I also want to see them add this functionality to BES wireless backup as well. (Not holding my breath on that one.)
What's even more frustrating to me is that the apps DO get backed up and restored to a new device if you use the Switch Device feature of desktop manager.... so DM already has the ability to back up the applications. It simply doesn't back them up when you do a normal backup.
I will never understand the rationale behind this.
