    Right click her iPhone and select "Restore from backup". You'll then have the option to restore it from her 4S backup. Or you could fully restore her iPhone to start from the beginning.

    If the apps aren't saved in her iTunes, then they won't be restored with the backup. It only keeps the data from them, not the app itself.

    However, she can download them again, without having to pay for anything again. They stay in her iTunes account.
