The first week has finished successfully and with two more weeks remaining, we can expect more apps. Some of the great apps have been created by the developers and active discussions are going on Ubuntu app showdown subreddit and AskUbuntu. Here are the few highlights of the best apps from the lot:
We start with some fun stuff, so here is a video of Let It Flow, a fun game created by a Java Developer named Robert Roth.
Also for those who want to build their apps in Ubuntu using Quickly, Michael Hall has created a GTK interface for Quickly with HUD support
Human Task is a simple task manager inspired a lot from Ubuntu theme, here is the screenshot of it
For all web developers, a user named devsyed has created an app that will allow you to make new web forms quickly using drag and drop mechanism
We all miss an app that will allow us to control our phones isnt it? AlexFG has stood up to our demands and has created an app to read and send SMS and USSD requests direct from the desktop after connecting your phone with the PC.
If you use ClamAV and wanted a GUI so that you don't have to type in the commands, Clamour is the app for you
jpiiIRC is a simple (really simple) IRC client for all IRC your needs
We can clearly see that Ubuntu has got the attention of developers and it will only enhance the users experience. We also hope that the developes will make these apps available for other Linux distribution also so other users can also benefit for it and enrich the entire Linux ecosystem.
If you missed the first week, you don't need to worry as a lot of time is still there to follow up in the upcoming two weeks. So get started, create an Ubuntu app and get a chance to win a laptop or smartphone.
