Blackberry Desktop Software Manager backs up PlayBook data and creates a BBB file. The bbb file is a zip archive, and it contains not only PlayBook app data, but also application binaries. The apps specifically are not stored in the BBB or IPD files.

The apps will be in your BlackBerry AppWorld for you to re install from, or just use BlackBerry AppLoader to restore them.

If you want to backup your PlayBook apps then 3rd party apps is a choice in BBDM. You generally use the Apploader to restore your apps. The Desktop Manager and/or the AppLoader specifically can save the apps. Application data database will contain all downloaded BlackBerry PlayBook applications if you back it up or restore. If this database is not backed up the applications downloaded to the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet can still be retrieved from BlackBerry AppWorld.
