Default What is a Portable App?

As taken from PortableApps.com:

portable - carried or moved with ease
app - a computer program like a web browser or word processor

A portable app is a computer program that you can carry around with you on a portable device and use on any Windows computer. When your USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod or other portable device is plugged in, you have access to your software and personal data just as you would on your own PC. And when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

No Special Hardware - Use any USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod/MP3 player, etc

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

No Kidding - It's that easy

Consider the Possibilities...

* 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

Consider the Convenience...

* 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
