7 Best Apps to carry on your USB stick

The world is not a perfect place. Ever so often, one has to work on someone’s computer which is lacking in some small irritating way compared to yours. You are craving for what you’re used to, yet don’t want to change anything on the machine.
We tell you the best portable apps to carry around in your USB stick and use at work, school or any other place. These small executables are self-sufficient  and don’t modify anything on the computer, making them extremely handy in a number of situations.
1. VLC Media Player – Multi-format Media Player
The world’s favorite all-format media player is the most obvious inclusion. You’ll no longer curse the computer for not having the codecs to run your video file, or rather any video file. Simple and powerful : a must have!
2. Foxit PDF Reader – PDF file Viewer
The stupid machine doesn’t open .pdf files? No qualms, just use this lightweight reader. In fact, we recommend this over Adobe Reader for day-to-day use. Unlike the former, it doesn’t take ages to load and is especially great for computers low on resources.Foxit Reader Portable
