My son's computer needed reformatting and all his apps are now on his ipod & not on a computer. Is there a way of syncing apps to computer from iPod. When we tried it seemed to want to erase his iPod.

Did you tried "Transfer Purchases" on iTunes?

1) Open iTunes. Hold down the SHIFT+CTRL keys on Windows or OPTION+SHIFT on Mac while connecting your iPod to your computer and until you actually see your iPod shown in the iTunes list.

2) Now you can use the “Transfer Purchases” function under the "File" menu in iTunes to get all your purchased files from the iPod including music, videos or apps. This will work only with the entire library and you can't use it to select specific files.

There are also commercial applications to transfer all your regular songs and files. I can suggest Copytrans but please read very well what it does as I have not tried this app yet. Feel free to try others.
