Cameyo attempts to create a portable version of any application

Portable applications – those can be run directly from a folder or external drive (typically a USB thumb drive) – are increasingly popular as people realise just how useful they are. They enable you to not only take your favourite programs with you, but all your carefully crafted settings and preferences too.

Problem is, portable apps are still the exception rather than the norm. Cameyo aims to make it relatively simple to take any program and transform it into a single executable file, which can be run from any drive on any computer with all of your settings kept intact.

It’s simple: in theory. Run the program and click the Capture Installation button. Wait while Cameyo scans your computer, install the program in question, then click “Done” and wait while Cameyo sees what’s changed. These changes make up your portable application, and include any other running processes and open windows, so make sure all your programs are closed before running it.

After the process is complete, open the folder on your desktop and double-click your portable application to test it. It’s not guaranteed to work, and you may run into trouble depending on what else is running on your PC when using the program. A package editor is provided, enabling you to view what Registry keys and files have been captured and make limited changes, such as removing irrelevant files from being monitored.
 

Verdict:

A lot of effort is required to get the most out of this program, with no guarantee of success at the end, but Cameyo is an intriguing application that will hopefully benefit from further development.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
