Apps Made For elementary OS
I’ve collected a number of apps which works and looks really well in elementary OS. These are apps which are not installed by default, but they seem like native elementary apps, they adopt the elementary HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) and their developers promoted these on channels belonging to elementary. Here’s a non-complete list, enjoy!
