on travel technology …and everything else
Came across this great piece of software called Ninite. It’s a handy little tool that helps you install all the little apps you love having on your laptop or desktop. They support a lot of applications and have them categorized as browsers, messaging, media, utilities, imaging, security and so on.
To start, visit the website and just select all your favorite applications from the list. Then click the “Get Installer” button. This will download a tiny installer file to your desktop. Run that installer and then go grab lunch. If you have a fast enough internet connection and a fast enough computer, but the time your back all the software would have been installed.
The whole process ran smoothly with no clicking those “Next” buttons or accepting any terms, etc. I love this app!
They have a Pro version as well which would make sense for IT departments in large companies.
