    The iPhone automatically backed up every time I synched it but now when I did a full restore it only gave me about a dozen apps backs. Almost none of my paid apps.

    How do I get them back? Am I just screwed and out 100$ in apps?

    If you haven't backed up the original .ipa files (always a good idea!) and/or you don't have them in iTunes, you can re-download them from the App Store. You WILL NOT be charged again for doing so.

    How do you do that, just "buy" the app again and they won´t charge you?

    Yes. You click buy and eventually it'll tell you that you have already purchased the app and ask if you want to download it again (no charge).

    Make sure it's the same iTunes account though.
