In the next couple weeks, I’ll be upgrading to a new Motorola Triumph on Virgin Mobile. I don’t use that many apps but even so they are hard to keep track of. Honestly, my initial thought was that I’d remember the apps I used most and slowly rediscover the apps which I did not use nearly as much.
But instead, I needed to get a list of apps on my Android phone. I make a list of applications on Windows before every re-install and Android is not really an exception. I looked into the market for an app to do this and there it was.
Downloadable in the Android Market, MyAppsList allows you to easily export a list of applications you have either downloaded via barcodes/qrcodes or via the market. This little app can save it as HTML with clickable links to the respective pages in the market. You can then save that generated list for safe keeping via email.
MyAppsList allows you to quickly generate a list of all the applications you have installed on your device and save it to the clipboard, save it to the SD Card or email it to a friend.
It supports vB Code (to post to forums), HTML and plain text.
MyAppsList is also a useful tool to create a list of installed applications as a personal backup.
Apparently I run my phone with 23 installed apps and I now have them safely remembered in an email somewhere. So if you ever need to swap or restore your phone, by keeping a periodically updated app-list will certainly ease the transition.
