Flathub updates the interface of its website, which now has the design of a real software store

New Flathub design

“Flathub is the application store for Linux”, you can read in, of course, Flatub. From the beginning it has intended to be that general application store for Linux, and it is achieving it. I think it has no competition, as much as it may hurt Canonical, since most developers opt to offer their software in flatpak packages before doing so in snap format. And with changes like the one we bring you today, things are looking even better.

Take a look at the header screenshot. Doesn't it remind you of GNOME Software? Have a highlights section at the top, in an interactive element; below, the application of the day; to its right, the instructions for adding support for Flathub to our Linux distribution; and then the different sections: trends, popular, new and updated. Very different from how it was before.

Flathub is a better software store every day

Old version of the software store

Last week Flathub was like the image above these lines. To begin with, I would go to the main page, which could be considered normal behavior until you go to the new version and directs you directly to an option in the language your browser is set to. If you are wondering why the apps don't have an icon, simply because it is a screenshot of a website that has the page in its registry, like a time machine.

The change, at least for now, has remained on the main page from your website, which is no small thing. When we click on the card of any app, what we see is the same as what we have been seeing until now. What it also does not do is install the applications from the "install" button, unless the software store of our distribution, the real one, the one where we get the applications, is compatible.

Without making much noise, Flathub continues to take steps to become our favorite option for installing applications on Linux no matter what distribution we are on. Changes like this do nothing but contribute, and will surely come like rain for users of distributions that do not have their own store.
