For a different perspective about weather-related applications,

PortableApps hosts v2.20, the official website v3.0.1. Is there a reason for this great discrepancy?

bzl333 on 2013-02-03 20:51

now the way to change the download directory:

edit the gPodderPortable.ini file within the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory and change the GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=%PAL:DataDir%\config\Downloads line to something else. But it would be reset on each upgrade.

from a thread in the PortableApps forum

seems to work.

RetroShare v0.6.1

  • 49MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by lautrepay

Retroshare is a feature-rich communications platform for small groups of users with a focus on privacy. The program includes an exclusive and secure toolset for instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, direct messages (e-mail), file server, VoIP, channels for distributing content, and link exchange. It functions as an open, distributed alternative to many commercial groupware programs.

Additional features include RSS feed reader, status messages (away/busy), different modes for low traffic, transfer and disk space limits, plugins, skins, and much more. Cross-platform (Mac, Linux, BSD).

Great for small businesses, groups, and a safer alternative to most file sharing methods. Networks can be small or large, but communications between users are limited by default to friends and friends-of-friends, with more specific controls available.

@This is me
It would be perfect if it supported EXIF.

Specular on 2015-05-03 13:47

@smaragdus, EXIF metadata (rotation at least) is a planned feature, judging by the Github issues page.

If any devs out are there feel like adding support for it I'm also sure the author would welcome it :)

smaragdus on 2015-11-15 19:00

@Specular
Since version 1.5.0 Pictus offers EXIF orientation support! ;)
By the way the latest version is 1.5.1.
