Since I change ROMs often as I change shirts , all I do is nandroid if it's a real good ROM; other than that I start from scratch and install apps as I need them.

Ok, wait woah. I feel stupid. Now, I've been flashing roms since back when Oxygen GB was all the rage, but I never realized I could use Titanium Backup&Restore, to backup and restore all of my apps! Derp. So how do I go about restoring them?

I use TB for apps, MyBackup Root for SMS, call log and app data, and I've recently discovered this cool app named "App2zip" which is great. You can backup your apps, and create a flashable zip. Then just flash the zip in recovery after ROM flash. Apps are back there. Haven't used it with more than a few apps tho. I just use it to backup some necessary apps, like TB, a file manager, etc to be able to get my phone in gear asap. Best of all it's free too.

I use this method from the AOKP FAQ:

5. Best way to restore apps with Titanium Back up?
Open TiBu.
Menu/ Preferences/ App processing mode/ AUTO Direct
Create backup (Menu/ Batch/ backup/ Click the gray Run button: Backup all user apps) Do not backup or restore system data
Choose Pause active apps/ Run the batch operation
Back/ Menu/ More/ Create "update.zip."
Under "Titanium backup will be install as: "choose “System application”
Move update.zip to root of the sdcard
Flash the ROM, GApps and BEFORE rebooting,mount /system
Choose install zip, and select the zip you created
Reboot
Skip the initial device setup screen Tap top-left, top-right, bottom-right, and bottom-left corners in that order
Launch TiBu and do Menu/ Batch/ Restore all user apps plus data
Reboot
Settings/ Accounts and Sync/ Add your Google account
More info: Titanium Backup WikI

Using this method I usually just restore essential apps and other apps only when I'm sure I'm going to be staying on the new ROM for awhile.

Came across Go Backup and it can backup everything like SMS , MMS , contacts, call logs, stock launcher settings and Apps with data as well.
Importantly, you can restore all at once without clicking on install button for every app

I still do not understand why people backup and restore SMS. Do you people not delete them ever either?

Nor really. Since the phone as memory enough to save all SMS. Beside that sometimes for me already helped to find some SMS with the date that someone told me something and with that I just search for it and turn my point right.
