Skype Portable is a lean Skype installation designed to take Skype with you wherever you go. Install Skype on a USB drive or other portable device, and you'll be able to use the program from anywhere.
Familiar: Skype Portable operates exactly as you would expect Skype to operate, which is essential when using a different version of such a high-profile program.
USB portability: We tested Skype Portable by installing it on a variety of devices and attempting to run it from those devices. No matter which device we tried it on, we were able to launch Skype calls and messaging sessions without issue.
Straightforward installation: Skype streamlined installation to make it very easy, whether you're installing it on your PC or on a mobile drive or device. Creating a new Skype account or logging in with an existing one both worked equally well.
Some redundancy: Skype may already be installed on your computer and mobile devices. Therefore, although this program is useful, it is questionable as to how necessary it actually is.
If for some reason you feel that you need to keep Skype on a mobile drive, then Skype Portable works very well. It launches without difficulty and provides Skype's full functionality wherever you take it.
