Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

In this case, ad supported means that it has also become nagware with suddenly opening adf.ly links and payment requests. Additionally, I do not seem to be able to use this fully (is it because I haven't paid?): the download button does not work or opens those adf.ly or PayPal links. I think I will not use this any longer...

Hello people and Emka,
One year ago, i first started z33k just for fun and for myself. Then, i decided to spread it as it was and sometimes add new features.
One year after, z33k was downloaded more than 42000 times and is used everyday by many people from everywhere on the planet...
Since that time, i can't imagine the mega-tons of searched, found, downloaded MP3 and hours of cool music listened... for free... instead of buying them on itunes, amazon or where ever you want... right ?
Since that time too, no feedback, no bugs reports, no mail, no question, no thanks, nothing... a total blackhole :)
That's why i decided to spread a full-free-with-ads version and now asking 6.66$ for my work and my time to get a full-no-ads version.
Users have now the choice with that or other tools as there are tons like mine (and probably better than mine, songr portable for example) or even go itunes/amazon/etc...
Anyway, people can send me email and try to ask for a non-nagware version that i maybe will compil for them and for free... If and when i'll have time...
I'm also open to any suggestions...
Kindly.

I acknowledge that sucks. I'd be happy to make suggestions or even help out with freeware in the future that tries to illicit user feedback, bug reports, and even donations. However, this is a freeware site (it's right in the name) so not much time or consideration are given to non-freeware programs.

I guess the adware/payware route didn't pay off in the end... :evil:

Hello people,
As I really take care about comments, I post (late) replies (my life mode [on]) :)
Last 3 months I've in fact switched to Android dev' apps because it's an amazing (and crual!) world, so most of the main code of z33k (with many many many many improvments and hard working...) is now available on android mobile plateform. The name chosen for this app' is "kokomo mp3 download".
Some of you will ask why this f*****g name "kokomo" ? Just because when compiling the project i was listening to this song... Anyway... :)
You can have it (for free with no ads, both on the google play store or via an APK) there :
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... mo.android
http://kokomo.meximas.com
I've also made a same-as-the-free but donate version available on the google play store at 0.99$ (arg! it's not free!) Not for profits, just for fun, there :
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... te.android
z33k (Not completely abandoned...) is still (only for you...) available there : http://kokomo.meximas.com/z33k/z33k.exe
It's a full (no ads) and latest compilation version (7.0).
There are, now, tons of bugs inside, but still almost working...
Maybe one day i will release a new (free) version on PC.
Very kind regards.
z33k.software.

Old thread update: this program is no longer available - a cursory search of various sites found no mirror of the program.
