Does iCloud sync apps?

I know iCloud syncs pictures, but does it also sync apps?? If you download an app on the iPhone does it automatically download on the iPad, for example?

Not as far as I know. And think about it: songs and pics are compatible with all devices and OS versions. Apps aren't.
Also: your iPad/iPhone has the appstore onboard. Why double that with iCloud?
But then again, maybe I'm wrong?

Hmm, not sure about it automagically downloading on another iOS device especially as Jan said, you could have different versions of the app or it might not be iPhone compatible at all.

If I download an app on iPhone or via iTunes then it will appear on the laptop or the iPhone automatically. However, I believe that is wifi syncing doing its thing rather than iCloud.
