100 Portable Apps for your USB Stick (for Mac and Win)

usb apps   100 Portable Apps for your USB Stick (for Mac and Win) This stuff can be installed on any portable drive, i.e. USB thumbdrive, PDA or an iPod. You can use them at work, school, or any other place where you can plugin your device. Check them out, you can either scroll-down for relevant category, i.e office software, email tools, messengers, games, etc. or get a ‘all-in-one’ package (all essential tools) . While there are more apps for windows users, I tried to include a mac version for each essential tool. All free. Enjoy!

Update: After reviewing comments and suggestions on this articles as well as running a survey for best portable applications we came up with an ultimate list of apps. Check out our newly launched Best Portable Apps page.

What is a portable program ? : A portable program is a piece of software that you can carry around with you on a portable device and use on any other computer. It can be your email program, your browser, system recovery tools or even an operating system. The coolest part about it, is that all of your data and settings are always stored on a thumbdrive so when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

This is a great list. I will recommend this to my readers.

Aibek

Thanks Elwyn… I have no doubt that your readers will love it. ;-)

Michael

Great list of portable software. I will definately place a link at http://www.php-shop-system.com

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack with Media Player
(Bad Link)

Aibek

@Takashi
Thanks for letting me know, it’s fixed now. For some reason the source site for the codec pack no longer exist. And unfortunately, I couldn’t find any working alternative source.

Andrew

I recommend you to include Bookmark Base (bookmarkbase.com) to the “Portable Browsers and Internet Tools” section.

Aibek

@Andrew
Seems like an excellent tool, but unfortunately it’s not free ($20). I would rather recommend installing free Bookmark sync extension on a portable version of Firefox. Not as flexible as BookmarkBase but should be fine for most folks.

Adam Frinberg

greate list! thanks

Duc Nguyen

great list. I recommend AutoMee: http://automee.pxax.com for automating tasks.

good

[…] that you always have important info/software with you. To get started check out our massive list of free portable apps. (Note: iPhone drive isn’t a freeware, costs $9.95) iphone […]

apsuva

süper bir liste tebrikler (great list. congratulations)

George

I’m currently using FF 2.0.* on my USB drive as i type this

Aibek

cool :-)

Ashish

Woah! Superb list. I managed to make the ones I downloaded from of these to work with the Portable Apps menu by creating a Self-extracting archive and then using Install App from the menu. It’s cooler than going everytime to your drive and double-clicking the app icon! :) [All except opera... It detects only .exe whereas Opera@USB needs op.jar to be clicked to run.]

Btw, you missed Notepad++, I do know that you can’t note all of them.. still pointing out. Thanks again for the list! :)

Aibek

@Ashish
Thanks for the the heads up on Notepad++. I am going to add it to the list.
BTW, you can also create a portable start menu for all your shortcuts.

Aibek

Ashish

Actually, I wanted to inform you about MPlayer portable but while posting this comment I remembered only Notepad ++ . lol!

Yes, I think using PStart. But as of now, all of the external programs are added to the PortableApps Menu thanks to the procedure I described above. Problem is it detects the .exe’s and Opera@usb requires the .jar file to be run. Now if they could only allow dragging shortcuts to the menu, it would totally kill the competition! :)

Thanks for the cool list again! :)

Aibek

Yeap, shortcut drag’n drop functionality would make it as good as desktop itself. :-)

phu

excellent

Gand

There are also:
Portable Vienna RSS reader for OS X:
http://www.freesmug.org/portableapps/vienna/

Portable Celtx OS X screenwriting:
http://www.freesmug.org/portableapps/celtx

Gand

95% of OS X applilcations are portable in the mean that you can install them with a drag and drop and put them on a USB stick (or everywhere) instead in the default Application folder. What make them really “Portable” by name is the fact that all user/app preferences remain and are carried on the USB stick and not on guest hard disk.

Aibek

@Gand

Thanks for sharing, although I have never used Mac before it’s good to know. ;-)

careto

Restrictions on Portable Apps, about just allowing exe files can be surpassed using BatchCompiler (search google for “JPSoft_batcom10uk.zip”), which allows one to compile a batch file into binary executable.

Functionalities like drag’n’drop, categories, and much more, can be added easily using Karl McMurdo mod r30, for “Portable Apps Menu”, available here (http://portableapps.xrx.ca/portable-apps-menu-mod/).

Cheers

Aibek

thanks a lot, I have been looking for this for a while. ;-)

Hi,
Ethereal portable is here:

Hi There,

Hamachi portable seems to be a bad link. It leads to a unit conversion utility. (I recommend Hamachi to anyone in need of a simple to setup VPN).

I wonder how a portable version would work (on my laptop it runs through an installed Hamachi network driver). Maybe a portable proxy that logs into the Hamachi network?

Thanks for the great list!

– Jordan

Ryders

Not free tho’

Ryders

Sorry, Hamachi has a free version, it’s XYplorer that doesn’t

Don

Add XYplorer, the portable file manager. It adds some highly interesting portability features such as Portable File Associations and Application Relative Paths.

I Like portable soft all the time, because its easy to carry & will not broken if my windows error…
but many portable soft not so handy sometimes, they have many bugs & cant update..

Marjolein Katsma

You mention KeePass for Windows, but there’s an official Mac port as well: KeePassX – The Official KeePassX Homepage – there are versions for Panther, Tiger and Leopard.

I have both the Windows version and the Tiger version on my USB stick, and they work with the same database, so I always have all my passwords and other data available!

Ryan

Good list.

I always throw the installers for Word, Excel and PowerPoint Viewers on my stick just in case I need them in a pinch.

Thomas Blake

The recommended game ‘Gem Drop’ has a virus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peter

Your link to the game gemdrop (windows binary download) has a trojan horse. Win32:Agent-KGH [Trj]

Aibek

It was clean earlier, the link is removed now!

Thank you

I have been using XYplorer for 3 years now and I would like to suggest it for this list. Its key features are: Powerful search, User-friendly, Multi-tabbed, Instant preview of many file extensions, portable file associations, User defined commands, customized shortcuts and many more. And it is developed actively (2-3 betas per week).
Check out XYplorer

You can add to the list the Winamp Portable edition to download here

Thanks

first off – This is a fantastic site!!! However………..FYI, I just installed Treepad free edition with the idea that I would use it for a bookmark manager. Wellllll…..It takes one of the paid editins to get tht feature. FYI

Did you forget to mention Dos Box Portable. A complete dos system for usb stick, runs on windows only, fairly compact(only 1mb). Works like a charm. can even run windows 3.1 on it. seePortableApps.com to find it.

Mark Vletter

We wrote a weblog article about setting up some of the software you name in your list. It includes FileZilla and Portable Firefox to be used on both Apple and Windows workstations. It can be found on: Voys.nl. I want to recommend TrueCrypt as well. It’s a file encryption app.
Hope its usefull!

Louis

All the applications are Excellent, but I cannot use on the network, where they have restricted everything to run………I can only access USB, run IM app, but cannot connect….. is there any way around to connect to portable IM chat,?????????????

Thank you….

Christie

Great list! You missed my all time favorite, gotta-have-it all-in-one portable software package radsoft’s XPT. It’s not for everyone – it’s heavyweight ‘Extreme Power Tools’ for developers, adminstrators and the like. And even though there’s upwards of 150 applications, it’ll still fit on a USB stick with room to spare. If nothing else, the incredible file management system makes it worth having.

Northman

All,

Being on the move much, I have found running my apps from an USB stick invaluable.

One essential is voip-download.com/Skype.htm#USB-Skype which allows you to talk free (if the host PC has mike & headset) or at least IM …

Devicepedia

You know there once was an idea that Microsoft would run Microsoft Office from a USB key.

The other question i have is does a USB really speed up the performance of Windows Vista? I heard rumors to this effect.

Northman

Devicepedia,

I have not heard about the Vista rumor, but here are some Vista speed-up hints

It is free-of-charge and is designed for use with USB Memory Sticks.

Puppy Linux can be included in Portable Operating Systems, comes with a native installer for usb sticks(download is a 100MB iso image that need to be burned to a cd before you can use the Puppy Universal Installer) and is loaded with all apps you can need: oficce like, multimedia, games, etc.
Works great on any pc with 128MB of ram and is lightning fast on modern machines.

Satish

I too am using Puppy Linux and it is the best.

I like the USB stick and also the list of applications. Thanks.

HostingITrust

Thanks for the list.

Good list. With the size of flash drives getting larger, we’re soon gonna have entire USB operating systems complete w/ software on them.

I have a shorter list of good USB tools especially for designers over at my blog.

Squall

can anyone please advise if the uTorrent will work “apart” from the Windows on base PC? I mean stay unnoticed to Anti-Virus or Registry Application Trackers? I guess not, but that’s my understanding of “Portable”.. is there any torrent program which can do that?
One way to override the problem is to keep a Bootable USB and no more problems.. but before getting to that option, is there smth more I should be looking to?

thanks in advance.

These look like a great tool to use but don’t know if I would want to have personal information, like what would be used for some of these apps, all handy to be stolen on a USB stick.

ridoncular

Hi guys,
In the past, buying a computer is really hard for someone who don’t know anything about it. How to check it out and how to confirm it is really ok. But now, we can easily check a computer before buying it, we can look over some information about motherboard serie, RAM, Caches, Chipset, etc. Hence, we can make a decision for buying. And it becomes really flexible with a portable version . So you can save it on your USB flash drive and bring it anywhere you want to check a certain CPU information . You can download this sw @ tuuko.com/SL/71
Have fun

KMplayer portable media player. Word is download the zip version. Very good media player. If you have a wireless keyboard it’s like having a tv remote for watching anything on your computer. Many many keyboard features for zoom, playback speed, file loading, rewind, fast forward. Just a great utility and it’s free!!

P.S. to KMPlayer comment. Almost nothing it can’t play including audio formats. KM is the best! (especially if you don’t like looking for codecs all the time.

A brief description of the Mode is shown at the bottom display area.

Why Restrict USB Drives from accessing your computer ?

We use USB Drives everyday and are grateful for the service they provide, but on the downside, there are three reasons people should restrict or control USB Drive Access into their computers.

1. Virus Traffic

2. Personal Privacy

3. Data Theft

Virus Traffic:

There are many people these days that use USB Drives on a daily basis. At work or at home you’ll find many people carrying their USB Drives with many good and bad files. The most draw back to using USB Drives is Virus Traffic. A USB Drive will carry viruses to all accessed computers.

Most Antivirus software today are specialized with internet virus sources and are paying little attention to viruses coming directly from USB Drives. Autorun virus is one of the most types of viruses that might tamper with your computer files and settings coming from a USB Drive and the Antivirus won’t even notice.

Imagine 1000 employees each with a personal USB Drive that carries god knows what type of viruses from home and plugs in his/her USB Drive into a network PC of 1000 users !!! You can prevent this problem from happening ahead of time by using USB Drive Monitor to control USB Drive access to your computers.

Personal Privacy:

in todays world even the little brothers and sisters carry USB Drives in their little pockets. If you’re at home and you keep personal notes, pictures, videos, or even working on an important project; you need to have your computer secured.

Otherwise with one little innocent mistake all your data will be gone after your little sibling inserts a USB Drive into your PC. Your private information might be uploaded on the internet as a silly joke.

You can use the USB Drive Monitor to secure your PC from Foreign USB Drives or even lock and unlock your PC by using your configured Personal USB Drive. You can activate a screensaver or generate a sound or custom text alert to intruders. You’ll have full control over your PC.

Data Theft:

Its a good practice to use USB Drives at work, but with rules and regulations. Without proper USB Access Control you’ll have your company data and privacy at risk.

Solution One: You can have a master PC that logs USB Drive files by using USB Drive Monitor to identify unique hardware key and user name as well as log USB Drive file content and use this PC as a checking gateway for your company.

Solution Two: You can assign a USB Drive to be officially used inside the company only and restrict all other USB Mass Storage Devices. You can configure this USB Drive by using the USB Drive Monitor and securing the program with a password used by the administrator. The USB Drive monitor can be configured to delete files on unauthorized USB Drives inserted into any computer to make sure no data is lost.

Solution Three: Its the important information that needs to be protected. Your company can assign specified PCs to have confidential and important data and secure then with the USB Drive Monitor. You can have all USB Mass Storage Devices disabled, Sound and Text messages enabled, Task Manager disabled, Screensaver enabled and file deletion on Foreign USB Drives inserted will still be an option.

This way you set the rules and the USB Drive Monitor will enforce them for you.
