PortableApps was mentioned in the Business Apps forum and I was wondered if anyone else has any comments on it - i.e. is it a safe, reliable app etc.

 

For those who has not heard of this app, the following is a quote from their website ( https://portableapps.com/download ):

 

"The PortableApps.com Platform™ is a full-featured portable software system that ties all your portable apps together and lets you build your own custom portable app suite for use on your USB drive, cloud drive, or local PC."

portableApps  is good.  I have practiced with a couple of arrangements through portableApps and occasionally used a few of the installed applications.  Frequent updates are made available both to the main portableApp launcher and to many of the portableApps applications.  Some installs and updates take-up much time, and some others very little time.  I had occasionaly found reliability problems with certain applications, but not most.

I love that concept because a person can use local apps installed in a USB drive in a restricted computer lap.  For instance, if installs and apps are restrict in an internet cafe then just run your app from the USB drive and download your torrents that way.  Just make sure you have a portable drive to hold your data.

I am familiar with PortableApps since they have been around for a number of years now. Although I have only read good things about them, I have never found the need to use such products. I do use a lot of vendor software zipped versions which are essentially portable and can be used on USB drives.

I'll second this comment by quietman7!
