You can also create backup of apps using File Expert file manager app.
How to backup Android Apps and save them to APK file -
there is a backup feature in ASTRO File Manager, you can use it to backup installed applications, i think will create the respective apk file in backup folder.
but it doesnt work with apps you have to pay for... so its good for free aps you want to backup but if you want to get an apk for a "buy-app" i think you need root...
They are stored in "/data/app" directory. The problem is to access this directory you will need to be rooted.
There are apps that will backup apps to your sd card in case your ever need to reinstall them and can't redownload them. https://play.google.com/store/search?q=app+backup&c=apps
