How to easily create a list of your Android apps

A list of your Android apps can be a helpful reference. With List My Apps, you can easily create a list and share it with others.

Having a list of the apps on your Android device can be helpful at times, for yourself and for others. Maybe you're setting up a new device and can't remember all the apps you've installed or someone you know has asked you for app recommendations for their new Android phone. You could go directly to your list of apps on Google Play, but that list can contain apps you've downloaded, then uninstalled.

To get a current list of apps installed on your Android device, use a new app called List My Apps. When you launch List My Apps, it automatically gathers a list of the apps installed on your Android device. As GHacks notes, List My Apps only lists the apps you've installed, not the system apps that came preinstalled. To create your list, select the apps you want to include, then choose whether you want to copy the list as plain text, HTML, BBCode, or as a Markdown list. The last three options all include direct links to the apps in the Google Play store.

When you're ready to copy your list to the clipboard, tap on the clipboard icon at the top, then paste it to an e-mail, Evernote, or some other app you prefer to use. You can also tap on the share icon if you want to share it on social media.

That's it. If you don't want to select every app on the list individually, tap the menu key to bring up the "select all" and "deselect all" options.
