I use it all the time to back up BB third party and OTA apps.
It's not hard.
Start Desktop Manager (I am using the latest version - 5.0.1). If your BB is password protected it will ask for the password.
Click on Device Switch Wizard, then Switch BlackBerry Devices.
In the options frame (the right side) uncheck EVERYTHING except "Third-party applications".
Click Next. If your BlackBerry is password protected, it will ask for the password.
When asked to "Please connect your new device" click cancel.
The backup of your third party and OTA applications will now be in the %temp% folder, under the name of the device PIN.
