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.


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.
