Top 10 Ubuntu App Downloads for August 2012

MC Launcher and Master PDF Editor lead the charts!

Canonical published a few minutes ago, September 12th, the top 10 app downloads for August 2012, from Ubuntu Software Center.

On the paid apps chart, it looks like last month's first place Braid game has been dethroned by a new tool, MC-Launcher, a Minecraft mod installator launcher, followed closely by some of the best games from the Humble Indie Bundle V, Bastion and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

On the other hand, another new app took the first place on the free apps chart, Master PDF Editor, a PDF and XPS editor.
