    I just reformatted my PC and re-installed itunes. I plugged in my phone and synced it and backed it up. I do not have an Applications tab anymore in my itunes library - I don't see where it backed up my app's.

    I also do not see my app's listed on the device section (my iphone) on Itunes. The app's are still on my phone, but what if I need to restore??

    Any ideas??

    Right click on the iPhone in iTunes when the iPhone is plugged in and choose recover purchases.

    Disregard, I found it. First I had to "authorize this computer". Then I clicked "file"/"transfer purchases from iphone"

    Hopefully this helps someone in the future.
