How can I manually add an application from iTunes into iPod without syncing all content?

How to add an application in my iTouch from iTunes without syncing all content so that I don’t lose data that is not in iTunes?
This iPod was a gift from a friend of mine and he loaded it with apps he thought I might like. Now I am not sure if I can purchase my own apps without losing what he has already put in there. Plus, I have already downloaded from the Apple store some more apps, but from the iTunes, it does not let me get apps directly.

    Hi there! When you have your iTouch docked, simply double click on your it (in the left menu bar) and modify the settings. If you use "custom" importing, you can set it to just import the newest things you have downloaded. I hope that helps!
