I recently downloaded the PortableApps.com Launcher software and found it to be very user friendly. The interface was easy to understand and the menu options were clear and intuitive. The ability to install and launch applications directly from the launcher was a great feature. I also liked the fact that I could customize the launcher with my own background and icon set. The software also integrated with my existing portable apps, making them much easier to access. I found the overall speed of the launcher to be satisfactory and had no issues with performance. The only thing I wasn't a huge fan of was how it took up quite a bit of space on my computer.
