What are the most beautiful applications you've ever used on Linux?

Unlike macOS (and even now Windows), Linux has always had the bad reputation of being ugly. Which is not true if you ask me, but not totally wrong either. I've recently switched to elementary OS and deeply customized it with GTK themes, icon packs - you name it - but I'm still using a few apps that are painfully ugly. I'd be happy to know which new apps (or even alternatives) you'd recommend.

    Zenkit Desktop Apps

    Organize your projects and team. Now on Mac, Windows, Linux.

    The Linux Desktop App is clean and can be used offline as well. Organize anything you want - shopping list, plan your next trip, manage projects,... With the App, I can use Shortcuts which makes it even easier to use. There are a lot of features but you just see them, when you need them;) And you are able to change the background!

      It's a really easy to use solution for tracking your projects and workload, regardless of how simple or complex a system you use for doing so.

      I enjoy it because it allowed me to start with a simple list, but then move to a visual representation over time.

      Love the new desktop app for Zenkit. Have only tried on Mac OS but I am guessing even the Windows app would be smooth.

    It's done very well...then there is also slack/atom/sublime that have a nice design and the new skype alpha is not bad too.

    Slack not only just works, but looks good no matter what platform it's on. It's not the most beautiful app I've ever seen, but for Linux, it's amazing.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

    The "whole of KDE Neon" because no competition. It's quite simply the best Linux desktop experience.
  6. Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
