Click on your device name to open your syncing options, and click the sync button in the lower right hand corner. This will back up all of your apps to iTunes.

Once you've synced your iPhone or iPod Touch apps to the iPad, you can choose to run them in their original size (this option will open up a screen about the size of the Touch screen within your iPad) or you can expand the app so it fits your iPad screen. Most iPhone apps were designed with the minimum screen resolution needed to run smoothly in an iPhone sized screen, so by expanding the app to fit the 9.7 inch screen of the iPad, you may find that the picture quality is sacrificed. Fortunately, developers are already working to create apps with a screen resolution that matches the iPads dimensions.
