Ive had the PortableApps suite on another Thumb Drive of mine. I didnt get to tinker with the software for long though because after a few days of use my Thumb Drive took a dump and stopped working.

Ive ordered another Thumb Drive off the internet and I should have it within a couple of days. I am thinking of a way I want to organize everything, including my Apps.

What Im wondering is if I can install Apps onto the PortableApps launchpad other than the apps that are on the website. In other words can I put Winamp Portable on the PortableApps Launchpad... Since it isnt on the actualy PortableApps website Im curious if you can download any "outside apps".

This all fits into my organization scheme... I want to be able to start winamp from the launch pad...

Thanks in advance.

i think you can record any portable application to your thumb drive, no matter what else do you have there.

However, just check when you get your thumb drive :thumbsup:.

Yes

The PortableApps.com Menu will also work with other standalone and portable apps.
