Editors' review

PortableApps Suite (Standard Edition) takes an old-school approach to mobile computing. Instead of hosting programs online, PortableApps is a comprehensive application suite that fits onto and runs from almost any device with at least 512 MB of space.

The suite's flexibility is impressive. It manages some of the best freeware applications from a taskbar menu that runs instantly when clicked on. User-favorites Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird are here, as well as the entire OpenOffice.org office suite, a calendar and day planner app, an instant messenger manager, an anti-virus program, and even a Sudoku game.

Impressively, the range of supported programs goes far beyond those in the Standard Suite. Others you can download include a media player, a Web page editor and even a version of the Mac OS. Along with all the software, PortableApp provides support for all your ancillary settings, plug-ins, buddy lists, and document and media files.

The download and installation is quick, if not lightning fast, and the interface menu looks as good as it is straightforward. We'd like to see a way to synchronize settings and extensions in future versions, although if you use portable apps exclusively you simply take your settings with you.

    "Very Useful Utility"

    August 31, 2010   |   By LarryGHowell

    Version: PortableApps Suite (Standard Edition) 1.6.1

    Pros

    When installed on a hardware write-protected USB memory key, the Winclam A/V app included with the PortableApps Suite is a handy tool for cleaning up a malware infected hard drive.

    Cons

    I haven't found any Cons, so far. The PortableApps Suite is exactly what it claims to be. Just wish that other software Vendors (MalwareByte) would provide and support portable apps.

    Summary

    If you're looking for a portable app's utility, PortableApps should meet most needs vety competently. The limitation I can see is not with the PortableApps suite, but is the limitable availability of portable apps.
