WriteMonkey Portable, a Windows zenware* writing application!
"While WriteMonkey is not the first full-screen text editor to emerge in recent years, it is one of the best executed ones I have seen so far." —Erez Zukerman, (Nov 30, 2011 4:07 PM)
"An almost perfect tool for writers. Its interface is pared-back, but still packed with little touches that make it easier to commit your words to the page. ... If you're adept with keyboard shortcuts, the transition from the likes of Word to WriteMonkey will be easier,... you could make use of the solitary context menu which is accessed with a quick right-click." —Mark Wilson, (Aug 6, 2016)
"WriteMonkey hits all the right zenware buttons." —William, WilliamKing.Me (April 9, 2014)
Writemonkey is a Windows zenware* writing application with an extremely stripped down user interface, leaving you alone with your thoughts and your words. It is light, fast and free.
   WriteMonkey tries to replicate the typewriter experience in several fun ways.
   If you are working on a long-form project such as a book or a research paper, Writemonkey's new Jumps tool can come in handy. It puts a project management interface right into the editor.
   These days, much of our writing goes directly to the Web. WriteMonkey supports both Markdown and Textile, two writing systems that can translate into simple HTML.

Tomahawk Portable, music is everywhere; now you don't have to be!
"...Tomahawk can play tracks from your Tomahawk friends’ computers, which makes Tomahawk a P2P streaming client with which you can listen to your friends’ collections, tap into your work computer’s music from your home computer, and so on." —Eliot van Buskirk, (02.22.12 2:09 PM)
"First of all, users need to understand that this is more of a cloud music player, meaning that you will have to choose the services that you plan to use from the options section. There are a lot of them, some more famous than others and you can select them all. A number of those, like Grooveshark for example, will need login credentials, but most don't require any kind of account." —Silviu Stahie, (November 26th, 2014 15:58 GMT)
"One of the great things about the player is that you can use it even if you have no local songs provided that you have enabled a couple of plugins. ... It offers lots of features that set it apart from other players including aggregation of multiple services into a single application, cross-platform availability and social features." —Martin Brinkmann, (April 20, 2015)
Tomahawk is a new kind of music player that invites all your streams, downloads, cloud music storage, playlists, radio stations and friends to the same party. It's about time they all mingle.

WebTorrent Portable, streaming browser torrent client!
"One of the most exciting uses for WebTorrent is peer-assisted delivery. Non-profit projects like Wikipedia and the Internet Archive could reduce bandwidth and hosting costs by letting visitors chip in. Popular content is served browser-to-browser, quickly and cheaply. Rarely-accessed content is served reliably over HTTP from the origin server." —Feross Aboukhadijeh, founder
"Besides being able to stream torrents to your desktop, WebTorrent Desktop can also stream torrents to AirPlay, Chromecast, and DLNA." —Andrew, (May 16, 2016)
"One problem with using WebRTC to facilitate downloads within your browser is that VPN users really should disable WebRTC, as it can leak your real IP address to websites. I did, however, find that downloading via worked fine in Chrome with the WebRTC Leak Prevent add-on installed (as this prevents IP leaks, but only partially disables WebRTC)." —Douglas Crawford, (2016-04-11)
WebTorrent Desktop is for streaming torrents, whether it's video from the Internet Archive, music from Creative Commons, or audiobooks from Librivox, you can play it right away. You don't have to wait for it to finish downloading.

WeChat Portable, chat with your friends instantly via voice messages, texts, or images!
"WeChat offers more functionality than Whats App and Viber and is free of charge. ... Other messaging apps like WhatsApp and Viber offer similar core communications functionality.... However, WeChat offers free voice and video calls, moments and games which WhatsApp doesn’t. ... So basically WeChat combines the best of Whatsapp with the best of Skype!" —jeff_elephant/zobia22, (‎14-08-2014 16:25)

Tupí Portable, Open 2D Magic!
"Tupi is intuitive and functional, either appropriate for animation beginners as for advanced artists. Also, its capacity to interact with other free software projects (Gimp, Inkscape, Krita, etc) extends its features." —Gustavo Deveze (a user), Argentina (2016)
"I love Tupi because it's such an easy and fun way to make animations to liven up my videos, it's a really powerful program with an amazingly friendly feel." —Calvin Rawl (a user), England (2016)
"Tupi is an easy-to-use software but don't get me wrong, its usability level increases the power and quality of your works if you want to create animated shorts. I think it could be used for feature films too using different animation techniques. Its render implementation is very fast compared with other applications. You can illustrate directly on it or just export your sketches to third-part tools. My conclusion: Tupi is a software with a lot of potential." —
Jorge Andrade (a user), Venezuela (2016)
Tupí is a design and authoring tool for 2D Animation for 8-100 years old kids :)
