Root Flashing ROM and Kernel for first time, quick app backup question

So I am about to try to flash my first ROM and kernel. I am following a youtube video guide. Will be going with Myn's warm twopointwo, and kings 11 kernel. My question is about backing up my apps. From what I gathered there's two ways of doing it, appbrain or titanium backup. I do have the paid version of titanium. Does appbrain just let you know what apps you had and then you have to reinstall them manually? Or does it install them for you. I've heard a few people have had problems when using Titanium on flashing a new rom/kernel. I know titanium saves your settings, but do either of these apps backup the actual data? Really the only thing I am concerned about is losing my progress on angry birds lmao.
