    i'm just wondering if there is a way to backup the list of market apps i've downloaded so i can reinstall them easily? i dont care about the actual data just the name of all of them so if i restore, i know what i had installed. is there an easy way?
    thanks

    Yep, it's an app called "App List" (surprisingly enough)

    Last time I did a hard reset and wiped my device it reinstalled all my apps automatically. I have no idea how but it did. After I logged into my gmail account everything started to appear. It was actually pretty cool.

    The phone backs up the installed programs to your main google account so if you get a new droid or have to wipe the phone clean it will download the programs from google.

    Is this list available somewhere that I could get to through my google account (on the PC)?

    You can also use a program like Astro to backup all your apps to your SD card.

    You need to have Settings->Privacy->Back up my settings turned on for this to work. It is off by default.

    If you turn it on now, yes, it will make a backup list. My issue with this is that if you installed some app that totally F'ed up your phone, when you do a hard-reset, it loads it right back on.

    I keep it off. When I hard-reset, it's sort of a way to keep my "app-happy" self in check...as in, after the hard-reset, I'll download only the apps I 'need' right then.
