Help Create a List of Apps that are on my Nexus 7
« on: December 17, 2012, 12:12:25 PM »
I have a rooted Nexus 7 running Android 4.2.1.  I want to create a list of my apps to send as an email attachment to a friend. 
Can someone tell me how to create such a list?  I cannot even figure out where the list of apps is stored.
 
I have Terminal Emulator installed so I should be able to 'cd' to the proper directory, issue 'ls > list_of_apps.txt', then use AirDroid to transfer list_of_apps.txt to my laptop to send the file as an email attachment.  Maybe someone has a simpler method.  All I want is the list of installed apps that Google Play Store brings up stored as a file I can email.
 
I have a tendency to make things more complicated than need be.  My apologies in advance (AIA?).  Any help would be appreciated.  I am running Linux Mint 13 KDE (or Windows 7 when absolutely required) on my laptop.

In Terminal Emulator:
'cd /system/app'
'ls > /sdcard/airdroid/upload/list_apps.txt'
works.  I simply had to create list_appts.txt outside of Terminal Emulator.  It would not let me create a new file.
I created the file on linux and downloaded it via AirDroid, ran Terminal Emulator to pipe the output to list_apps.txt, then used AirDroid to pass the file back up to linux.  Maybe someone else has a better way to move things around than this.

Edit: In typical linux fashion the above solution is only partial as some apps are stored in directories other than /system/app.  So my search goes on.  Any help/advice/insights would be appreciated.

Do you use Titanium? If so, you can make a list of installed apps and send it many different ways. Like so.

Perfect answer, BJS.  Thank you.  I use Titanium Pro for my backups and knew I saw that somewhere.  I will put the tip in Tomboy notes.  I look there to remember.
