Snap is a package format developed by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu. There are thousands of Snap apps available in the Snap Store. Now here’s a list of Ubuntu’s top 10 favorite Snaps of 2018.

Top 10 Snaps in 2018

  1. Spotify
  2. Slack
  3. VLC
  4. Nextcloud
  5. Android Studio
  6. Discord
  7. Plex Media Server
  8. Xonotic
  9. Notepad-Plus-Plus

What Snaps do you use?

I personally use only a few Snaps in Solus. PhpStorm, Postman, Skype, Slack, Spotify. I would also use Chromium, but it doesn’t work for me at the moment.

To find out what snaps you have installed on your machine, you can run the following command:
