Ubuntu’s Best Selling Apps for May 2013

The ten best-selling Ubuntu applications during the month of May have been revealed.

What hasn’t been revealed is a surprise. Stormcloud, a desktop-based weather app, remains the top-selling app on Ubuntu for the 5th consecutive month in a row, selling 78 copies between May 1st and May 31st.

This position is all the more impressive in light of the forecasts feature in the app being hampered by a Yahoo! Weather API curtailing, and the app not being available to buy on Ubuntu 13.10.

Elsewhere

Unusually there are no new entries in last month’s chart, but two Minecraft installers, MC Launcher ($2.99) & Mini Minecraft Launcher ($4), do make a reappearance.

Braid continues to sell enough to chart. Its appearance for May means it has now been in the Ubuntu’s Top 10 selling applications for 20 months in a row.
