync all apps (or tick the ones you want) and it should install.
