Synching Apps

Hey, I'm just wondering how to sync the apps which I've bought on my iPod to iTunes on my computer.
It's on the same account but it doesn't seem to transfer them when I sync my iPod so is there something special which I need to do to get them to go on my computer?

It's mainly so that I'm able to update my iPod because there are a lot of apps on it which I bought on my iPod rather than my computer so they aren't on this yet...

Sorry if this is the wrong section >.<
Any help is appreciated, thanks

Click Transfer Purchases rather than Sync from under the 'File' tab at the top left on iTunes.

Sorry for the double post (I know you can edit but then people who have checked this already probably won't realise)

So... I did as you said and it seemed to work.
However when I try to update my iPod it still says that there are items that haven't been transfered (I've done it multiple times)
Should I just update it anyway.
Thanks

Thank you very much.
So I just click on Encrypt iPod Backup down the bottom and go from there?
Now just one last question.

I have heaps of Apps which I've bought through iTunes on my computer that don't automatically sync to my iPod. Is there any way to get them on there without having to redownload each of them on my iPod?

Thank You!
