Posted April 7, 2022 by linmob ‐ 4 min read
Let's have a quick and dirty blog post listing all the additions to the app list in the first quarter of 2022!
- Osmin, a GPS Navigator On-Road/Off-Road for Android, Sailfish and Linux phones. A great QtQuick maps app. It’s available in Manjaro's repos, so if you are using Manjaro or Arch,1 do give it a try. Thanks Karry for contributing this app!
- Store Cards,a Tk based utility to keep all your store cards on your linux phone.
- Strike is Maui's simple minimal IDE for the Linux phones. Code, build, and run from the phone!
No apps were added in February.🧐
- GadgetController, a pythonic GTK/libhandy utility to use your PinePhone as an USB gadget.
- Huely, an app to control WiFi lights compatible with the Android Magic Home app using this simple app. Sadly it seems to be a few pixels to wide, so it's not a 5.
- Déjà Dup Backups, a duplicity based simple backup tool that uses GTK4/libadwaita for a convergent UI,
- Warpinator, an utility allowing you to easily connect multiple computers on a local area network and share files quickly and securely, developed for Linux Mint,
- cpupower-gui, a graphical program that is used to change the scaling frequency limits of your CPU,
- DieBahn, a GTK4 frontend for the travel information of the german railway,
- Reactions, written in Zig, GTK4 and libadwaita, it uses the GIPHY search API,
- Passes, a simple GTK4/libadwaita tool that allows you to import and take your digital passes (.pkpass files) with you,
- Polari, a simple IRC Client that is designed to integrate seamlessly with GNOME, working on mobile since its GTK4/libadwaita overhaul for release 42, There's a bug with quick nickname editing, not sure whether Polari or Squeekboard are at fault here, - but it generally works, which is awesome, as [mobile friendly IRC clients|(https://linuxphoneapps.org/categories/irc-client/) are rare!
- Powersupply, a PinePhone power status tool that should have been added forever ago,
- Euterpe GTK, a convergent desktop and mobile client for Euterpe, a self-hostable music streaming server, realized with GTK3/libhandy,
- Mepo a fast, simple, and hackable OSM map viewer for Linux, designed with the Pinephone & mobile linux in mind; realized with Zig and SDL, Thanks milesalan for creating and adding this amazingly performant little maps app!
- Random, a GTK4/libadwaita utility that make randomization easy so you don't need to flip a physical coin,
- Furtherance, a time tracking app written in Rust with GTK 4/libadwaita, Unfortunately ciirca 40 pixels too wide, sadly crashes while adding tasks on aarch64.
- WhatsWeb, an Electron frontend for WhatsApp Web for Mobile Linux Devices, that makes web.whatsapp.com responsive,
- Friendiqa, a Qt/QML App for Friendica, a federated, decentralized social network,
- Swatch, a color palette manager utilizing GTK4 and libadwaita, and finally
- Karlender, a GTK4/libadwaita, mobile-friendly calendar application written in Rust supporting CalDAV. Karlender is really nice, as it supports a day view - something GNOME Calendar (be it in its GTK4/libadwaita non-mobile friendly upstream or its adaptive port by Purism) just does not offer.
Thanks to everyone involved in developing and submitting these apps!👏
Other noteworthy changes
The re-evaluation of archived apps in the process of launching this site was really worth it: Turns out that the only Discord app we ever listed, gtkcord3, once abandoned, was revived by its developer and is definitely better than no option for all you Discord users!
