Must Have Portable Applications For Flash Drives

Do you have a flash drive? Sure you do! In this post, I will give a list of portable applications that you can install in your flash drive/USB. But first let me explain some things.

What is a portable application?
A portable application is an application that you can install on your flash drive or USB stick and use it on other computers without installing the specific application. Thus, there won't be any hassle of configuring and installing everytime you want to use an application on another computer.

Why do I need these portable applications?
Portable applications are indeed very useful especially if you're a "computer geek", a computer technician, or maybe just an ordinary person with a flash drive. You can use them to fix or edit things. Just take for example if you're visiting a friend that doesn't have a MS Office 2007 installed on his computer and you to open a file that requires office 2007. Portable apps becomes handy in this situation, because with portable openoffice app, you can open that file without installing anything on your friend's computer.
