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's also an ad-free paid version called App List Backup Pro. It's the same app, just without the ads. It costs $1.

Very easy to use, does not need (risky) internet permissions,and seems to backup quick. Not tried restoring yet though.

Works exactly as stated. I had to change from defective phone & this saved a lot of grief. Market updates all my apps now.

My touch 4g 2.2.1 t mobile usa SoCal. Save a list of your apps just incase you need it. Smallest size of it's kind. Doesn't run in background.

Great app! Just one thing. The instructions for use r very vague. Spent time trying to find the back up. Other than lack of explanation works great.

Great app for telling you what you had on your phone. Had to down a hard reset and I backed it up on this app. Worked perfectly. Bravo!

No instructions, says it has saved to SD card but same program finds no backup on replacement device. Very disappointed! Tried two cards.
