How do I transfer apps from my device to my computer?

iExplorer lets you transfer and backup your iOS app data, but to transfer the apps themselves (the IPA files), you would need to use an import feature in iTunes. Here's how:

1. Open iTunes and connect your device.
2. Make sure you are signed in to your iTunes account / Apple ID using the Account menu (formerly the Store menu).
3. Click on iTunes File menu > Devices > Transfer Purchases from "device name".
