I recently replaced my iPhone.  My most-recent backup to my PC did not include some apps that i had purchased from the iPhone.  How do I get these apps to my new phone?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4

    Apps are never part of the backup because they should be in your iTunes library. They are associated with your account, so syncing after restoring the backup should put them back on the phone. If it doesn't you can use the App Store icon on the phone; Go to the Purchased screen and tap "not on this phone" to redownload them.
