Install programs on a USB key
Installing software to a USB key is a handy way to ensure your favourite programs are always to hand, wherever you are. Liberkey can include more than 300 different programs.
This download is just the Liberkey interface. Once it has installed it will automatically launch the next installation wizard that helps you select the software you want.
There are three templates up to the Ultimate suite with around 600MB of programs. Luckily this only requires a further download of around 160MB.
The LiberKey menu looks a lot like the Windows Start Menu. Unlike the Portable Apps menu it can contain subfolders.
The big ommisssion is any form of office suite. Portable Apps comes with Libreoffice and Abiword is also an option. Notepad++ is supplied as a text editor but it's not a word processor.
Apart from this gap, the selection of programs is broad and varied. Network tools include Teamviewer for getting help over the internet and Recuva for recovering deleted files. There are also editors for photos, video and music.
Liberkeys may look a little less polished compared to Portableapps but the menu does organise apps better. The lack of a proper office suite is a big disappointment though.
