I'll start off

Android 10 oos


Swift installer, swaps themes for desired apps(dark mode for apps), paid

MacroDroid, automated Android-- (does automated functions-move files to "correct folders", free versions allows 6 modules with nearly unlimited functions.


Gravity box for Android 10, allows modifications to the system, free

Microsoft authentication, authentication app for 2 step login, free

Xda labs, obvious but for xda forms, free

Mixplorer - file explorer that has a great ui (I use black/blue theme)


EdXposed, allows tweaks and more, free (removed due to lagged device. Running magisk to run riru, to run edexposed kinda sucks.)


Apps that don't work as intended
Titanium Backup (delete system apps, freeze apps, backup phone info and apps) doesn't delete system apps due to OnePlus file structure.
Swipeback2 (swipe from the edge to go back) caused black screen issues

Edits: added more apps and info

Swift backup - titanium looks weak when you compare the two apps
Titanium had a good run, but it's time for a new king. Swift's UI is more user friendly too.

I use volume slider. The paid version had more options, but it allows you to adjust brightness, call volume, media volume and a few others just by swiping up and down on your designated sides.

FolderSync is used to backup the native call recorder.
Plus Beat is used to overcome the AOD Lack. (OPAODmod block chrome, and other AOD apps are heavy battery consumers, or disabling face recognition unlock).

Edxposed modules:
- Xposed edge
- gravity box
- Xprivacy lua

You can do this and much more with Xposed edge.

I've used titanium for years but haven't recently. I remember when restoring backups after changing roms, the notifications of the apps restored were broken. Does that happen with swift?
So far it hasn't failed on me, but I don't want to sound like a shill. there's a chance it won't work in every situation, but it usually installs the apps with no fuss and proper permissions.

Do you require premium swift for back up?

Was using titanium but not working on op7. All I have is Google back up

Like to have a full backup in case phone collapses if installing anything

Try migrate from playstore which is free. Don't have many features but work fine for backup and restore only.

Can Swift backup be used without requiring root? At least to backup just the apks to the cloud and possibly allowed transfer of apps between devices.

No you can backup apps but it will be one at a time (the apps circle on top)

Have yet to backup apps due to issues that use to occur when using titanium Backup.

Seems it's just missing contacts backup

titanium backup is the number one on my list, without this app, my android experience would be miserable.

swype keyboard (so sad it's dead project, but still works better than any other keyboard, as well as it had the highest amount of features)

swift backup is total waste, hate that garbage.

Google backup is a real trash, so glad that we can turn this waste off.
