From the almost complete article series, the one that lists the best programs in Snap format is the one that I am having the most trouble writing. It is true that it is an absolutely arbitrary list, so I can modify the criteria at will, but what it is about is maintaining a certain consistency, and that is where the difficulty lies.
My idea is, if possible, not to mention programs that I would have included in previous lists. I also wanted to limit myself to programs that had been updated in 2022 and, of course, that I was using with some frequency. And here is the problem.
In the previous article I expressed my suspicion that with the Snap format the same thing could end up happening with Unity and Mir. That the Ubuntu developers end up throwing in the towel and adopting the majority solutions. It's still too early to say, but the truth is that the programs I have installed in Snap format are the same as always. For news I turn to FlatHub which usually has the most recent versions.
In the absence of further investigation, two factors must be taken into account. The first is that the developers are focused on porting the default applications to the Snap format. The second that most of the catalog are proprietary applications and many times paid and I do not usually use many of them.
All these paragraphs serve as an explanation of why this list does not include too many new features.

The best programs in Snap format
It must be the app that I recommended the most times in my blogging career. With a slick user interface that very few open source titles have, Super Productivity is ideal for freelancers and people who need to organize their activities.
It is cross-platform and the synchronization is done using GitHub, GitLab or Jira, which guarantees the privacy of the information generated.
It also includes tools for monitoring and classifying the activity carried out and a Pomodoro timer.
Most of the applications available for translation are graphical interfaces for Google, Bing or similar translators. In this case, use your own translation service. From the point of view of the user interface, the classic split window system is used, one for the source text and another for the translated one. The dark mode is appreciated, but the possibility of increasing the size or modifying the typography is missing.
At least when it comes to the translation from English to Spanish (The program works with more than 100 languages) it is of very good quality, although it alternates without a discernible pattern between tú and usted or feminine and masculine gender.
The excellent quality of pronunciation is surprising. The voice is almost natural and far from the robotic pronunciation that free voice synthesis alternatives usually have.
Linux has very good clients for downloading torrents, but sometimes you have to lend your computer to people who are reluctant to use new programs. The Snap package format allows you to use Windows programs by adding Wine, the compatibility tool. In this way we can run uTorrents (and other titles) of the Microsoft operating system on Linux.
For those who don't know it, uTorrent allows you to schedule downloads and automatically adjust bandwidth to reduce waiting times. The program consumes very few resources.
In this case we have a news reader that does not require registration. You can work with cloud-based news readers and RSS feeds. Articles can be categorized into multiple categories and read offline.
One of the reasons why I like this program is that it has several themes to customize the display as well as being able to change the font and modify its size.
