We're close, for now...we hope ;)
We decide to stop our work on thumbapps.org...
   As you've all been reading on the side bar these past 6 months, this enterprise can't really pay for itself—let alone for us (me the poor developer and my beloved folks).
   We need time to regroup to think out ways to resume thumbapps.org or do something else that might be more profitable. (Let's hope that silly double negative in the title will do wonders and actually make this closing just another April fool :)
   Ok, now...
   We will release our last custom PortableApps.com Development Suite in the coming days or weeks to let you do your own DIY upgrade.
   We might update some of our release in the future—cause we need/use it anyway—but it won't closely follow the official software update release. (But don't hold your breath... :)
   As the Messenger [sas] said centuries ago, "If you slaughter, make it sharp and quick," and so... that's it![]

PS. I you want to comment you can do it on one of our social media...

QuickViewer Portable, an ultra-fast Windows image viewer!
"QuickViewer is a very fast image viewer for Windows; maybe the fastest there is as of today. It is portable, updated regularly by its author, and open source on top of all that." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (June 27, 2017)
"It has two-page display, right-open, zoom in, zoom out, full screen display function so that it can be used as a book viewer, and you can assign each operation to the shot cut key from "keyboard input setting" in the help menu." —SoftNavi.com (Apr 7, 2017)
"...we must say that it is not only images in folders but also a portable program that displays images from .zip or 7Z compressed folders." —Göktürk, indir5.com (Mar 25, 2017)
QuickViewer is an ultra-fast image viewer for Microsoft Windows devices that has been designed from the ground up for speed.

ActivePresenter Portable, screen recorder - screencast software!
"Great software for creating training videos." —Jacky Nguyen (a user), Capterra.com (Mar 05, 2017)
"Compared to the alternatives in the genre, ActivePresenter is not a small program – download is 36.6MB installing to 83.4MB. But, once you see the features included in this outstanding software, you can fully appreciate the ‘additional’ megabytes." —Jim Hillier, DavesComputerTips.com (July 27, 2012)
"A lot of functionality; ability to save sessions as Projects to be returned to later; editing interface for adding text, thought bubbles and the like; ability to export to AVI, WMV, MP4, and WebM. ... Editor difficult to use because users cannot link together all the individual slides that ActivePresenter creates; Smart Capture mode is a promising idea, but poorly executed...." —Gizmos Freeware editor, techsupportalert.com (2016-05-18)

Wireshark Portable, the network protocol analyzer (with the industry-standard Windows packet capture library)!
"Finding fault with Wireshark is tough, but for the enterprise user the glaring issue is the lack of formal documentation and support. ... Wireshark is the defacto standard for open source network analysis." —Jack Wallen, TechRepublic.com (August 17, 2009, 12:43 AM PST)
"I can tell you, it's not only free, it's does so much more than most of the competition. ...keeping one step ahead of (or at least on the same page as) the bad guys by using analysis tools like Wireshark gives you that much more of an edge in keeping your network secure as well as running at top efficiency." —Samara Lynn, PCMag.com (February 18, 2010)
"There is no denial that Wireshark features an impressive amount of features, all of them aimed at power users. ...it is a complex and very capable analyzer, comparable and, in some cases, better than paid solutions." —Ionut Ilascu, Softpedia.com (January 23rd, 2014 21:21 GMT)
Wireshark solves the problem of being able to analyze network traffic on any size network. Wireshark does this with the power often found in more costly tools, but for free.
   So any IT department in need of a powerful network analyzer, but without the budget to purchase such power, can turn to Wireshark and miss nary a feature.

WhatsApp Portable, Simple. Secure. Reliable messaging!
"In a quick session with the app, I found it fast and responsive. A desktop app may feel like a small thing, but messaging apps derive part of their power from ubiquity — the more places you can access them, the more often you'll use them. WhatsApp has more than 1 billion users already. As of today, they have one more reason to keep it open all day." —Casey Newton@CaseyNewton, theverge.com (May 10, 2016, 7:08pm EDT)
"The apps are synced with WhatsApp on your mobile device so you won't miss any messages. ... The apps run on your desktop, meaning you'll have support for things like native desktop notifications and keyboard shortcuts." —Angela Moscaritolo, PCMag.com (May 11, 2016 10:50AM EST)
"Great app. All I need. ... Helps me to stay connected, easy to navigate." —sheilaksm (a user), download.cnet.com (April 14, 2017)

Yandex Browser Portable, secure and anonymous browser!
"Yandex is a handsome and fast browser. But it is too much like Chrome for my comfort. Moreover, it localizes most of its functionality, taking away some of its international charm. Stands to reason, when you think about it, as you end up with Yandex + Yandex versus Google + Google Chrome using pretty much the same technology, and this is what the Russian market needs. However, for anyone outside Russia, the combination of language searches, translations and suggestions might be too much." —dedoimedo.com (April 27, 2013)
"But all in all, the browser seems to be good to go as an option for daily internet activities. Its additional features include mouse gestures, notifications from Facebook and Twitter, document/e-book viewer, safe browsing, and webpage translator, which puts it on par with today’s alternatives." —Andrii Degeler theNextWeb.com (27 Nov '14, 06:55pm)
"Design wise, Yandex’s concept browser borrows heavily from Microsoft’s Windows 8 redesign, from two years ago." —Natasha Lomas (@riptari), techcrunch.com (Nov 28, 2014)
Yandex Browser, stylized as Yandex.Browser, (Russian: Яндекс.Браузер) is a freeware web browser developed by the Russian web search corporation Yandex that uses the Blink layout engine and is based on the Chromium open source project.

Discord Portable, all-in-one voice and text chat!
