    DANG! I should have thought of that! Thanks Funky.


    https://play.google.com/store

    Settings Gear > My Orders.
    It will already list chronologically all of your purchases (movies, apps, music, devices, etc.) through Play Store with the oldest at the bottom. Which is a stupid kind of nightmare.

    Slightly above the app names column you will see "All Orders" with a click down. There you can filter to show only Apps, Music, etc.

    Sorry. No way to do this on the mobile app that I can find.

    the earliest one i have that i haven't deleted or isn't verizon/bloatware related is weatherbug.

    i do go through them from time to time and delete ones that i know i'm never going to touch again, just because it makes the reinstall process faster and easier.

    uninstalled, yeah, but you can go into the list and delete them from your history as well. then they're gone, and if it was a paid app, you'll have to pay for it again.

    My first app I downloaded, I think, would be TV Listing. It has to be one of the first.

    Looking through the Play store list, it show I installed it this year ('13), which I know I had to install it sometime early 2012. I believe if you've done a Factory reset and reinstall apps, it puts the current date on the PS list.

    Calendar Snooze, to correct what to me (former Palm user) was a major lack in the inbuilt calendar notifications.

    Has the nice feature that I can pick calendar apps on other features, and not worry about the notifications as this app handles that for me.
