I like portableapps very much, but I have few suggestions about portableapps platform.
1. On WinXP when portableapps platform start menu is not visible it is not shown in the taskbar, only in tray icon, on Win7 it is always visible in the task bar. Please make an option to hide icon from taskbar.
2. Make mouse down animation for buttons (apps, options, search, help) the fact that I press the button and don't see it is pressed is very frustrating.
3. Improve "Getting More Apps", create a dialog box where it is possible to sort a table by name or category, where I could search for the application by it's name: I have to go to the portableapps.com first to text-search for the needed app and then look for it in the "Get More Apps..." dialog.
4. Improve the application updater. When I check to update multiple apps and some error occurs while downloading/installing the app or the license dialog appears, the updating process stops. I have to press [OK] to resume. The message in the end of updating is very poor - it says "The portableApps.com Updater did not complete successfully. Please try again later". Please make it to show more informative message at the end, like:
Opera, Portable Edition - download failed
Skype Portable - installation failed
LibreOffice - canceled by user
Foxit Reader Portable - successfully updated
And if something happens during updating of one app, make it to continue updating all other apps and don't pause everything.
