If you’re having trouble trusting the cloud but want to access the same essential apps & tools where ever you go, all you need is a USB memory stick and portableapps.com. Instead of hosting programs online, Portableapps is a suite of the freeware tools that fits onto and runs from almost any device with at least 512 MB of space. The website design looks a little last decade – but don’t let that fool you. This is a powerful & comprehensive suite of applications that will cover most of your day to day computing, and you can take it with you in your pocket wherever you go. There are loads of popular apps to download depending on the size of your memory stick, including creative & office tools, media players & loads of games. And because they run off the USB drive you can access them on any computer, even if it’s locked for installations. One really good tip if you have a virus infected PC that you can’t do anything with is to install the ClamWin antivirus tool on your USB drive through portableapps on another PC and then plug it in to the busted machine to clean it up, no hassle.
