I have a bunch of large apps that don't all fit on my iPad.  I keep them on the computer and iTunes keeps them updated.  Only now if I connect the iPad to the computer and try to install one, iTunes tries to install every app that's not on the iPad.  Needless to say, they don't all fit.  What am I doing wrong?  At first, it seems to allocate the correct amount of space on the iPad for the app.  Then, within five seconds, it decides to put everything on the iPad.  Help.

Any reason you don't just manage it entirely from the iPad? Delete what you don't want, and download what you do want?

This is a rhetorical question, isn't it?

I can and do, but I'd like iTunes to do what it promises and function as a library manager.  I've also had big installs crash my iPad after downloading.  I've had one crash that required wiping and restoring the iPad.  At least, iTunes managed that.  Though even then I ended up with some extra icons.

I don't remember exactly how you get there, but there should be an area on iTunes where you indicate what you do and don't want to have on the iDevice.  Maybe there's some kind of "manually sync" or "manually choose" option you have to select?

While this won't be a helpful response, I had iTunes do pretty much the same thing - it tried to dump everything I had on my iPad onto my iPhone when I plugged them both in to back them up.

...despite the iPhone having half the space my iPad has.

It's very...stupid at times.

I've grown to love apple products but that is true.

If you go to the apps tab in itunes when your device is connected you should be able to designate what you want or dont installed.
