Elementary OS Gets its Own AppCenter

Filed under
Software

The elementary OS team has released the first version of AppCenter, a tool used to install and remove software, designed to be beautiful, fast and lightweight.

AppCenter uses the same backend as the Lubuntu Software Center (libappstore) and Packagekit and since this is the first public release, there are missing features such as ratings, reviews and featured apps, but these features should be available in a future release. The plan is to allow AppCenter to also handle application updates, but for now this isn't available.
