Quickie Post: Calibre to go “Portable” Soon?

Filed under: calibre, ebook, kindle — talkintech @ 12:55 am

When I was using the EeePC with Windows XP, one of my favorite programs was PortableApps.  PortableApps allows me to run my preferred applications without actually installing it on my Eee’s meager 4GB storage.

I just learned that PortableApps is now working on a portable version of Calibre.  This is good news because if this pushes through, then I can save/maintain my Calibre eBook library from within a single flashdrive.  It will also be quite handy for people who use multiple computers, allowing them to access and maintain their library without having to install Calibre on each computer that they use.

What’s more exciting use for this?  Users can even save the portable version of Calibre from within their Kindle! Cool huh?
