    What app would I use to make a list of my programs installed? I keep getting some funky music playing randomly and i can't figure out where it's coming from so i want to do a complete hard reset on phone but want to make sure i have the list backed up

    If all you want is a list, install appbrain from the android market. Not only can you make a list of all your installed applications, but you can browse the market from their site.

    MyBackup will remember all your apps and then you can reinstall all your apps via it without having to download them all individually.

    I use app dragon. It will create a list and you can email it to yourself. Then just open up gmail and you have a list on screen to show what apps you need to reinstall.

    Another vote for Appbrain - although I'm pretty sure it only covers market apps - cuz I don't see Swype or apps that I got from "Unknown Sources" like the SlideMe marketplace. But it's also a good way to look at your apps -by size, & category.
    I haven't tried out the "uninstall via their site" feature yet.

    Listables also makes a list of your installed apps.

    If you have a file manager app installed you can also just browse to /data/app and copy/paste the .apk's of the apps you dont want to lose (sdcard is where i put mine so i can reinstall on the fly if need be). You will probably have to allow apps from unknown sources to install the .apks (menu>settings>applications). This method will allow you to reinstall your apps without having to re-download (also you have the installer in case a dev update screws up the program).

    AppBrian is one I just found today. You can remove and install apps via your computer with it.
