XDA user commandersafi has created a Nice GUI program, which allows you to simply select all APK files, and it will create the flashable AROMA zip for you.
Really useful when you are a Frequent Rom Changer!

Official Thread: goo.gl/GyJTt

Code:
What Is It?

        Aroma App Package Creator is an application for those who flash new rom's often and want an easy way to create a flashable zip to reinstall apps. This utilizes Aroma Installer for more customization, allowing you to choose which apps to be installed instead of installing all of them. I made this tool for myself after seeing strawmetal's Flashaholic Essential Packs and wanted a way to produce the same results without editing multiple config files for each "pack" I make. I hope everyone else will find it useful as well 



How To Use:

    1) Download the aroma-app-package-creator.jnlp file and run by double clicking it

        You must have Java 6 or higher for the application
        You will have to accept a security warning. This is normal for all applications using Java Web Start


    2) Click the + button under the Group Names list to create a new group

    3) Add an app to a group by selecting the desired group, then click the + under the Apps list

        If you don't select an apk file then there will be an empty folder in the data folder of your created zip with the apk's name where you should place the .apk manually (NOTE: If you add the apk manually make sure to remove all spaces from the file name. If added by the application spaces are removed automatically)


    5) Flash your zip like any other in recovery


Download; http://goo.gl/7AU8v

Amazing, really!!

Cheers

So i've tried this, and tbh, it's too much hassle to be really efficient if you only have a few apps that you use. (I'm using only 4 'non-standard) apps.

But if you have over 10 apps you want to keep each time you test out a new ROM, this is for you

As i said, this is for people who change ROMS frequently. and the point of it being an AROMA package is that you can choose what to install while flashing the zip!
