List of Clean, Official Portable Applications
We at ~thumbapps~ don't just make portable version of any freeware or free & open source software/FOSS. There are usually some criteria to start a portable work:
  1. It's not available at PortableApps.com/PA.c.
  2. It's available at PA.c, but not as full-standalone-offline package—but online installer which would requires Internet connection. Most people don't have that kind of easy and relatively cheap access to Internet—especially in most of developing and usually corrupt... :) countries around the world. These people—including us—prefer to download anything via resumeable and accelerated downloader like FDM/Free Download Manager or uTorrent, for example. Online installer usually just way too slow and unresumeable :(—yes, Internet connection in our countries sometimes just disconnected for no apparent reasons.
  3. It's available at PA.c, but we think we can add some value to our version, for example our Opera portable browser—stable, beta, and developer editions—can be updated to the next build from within the portable app.
  4. The publisher provides portable version, but some features missing. Like for example Bandizip portable, the official version only in 32-bit and the context menu—which is essential for most users—is disabled.
  5. The publisher provides portable version, but it's still unclean. It still writes some settings to the registry and/or Windows data folders.
But along the way, we found some official portable versions that are actually clean and we can ~just run it~ without much additional portablization. And this blog article is written for this purpose.
   As of Nov, 2017 we have listed almost 70 clean official apps and almost 300 of portable apps release, so you have almost 400 portable applications available for you just from thumbapps.org!
   Here's the list by category, we'll add more as our portablization journey continues, only if God wills!

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software Classic/Studio) Portable, free, open source software for live streaming and recording!
"Video streaming apps are often expensive, not very good, or both expensive and not very good. Enter Open Broadcaster Software, a free, open-source solution which is super lightweight, includes many of the same options as software you can buy, and so far works beautifully for streaming games on Twitch.tv." —Tyler Wilde, PCGamer.com (Dec 4, 2012)
"Overall I've been very happy with OBS. The product works just like you'd expect, has pretty decent documentation (something that you usually do NOT see with open source projects) and has allowed me to do all of the things that I couldn't do with CamStudio, while retaining almost all of things that CamStudio could do." —Logan, loganslearnings.blogspot.com (May 2013)
"It's great for recording video from games." —Andrei David, PerfectGeeks.com

PotPlayer was also chosen by Lifehacker readers as the third most popular Blu-ray playback suite." —Wikipedia

However, it's packed with rich features under the hood, coming in handy even to pro users. It might just convince you to keep it around for a long time." —Mircea Dragomir, Softpedia.com (June 24th, 2015)

Atom Portable, a hackable text editor for the 21st Century!
"I came to Atom with a prejudice… the reported slowness and memory hungriness, made me to hesitate to try it… ... That’s the problem with information found on Internet: it quickly becomes stale… ... The minor issues mentioned above doesn’t prevent from using it: the good parts currently balance the bad ones. I will still recommend it. :-)" —Philippe Lhoste, philhosoft.github.io (2015-12-15)
"...overall editor performance has improved drastically over the past year, but it still lags behind other editors." —Clifford Fajardo, cliffordfajardo.com (January 24, 2016)
"Bad jokes aside, I was immediately struck by its insane slowness. For a text editor, it really takes a long time to launch! ... Aside from its slowness, and the fact that it eats RAM like an IDE, Atom is really a nice text editor. ... Atom seems to be what I want Emacs to be 1: an editor that’s extensible, mode-less and actively developed even though it is, sadly, just as heavy." —Lorenzo Villani, lorenzo.villani.me (06 Sep 2015)
Atom is a text editor that was originally conceived at GitHub as a way to combine the visual appeal of editors like Sublime Text with the extensibility and programmability of Emacs or Eclipse.
