The reason most of us use both, is because they do different things. When flashing a new ROM, using TiBu to restore apps has a lot of benefits vs. letting the market reload you apps because:
- It's much faster
- You get your app settings and data back (particularly important for Angry Birds addicts )
- System settings, like WiFi passwords, are also restored
I'll add one other BIG reason I use TiBu rather than letting the Market auto-restore -- "Force to same location." Assuming that option is checked in TiBu preferences, my apps all restore to the same location (SD card or internal, as applicable) as I had them when I did the TiBu backup. Market restore does them probably 90% or more internal, and I have so many apps that I get low storage errors and all kinds of FCs and things because I don't have any memory resources left. And if that's not bad enough, then I have to move the apps, one-by-one, to SD. So it's always TiBu restore for me!
