Viber Portable, Connect. Freely!
"A neat idea implemented beautifully, but unless your friends are already on Viber, you may struggle to justify trying yet another VOiP service." —Nick Peers, PCAdvisor.co.uk (21 Jul 15)
"Viber is incredibly easy to use, lets you add favorites and it's fun. Users can send photos, videos, emoticons and stickers to their heart's content. Most importantly, you can call anyone around the world for free, provided your contact is using the service." —Molly Klinefelter, LaptopMag.com (June 5, 2013)

Portability Notes

  • Viber do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • We failed to portablize its paths stored in several SQLite file, so if you move this app., it might reset some of its settings.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.

Release History

6.9.5.1170 rev 1: Clean up Viber SendTo link.
6.9.0.1048: Not entirely portable. We failed to portablize paths in the settings (an SQLite database). Despite correct SQL queries (tested manually), it just won't write into the settings database programmatically. If you move the app. folder, it might result in some errors. That's why the long delay for this update ;)
