Elementary AppCentre Concept

85 Favourites
A concept for a software installer/update manager for elementary. Fairly self explanatory, with the first screen being the home screen, the second a single application view and the third the updates screen.

Just offering a perception that came in from a first glance - color of icon / button background of uninstalled / installing / installed is the same? how about indicating status more saliently?

Oh, wow. This needs to happen. I heard AppCentre is coming in the Isis release - if it's anything like this, it's going to be great.

some ideas: maybe change the color of the update button orange to blue,maybe instead of the arrow the number of how many updates,centralize the total size : )

I love the whole thing but I do have 1 thing I would like to point out. I think that the updates and download buttons on the title bar should not be replaced by the All Applications>Office>Writer. Otherwise it is totally awesome! Keep up the good work

1) The top banner is really stunning but the info and the checked icon bother me.
2) I don't think the info button is needed because if the user wants to get information about the app he will simply click on the app icon itself.
3) I would replace the AppCenter icon by a home icon on the main toolbar.

I want to make this so bad. You have no idea. I've been sitting here wanting to make an eOS App Store... But someone's already doing it so it's better I wait and see what they come up with.

Why don't you contact Mario and work together :) I'm sure he'd love some help. Check out the code at code.launchpad.net/appcenter

Mario has done great work with AppCenter, and I think it looks good; I'll try to submit bug fixes and the like. However, after looking at AppCenter I can easily say I would do it 90% different than it is currently. I feel that because it's centered around Ubuntu's Software Center, PackageKit, and APT it is highly limited in what it can and cannot do. I personally am not Ok with that. I've spoken to Fabian a bit about my idea's.

If I were to build one or work on one it would be from the ground up. That's why I haven't started or planned to work on one. I do not want to undermine what Mario is doing and make it seem like his work is in vain.

AFAIK, we're not tied into USC at all. It's built on libappstore which is a collaboration with the Light Software Center (Lubuntu) guys. So, I think if you wanted to mess with backend stuff, you'd want to hack on libappstore.

What if you use installed checked buttons in green and those for download in blue?

Really great mock as always, but the margins are too tight. For the second concept I propose you something like this: [link]
