Hi all, i have one USC app (uberwriter). 

From 12.10 to 13.04 there was an automatic update. But from 13.04 to 13.10 not. Is this a temporary issue (I noticed steam isn't available as well) or do I have to reupload? I have quite some angry users! And you didn't notify me or anything, so I am quite disappointed! +Michael Hall +Jorge Castro do you know anything about this?

Alright guys, awesome community!

So it's almost christmas and I am still opening my mailbox every morning waiting for the Ubuntu Shirt I should have earned in the ubuntu appshowdown :) Is it still in the pipeline or were there too many submissions to hand out tshirts to everyone?

I'm a little sad :'(

Hi all,

if you're using Quickly and Sublime Text 2 and haven't figured out Build Commands for ST2 yet, here is mine (really simple):

{
"cmd": ["quickly", "run", "-v"],
"working_dir": "$file_path"
}

The -v is for verbose output. Now you can just press CTRL+B and don't need to open a terminal to fire up your Quickly Application :)

App Ideas

Hi everbody, I just wanted to discuss some App Ideas of mine and see if you got some, too :)

1. Many users are complaining about eBooks inside the Software Center, so it might be cool to have a dedicated bookshelf application, where you might use an API to be able to buy the books or magazines through the software center
2. I've also read complaints about font discovery in the Software center. So an app that is a) a great font manager and b) allows you to install fonts from the software center could be really, really cool
3. Another client for Ubuntu One (they have an extensive API, so it should be doable). Because, the current U1 client just looks like ... e.g. beautiful mockup: http://spiceofdesign.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-One-Concept-346030025

How 'bout you?

I'd love to see some of these realized and would be happy to help out :) Do you have any ideas (but maybe no time to work on them?) Any applications that you'd like to see on ubuntu?

Would be cool if we could get something collaborative going on here!

1. I'd love to see this kind of application. Apart from seeing what's in USC it could catalogue your existing PDF and other ebook files without bothering user about searching computer's folders.
2. There's already great app for managing fonts but it has no access to USC, so maybe it'd be good to speak to it's developer about extending functionality. http://code.google.com/p/font-manager/
3. Ubuntu One got great designed website but it's desktop or Android app UI is far from nice looking.

App Showcase  - 
 
My app is the UberWriter (http://uberwriter.wolfvollprecht.de), a beautiful markdown editor. I made it for the ubuntu appshowdown last year. It started as a little hobby-project but got some nice traction. I've already sold 13 copies in the ubuntu software center which is really nice since I didn't invest much in advertising.

I think I have chosen an interesting path, because I sell the application while keeping it completely open source (under GPL-3). So everybody is still free to get it through my PPA or compile it themselves.

Back in the day I wrote a little about the reasons why I did so. I would be glad to hear your opinions on that: http://wolfvollprecht.de/blog/why-uberwriter-is-not-gratis-in-the-usc-/
