Guidelines to contribute

Simply put the name of the application in the list. Link to its homepage or a guide on how to install it. Also write a short description for the application + add icon. Make sure it is put under the appropriate topic. If the application doesn’t fit in any existing topic, make a new one for it. Ensure everything is alphabetically sorted.

Unsure how to contribute?

Items marked with Open-Source Software are open-source software and link to the source code. Items marked with Nonfree are nonfree (as in nonfree beer) and may cost money to use.


Author’s note: Recently, I received feedback from you about the quality of some of the applications on this list. I have tested a lot of these, but not all. If you have any problems with the apps, please: -> head to the dev page (if available) -> make an issue for the dev there -> make an issue here so that I can consider whether I should remove the app from the list. Remember : Every piece of software has it’s own merits, so there will never be anything like “best app” or “selective list” here, thank you.
