Cameyo releases version 2.0 of its free app virtualization product

Application virtualization provider announces a major new version of its free product

Cloud, apps, virtualization. Cameyo 2.0 links those 3 words together. The only 100% free app virtualization software provider is going farther than ever before with its long-expected 2.0 release.

By introducing a new virtual apps library, Cameyo 2.0 users can easily find, download and try ready-to-use virtual apps. By eliminating the need to install software, users can now try hundreds of apps while keeping their computer unaffected, stable and fast. “It is known for a fact that computers are speedy when you first install them”, notes author Cameyoco. “But then as you install more and more Software, your system’s stability & performance degrades over time. By letting users try, use and remove software without ever having to install it, we essentially help people fall in love again with Windows apps.”

Also among the highlights of Cameyo 2.0 is Windows 8 support. Virtual apps can now run on any platform from Windows XP to Windows 8, in both 32-bit and 64-bit native formats.

New integration features provide a richer user experience for virtual app. Virtual apps can now be added as either persistent or non-persistent layer into Windows. By reproducing their shortcuts & file associations and context menus, virtual apps now look as if they were truly a part of the system.

The new CameyoBox lets users access their virtual apps from anywhere, using their Cameyo Online account. Apps packaged online via Cameyo’s Online Packager are automatically made available in their creator’s CameyoBox.
