More and more snaps are being created monthly! For those that may not know, Snaps are a new way for developers to package their apps, bringing with it many advantages over the more traditional package formats such as .deb, .rpm, and others. Snaps are secure, isolated and allow apps to be rolled back should an issue occur. Snaps really are the future of Linux application packaging.
