The Best Ubuntu Apps

Best Ubuntu Apps. There are countless apps or applications for Ubuntu and other Linux distros available. However, I feel strongly that these five Linux apps are must have software, especially the first four software titles. The latter is simply an application I feel strongly that most of us who have large ebook libraries ought to be using.

#Best Ubuntu Apps

#Support the Patreon, now with new Just Ask Matt support options –

##Bleachbit – Free up disk space, keep things tidy. Tidy up browser databases, delete forgotten logs and more.

##Guvcview – If you need to manage, tweak or adjust your webcam, this app is a must have.

##Gparted – While totally doable from the command line, Gparted makes partition management simple, easily understood and non-threatening.

##Timeshift – The single best backup utility I’ve ever used for desktop Linux users. It relies on rsync while sharing common files in-between syncs to save drive space. Or if you prefer, you can use BTRFS snapshots instead. There are countless user file backup tools, Timeshift actually backs up your system state.

##Calibre – For those of us with huge ebook libraries (they do exist outside of a Kindle/Amazon world after all, this is the absolute best for ebook management, ebook reader syncing available.
