    In the same vein, you can install Homebr3w, then you'll have the TitleDB list available from an installer app, right on the system.

    Each time I used Homebr3w it would crash - but it seems to work

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I would advise install JKSM - a save manager which you can backup your saves of games in case something goes wrong, the rest are down to what you're interested in using~

    FBI has a TitleDB menu as well these days, but in my opinion Homebr3w is a bit easier to work than Steveice10's implementation of it.

    Well, some of the most commonly installed apps from the site are:

    Luma3DS Updater
    freeShop
    JK's Save Manager
    hblauncher_loader v1.2

    And for games, pretty much anything ported by NOP90 is worth trying out.

    freeshop is basically magic, its actually superior to the oficial eshop!
    It's also always nice to have an ftp client so you don't have to always be taking out your SD card.

    Must haves imo:

    Freeshop: This will make it so you can easily access games and install them "officially". When installed. Find the titlekeys to get and put it in the autoupdater.

    Another option is CIA Angel, but it's not visually appealing. There's little reason to use it over Freeshop these days.

    FBI: This will let you easily install.cia files. Obviously Freeshop is the thing to use for games, but there are other homebrew things that you'll need this for.

    FTPD: An FTP client. This will let you remotely transfer files from your computer to the 3DS. N3DS has an official one, but the homebrew one still transfers a bit faster in my experience. Filezilla is the best Windows FTP client. Copy the IP and port that's on the 3DS to connect to it.

    CHMM and GYTB: If you want to customize your 3DS, not only with official themes, but custom ones, this is a great app to have. Get themes for it from here: https://3dsthem.es/ GYTB is for custom badges if you want to use them.

    That pretty much covers everything that works well on 3DS.

    If you play Pokemon, Pchex++ is really good for editing Pkmn on the go!
