Definition Of Portable Applications

What is a portable app?

A portable application (portable app) is a computer software program that runs from a removable storage device such as a CD-ROM drive, USB flash drive, flash card, or floppy disk. Portable apps should not be confused with software portability where software allows its source code to be compiled for different computing platforms. Portable applications can be run on any computer system with which they are compatible but typically require a specific operating system such as Microsoft Windows XP or above, any Linux, etc.

Its Easy As Below:

No Special Hardware - Use any USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod/MP3 player, or run it from your internal HDD without activation/installation etc

No Additional Software - Just download the portable app, run the portable installer and go

- Carry your web browser with all your favorite bookmarks
- Carry your calendar with all your appointments
- Carry your email client with all your contacts and settings
- Carry your instant messenger and your buddy list
- Carry your whole office suite along with your documents and presentations
- Carry your antivirus program and other computer utilities
- Carry all your important passwords and account information securely
- Have your favorite websites handy to recommend to a friend or colleague
- Have your presentation AND the required software ready to go for that big meeting
- Have your password with you if you want to bank online while traveling
- Have utilities handy when visiting family or friends that are having PC problems
