I use it for five years at list - it's perfect for thous who know how to get the most of it. Nobody knew what a Portable App was back in 2008 or 2009 in school. Only the geeks had them. I was already learning Linux. XD Thank you open source and thank you Portable Apps!
Please excuse caps, but it's TERRIBLE. It downloads INSTALLERS, not archives as expected. Moreover, I need to click next, next, next for each package. Sure I can write script to do this mindless clicking, but how about ordinary user? Totally not recommended, it's really true windows-style piece of... software.
Portable applications themself are very useful, but please spend more time developing portableapps platform design. On win7 the task bar icon doesn't dissapear when papps platform is hidden, I'd like to see it only in tray. Make mouse down animation for those buttons (like apps or options) the fact that I press the button and don't see it is pressed is making me feel sick. Create a dialog box for Getting More Apps 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 papps site first to text-search for the needed app and then look for it in the "Get More Apps..." dialog!
very good made .
