6.1 Using PickMeApp with PAD files

To help PickMeApp recognize PAD files, the files need to be uploaded to one of your PickMeApp profiles. As soon as a PAD file is uploaded to a PickMeApp profile, PickMeApp will read the PAD file’s application description, allowing it to download an application package and run an application installer upon request.

Moreover, if the PAD file includes the special TAD PickMeApp extension, PickMeApp can perform a one-click install of several chosen applications at once.

To use PickMeApp with PAD files:

  1. Go to software repositories and download PAD files of interesting applications.
  2. Import PAD files to an existing PickMeApp profile or create a new profile with the PAD files.
  3. PickMeApp will recognize the files and list those applications on the Right Panel, alongside with other installation packages and captured applications. Note that all standard PickMeApp features are applicable to application descriptors.
