App List Backup

App List Backup


(This is the free version of App List Backup and has ads; see below for ad-free options, including email-based backup)
Saves the list of installed apps so you can re-download them from Google Play Store later (on the same or another device). This way apps still show up in Downloads and receive updates (unlike with other backup apps like MyBackup Pro).

The idea is NOT to back up non-Play-Store apps or to save you from re-downloading apps, so please don't rate negatively due to that.

The app saves a backup of your application list (or the part of it that you choose) onto the device's SD card or other storage. If both the old and new devices have an SD card slot, simply move the SD card from the old to the new device, and restore your apps. If one or both devices don't have an SD card slot, connect the old device to a computer, copy the folder called AppListBackup (from the root of the device's storage) to your computer. Then copy that same folder to the root of the new device's storage and run App List Backup to restore your apps.

Note: There are also 2 ad-free paid versions of this app:
- App List Backup Pro: it's the same app, just without the ads. Costs $1. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.punsoftware.backup.ad_free
- App List Backup No-Permissions: same app, except that it doesn't ask for ANY permissions at all and doesn't save to the SD card/storage. Instead, it allows you to email yourself the backup list, then restore from that email. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.punsoftware.backup.no_perm

User reviews of App List Backup
Nice app but needs a way to select all apps to backup. Having to select one by one is a pain.

great application. besides appbrain this is a great way to keep track of installed apps. especially if you need to re install some apps!!

I run this before any major changes. It's nothing fancy but it lets you get your apps back (without having to find them all again in the Market) if for some reason you don't want to restore from backups.

The app is legit I root all my phones. So I understand how important it is to have your apps backed up. This app does backup your app list, but not their data - like titanium backup. But this app is free and works on NON ROOTED devices. After downloading the app you can back up your list. Then wipe your phone. Once you reboot, apps start downloading on their own. That simple.

I paid for this... but development seems to have come to a standstill. Not much use with the latest devices, which don't have removable SD cards fitted.
