    You can always use apt commands if you have Apt installed.

    You can run dpkg -l to get a list of installed packages. I think it is installed with Cydia. Apt has to be installed seperately. The file /var/lib/dpkg/status lists everything you have installed plus a lot more info such as dependencies. "cat /var/lib/dpkg/status | grep Package" will list only the names of everything installed.

    from link:
    ..fire up the terminal and create a file to store our list. This can all be handled with one command.

    dpkg --get-selections > myapps.txt

    Putting this code into terminal will create a text file called “myapps.txt” which contains all the selections you’ve made in Cydia.

    Edit: I just tried this way and foob's way and foob's is MUCH better. Just drag the file to your desktop and open with wordpad.
