Portable Apps for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Now Available for Download

Being the first time we introduce our readers to portable apps for Ubuntu, we would like to let them how these apps actually work. First of all, the available apps (see the full list below) are freely distributed via the Orbital-Apps.com website in the .orb compressed file format to save space on the USB thumb drive.

The apps will automatically enter the “Portable/Persistent Mode” when they are run from the USB stick, which means that all settings will be stored on the thumb drive. Of course, this means that no installation is required, but you’ll need to first download the ORB Launcher app from the project’s website.
