                So that you can restore all the applications in case your device breaks and you have to
                get a new one.

Once you are finished loading all your programs, connect your iPod/iPhone/iPad to your personal computer/laptop with
the USB cable and run iTunes.
     Then right click the iPhone/iPod touch icon on the left side of the iTunes window
     Click on the Apps tab at the top and check Sync Apps
     Click on the Sync button on the bottom right corner.

This takes a LONG time (20+ minutes) the first time. So you might want to kick this off before you go to bed and leave it
running or do it in the background while you work.

Every time you add an app to your device, you should connect the device to your computer to back up the new app.
