Portable Application

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Have you ever downloaded a WinRAR or RAR(Roshal ARchive) file but unable to extract as there are no Compatible Program to do so?
Downloaded a video from the internet but unable to play due to the Computer you are using doesn't have any DivX Codec install?
Just received a file from someone that contains your Personal Information through email and was wondering if someone else is able to restore it even if you delete it?

These are the common problems that people face when they are using a Shared Computer or a Company Computer which they doesn't have any access to install any Application.

How nice would it be if all these Application doesn't need any Installation isn't it?

This is why John T. Haller created PortableApps.com.

There you can find lots of interesting and useful Application which is all Portable.

By saying Portable, it means the Application doesn't requires any installation to use. Only a simple extract and its up and ready =)
You can also carry it with you around in your thumbdrive, IPOD and even DVD/CD-ROM and use it on spot.

On top of that, all the Application is totally free! No trial period, no spyware and no advertisement!

Here's some Portable Application that might be useful to you guys:

7-Zip Portable
I believe some of you may have heard of 7-Zip before. It's a Application that allows you to de-compress and compress files format in 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR. But it only allows you to decompress files format in RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS.

Eraser Portable
Eraser Portable is a Secure File-Deletion and Data Wiping Utility. It can be use to Securely Delete any Sensitive Data make it unable to recover totally. More information and user manual can be found at the link.

VLC Media Player Portable
Movies and Anime lover out there, you must be familier with VLC Media Player. It's a Media Player that supports video format like MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, mp3, ogg, DVDs, VCDs and various streaming protocol. And of cause the best part is can play DivX encoded videos without having to install DivX Codec!

Other interesting and useful Portable Application includes Openoffice.org Portable, Mozilla Thunderbird Portable, Mozilla Sunbird Portable and many more which all can be found at PortableApps.com.

My 2 cents worth:

PortableApps.com also offers a PortableApps.com Suite™ which consist of a bundle of more commonly used Portable Applications all preconfigured to work portably. Just download and drop it anywhere and it'll be ready to use!
More information can be found at the website =)
