Geometer's Sketchpad Portable

I was surprised to see that there's no Geometer's Sketchpad App for the PortableApps.com platform. So... I've decided to make one myself. I am just assembling a draft now, and I will post that as soon as I'm finished. This is my first portable app, so help would be much appreciated.

Commercial.

As this app is commercial, you cannot do it without their permission. As John has finished licensing for commercial apps, this would have to be discussed with him if permission is granted.

There's GeoGebra

It's free and open source.
There's a DevTest version here:

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

Time Will Tell

I wonder about this post quite honestly. Not wishing to disrespect the original poster if his/her intentions are honorable, but it does have an air of spam about it.

Why is it surprising that Sketchpad hasn't already been developed here (aside from the fact that it's a commercial app)? The company that makes it has an Alexa ranking somewhere in the millions while Mozilla.org has a ranking somewhere in the three hundreds. Just an observation.

no

He's my friend. He's just rather new at developing and wanted a challenge, so he found one.

By the way, wtf is this "scriptdaemon" poster?

Nothing is as it appears...or is it?

Who are *you* ?

I've been a member here for more than two years. You've been a member for 20 minutes.

true

on the other hand, I don't have a name that makes me sound like a bot.

As you can see by my posts

As you can see by my posts and my development tests in the beta forum, you can see that that is clearly not the case.

not trying to offend anyone

but I have seen some pretty dynamic bots.

As well, you're responding quite quickly, which means that you must spend some time on this site.

and finally, i must know, why did you choose that name?

I receive emails when threads

I receive emails when threads to which I respond are updated with further comments.

I've had this handle for quite a while; it's been long enough that I've forgotten.

What to do

Well in that case, to repeat from above, you can tell your friend that he needs to go through John Haller (the owner of this site) to have a commercial app listed here. John will be able to tell him what can and needs to be done. There are a handful of commercial apps listed here already. See the contact page under "about us" for contact details.

Commercial != Freeware. This

Commercial != Freeware. This app you need to purchase a license to use (for more than 20 minutes, at least).

I stand corrected

So John won't list any commercial apps that are trialware, nagware etc? Only commercial apps that are "free for personal use"? I thought that eventually the platform will support any one (or business) that chooses to use it. Whether users will actually download commercial portable apps over open source (or Freeware) ones is another matter.

You misunderstood.

No, I was responding to your comment that we already list comercial apps. We don't currently have any commercial apps listed yet (commercial = paid). You were thinking of freeware apps.

Mark as "Resolved"

Well it's just my own paranoia/cynicism, I tend to translate "free for personal use" as "We reserve the right to pull the rug from under you at any moment and start charging an arm and a leg at our discretion". Thus I consider apps like TeamViewer to be commercial apps, although I guess technically it's freeware (and for the record one of the few non open-source apps that I now use and like).

I think of freeware (rightly or wrongly) to be more the lone programmer, creating apps in his/her spare time but not wanting to release the source code(for whatever reason).

Either way, in the PA.c world my definition is wrong, it's just a personal thing.
