Portable applications

Recommended Posts

Too cool. Can't vouch for this personally but every reason to believe functionality is 'as advertised'. Thanks to member Dark Samurai {Loud} at the Whirlpool discussion forums (iiNet) for his posting and recommendation. Advantages: portability (all fits on any of the tiny flash drives with loads of space left over for data), privacy (minimal footprint) and cost (none).



The PortableApps.com Suite and Platform is free. It contains no spyware. There are no advertisements. It isn't a limited or trial version. There is no additional hardware or software to buy. You don't even have to give out your email address. It's 100% free to use, free to copy and free to share.

Included Applications
