TinyApps is an online directory of applications that are really small, install without a hassle and do not consume a lot of system resources. The apps are primarily for the Windows OS but there are pages for Palm and OS X as well.
For an app to be a part of this site, it should not be more than 1.44 MB in size, should not require the VB/MFC/.NET runtimes and better if free and open-source.
The site has a pretty clean and simple design with app categories like internet, text, graphics, system, file, and more on the left. It links to either direct the download link or the app website, and has symbols beside each link to specify where it will lead you. There’s also a green award symbol for the app that doesn’t require installation and does not write to the registry either.
- Online repository of small applications.
- Mainly for the Windows OS.
- Apps less than 1.44 MB in size available.
