An "off-grid" version of Windows 7 that can be used forever inside other OSes

A year ago, I switched to Android (from iPhone). I have very high productivity needs, and don't do social media. I installed all the apps I needed, and then switched off all updates.

The result? Life changing.

Pros: My phone behaves predictably. The UI never changes. My friends and colleagues keep complaining about how after updating this or that app the buttons changed, or free features became "paid-only", or the phone slowed down, or the app keeps crashing. Not for me. Everything works exactly as it used to a year ago.

I always have/use a non-portable Google Chrome instance. And several portable Google Chromes. But when they update at start up by the Portable Apps Updater, it says that my Portable Google Chrome instance is open. But it is not. The one open is my non-portable instance of Google Chrome. Only after I close my non-portable instance of Google Chrome, the updater continues.

Running Portable Apps from Android Phone

Submitted by McNutty195 on September 20, 2018 - 10:16am

Greetings all,

I'm looking at beginning to use my phone as my EDC storage device with all of my portable apps.

However, I've found that some portable apps don't seem to work from the phone. I've also found that I can't use the PortableApps installer to install portable apps on the sd card or storage of my phone.

I think this is because when I connect my Galaxy S8+ to the computer through USB it doesn't get assigned a drive letter. It pops up with an MP3 player icon (MTP I think)

Does anyone know anything about this?
