Is it possible to get a list of the applications which have been installed?

I'm using ubuntu 12.04.

Open up the Ubuntu Software Centre. Click on the button labelled "Installed". All the apps installed will be listed under their respective categories.

A command line alternative is to use

$ sudo dpkg --get-selections
