    Hm, I’ll have to check out Create Launcher. Been wanting something like that for a while now.

  • Sgt.Romeo9

    I would really like to see some actual numbers if you don’t mind. Especially when it comes to the top 2 free apps. Would love to see how many Ubuntu gamers are playing those 2 games from EA.

  • Sabun

    Cool, I’ve been looking at Defense Zone for a while. Anyone care to give me some info on whether it’s truly worth it? I play games on Ubuntu in a Desktop environment if that matters.

    If people need an app for creating launchers, then I would say we have failed a bit on usability. It should be a real easy task no matter level of knowledge on the user-side, IMO.

    • Benjamin Justice

      Well one can click “keep in launcher” on an applications icon.

      The launcher creator app there is very powerful for creating customized launchers.

      However integrating this application into Ubuntu in some way would be a huge plus for usability.
