The insanely handy task management app Nitro has finally hit the Ubuntu Software Center.

And no, you’re not misunderstanding: for despite its creation way back in April, it has taken a fair ol’ while for the application to get approved, published, and stocked on the shelves of the Software Center…

Free, Nitro is also available for OSX (via the Mac App Store) and as a web app (via the Chrome Web Store).


Nitro stands out from a the deluge of other to-do/note-taking apps out there for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it looks good.

Tasks are divided cleanly; there’s no excessive toolbar to sort through, and all of the key features are within reach in the one window.

Secondly, it has some stellar features, including:

  • Smart lists
  • Recurring Tasks
  • Magic Sorting
  • Ubuntu One and Dropbox Sync
  • Tags and labels
  • Unity integration
  • Themes

Install Nitro in Ubuntu 12.10 & 12.04

Getting Nitro in Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 couldn’t be easier.

Just open up the Ubuntu Software Center and search for ‘nitro’. Hit the ‘Buy’ button (don’t worry, it’s a free app) and begin installation.

Hopefully the developers other apps, Stomcloud and Lightreadalso find their way out of the ‘backlog’ queue and land in the Software Center shortly.
