Got a suggestion for an app that should be portable? Post it here.

Podcatcher on a Stick

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on December 9, 2005 - 12:34pm

Just thought I would let everyone know about a little-known podcatcher that can be run from your usb-mp3 player. It downloads your podcasts straight to your drive, so if you don't have broadband at home like me, and have network restrictions like me, you can still use the office\school connection to download your podcasts. I think it would be great if it were listed on this site. The address is below.

U3 Alternative

I don't know if this is possible since I am not a programmer, but I have thought for a long time that it would be great if someone would develop an OS that runs from a flash drive. What I would like to see is a platform that would possibly autorun when the drive is plugged in and list the portable apps located on the drive in a virtual "Desktop". I know the U3 launchpad drives have been released, but I don't own one, and I think it would be great to have an alternative. Besides, from what I understand, you are required to purchase much of the portable software, and many free applications are not compatible with it yet.

I noticed no links under the image viewers and would like to make a suggestion for a link to a free image viewer application that is already portable. You should drop those guys a line and see if they mind you linking to their page.

The application is very well written and can do limited image manipulation. Far better than Irfanview in my opinion. (No, I don't work for xnview, just glad to see such a beautiful peice of work made available to all).

Greetings, I have been thoroughly enjoying pocket GAIM and pocket pocket Firefox; very good ideas.
I'm not sure how possible it would be, but perhaps a portable version of The GIMP could be made?
