Imagine, The Boss has an important conference presentation next week. Or maybe they have to deliver a presentation somewhere and the level of reliable Internet access is sketchy at best. They have a laptop but what if it breaks down or worse gets stolen? How can we ensure that they will be able to conduct their presentation if their laptop fails or there is no Internet access?

As an Instructor who delivers many onsite presentations to clients around the world I never know what the classroom environment will bring. With the presentation machine even be working? Will there by WiFi available? PortableApps has become an invaluable lifesaver for me many times.

So what is PortableApps?

A portable app is a computer program that doesn’t need to be installed into Windows like traditional apps so you can carry it with you on a portable device or cloud drive and use on any Windows computer. When your USB flash drive, portable hard drive, or other portable device is plugged in or your cloud drive is synced, you have access to your software and personal data just as you would on your own PC. And when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

No Special Hardware – Use any USB flash drive, portable hard drive, etc

No Additional Software – Just download, run the portable installer and go

No Kidding – It’s that easy
