Canonical has published a list with the most downloaded free applications on Ubuntu Software Center, for March.As it was to be expected, Steam has a powerful grip on this chart and it's unlikely that it's going to get demoted any time soon. The April chart for top 10 free apps holds no surprises, just a few changes in the order and some comebacks.
IntelliJ IDEA 12 Community Edition is back in the chart, after a short absence and it takes the tenth place. This is a free and open source version of IntelliJ IDEA, a well-known IDE for Java, Groovy, Scala and Android.
flareGet, a multi-threaded and multi-segment download manager and accelerator is now in the ninth position. We reviewed flareGet and it turns out that it's an excellent utility.
Nitro, a task management software that will help people organize their days in a more efficient manner, that comes with Dropbox and Ubuntu One support, is in the eight place.
The trial version of CrossOver is in the seventh position. This application allows users to install and run Windows applications in a Linux environment, with the help of Wine.
Motorbike is in the sixth position. This is just a casual bike skills game, full of action and real physics dynamics. Be careful though, it only offers the first 10 levels for free.
Plex Media Server, an application that makes it possible for users to stream music, (local and online) videos and photos from the Ubuntu desktop to the TV, Roku box, Android phone, iPhone, PlayStation 3, and Xbox360, is now in position number five.
Splashtop Streamer, a high-performance audio-video streaming server, enabling remote access from an Android device (tablet/phone) or an iOS device (iPad/iPhone/iPod), is in the fourth place.
YouTube to MP3 takes the third position. This is an easy-to-use software that can be used to download YouTube videos as MP3.
Master PDF Editor, an application used to view, print and edit PDF and XPS files, is in the second place.
Steam, the client for Valve’s digital distribution platform, is in the first position, again. Unless something terrible happens, it's going to stay in this position for a very long time.
