This code snippets helps us to list all the installed applications on a Mobile Device using Python

The extension that offers this functionality is applist.

Applist is a S60 python extension module for getting list of applications info.

The applist function returns a list of tuples (Uid, caption, fullName). Uid is an integer.


The code below is used to list applications

import applist
apps = applist.applist()
print apps

The following snippet can be used to list all the captions of installed applocations:

import applist
a = applist.applist()
for i in a:
print i[1]


In the second code snippet, the caption of all the installed applications will be printed on the Python shell and this information can be used effectively in applications.
