FindMySoft Editor's Review Platform - Portable apps launcher
Review by on
We always feel the most comfortable on our own computers because we have everything we need on them. If you'd like to take a small part of your computer with you, then you should definitely turn to the Platform. You can use this lightweight piece of software to launch portable apps from a USB flash drive. It lets you take all your favorite utilities with you and use them on any other computer without having to install anything on the host. If you prefer to use a certain app at work but you don't have the administrative rights to install it or if you regularly help other people with their computer problems, you can rely on this complete and customizable toolbox.

You only need to pay for the Platform if you want to make a donation. It doesn't bother you with any messages, and it doesn't have any hidden restrictions. The software can be installed on a USB flash drive, but you can also install it in a local folder or even in the cloud. The setup process is straightforward, and there's no need to install any prerequisite tools or services.

The main user interface is laid out like the Windows 7 Start menu. You can find your apps in a list, on the left side of the menu, as well as shortcuts to the Library folders on the right side. You can add new apps by storing them on your flash drive and browsing for their executables on the software's interface, but a much easier way is to browse the app directory and point to the items you want to install.

The apps directory contains a vast range of portable apps, all neatly categorized in a list, and you only need to click their checkboxes and hit a "Next" button to download and install them on the flash drive. It is even possible to select multiple apps and install them all in one run. Regardless of how many apps you want to install, the software will take care of everything for you, so you don't have to go through multiple setup processes, though you may have to click an "Agree" button every now and again, if one or more apps require you to agree to some terms and conditions.

You can take your USB drive with the Platform and all your apps, plug it into any other computer, open up the launch menu and run the applications you need, without encountering any difficulties. It's a good way to run a cleanup job on a parent's computer for example. The apps are displayed in one list, but you can use a search function to locate specific items instantly or you can switch to a categories view mode, in which your apps are organized in different folders based on their category.

To make the software feel like your own, you can rearrange your apps in different categories. Additionally, the program lets you apply different themes to its interface, change font settings, tweak its behavior and much more. Another useful feature is the possibility of backing up the files on your flash drive, including apps and their settings. If something goes wrong with your portable drive, you can restore everything immediately, with just a few clicks, which is much more convenient than having to reinstall all your apps again.

If you take its vast apps catalog and all the customization options into account, you can think of the Platform as a regular home away from home.

You can download and install countless portable apps on a flash drive and launch them on any computer. The software organizes your portable apps on a convenient launch menu. You can customize the menu, as well as the program's behavior.

There are no serious drawbacks worth mentioning.

You can download Platform free here.
