    Correct. You're not supposed to download apps from the Market to a PC. They go straight to the phone.

    Once installed on your phone you can make a backup on your SD card with e.g. the app BackupEverything, and then copy that from your phone/SD card to your PC or Mac for a second-tier backup.
    If worst came to the worst and you would have to reset to factory settings you could then copy it back from your PC or Mac to your phone/SD card and then restore that backup file to your phone.
