Improving the user experience for Linux customers has been a big priority for us in 2020. Earlier this year we released a fully featured CLI app. Today, following the redesigned Android and iOS/iPadOS apps, we are releasing the next iteration of our Linux app with a graphical interface.

A quick overview of the app:

We have tested the app on current Debian and Red Hat based distributions including CentOS, Debian 64, Fedora and Ubuntu. Your mileage may vary - let us know if you encounter any issues.

The app is open source - you can review its code and contribute on GitHub.
