I wanted to quickly create a list of my backups. I didn't have any app that could do it, so I wrote a simple one and would like to share it. There might be other (more professional) apps, but it's nice to have alternatives.

The list can be saved to a text file. Also games trophies can be browsed if they're available.
Hope you like it!
Added support for scanning games in network shared folders (proper permissions should be set)
