20 Best KDE Applications

Filed under
KDE
Software

In this article I will overview 20 KDE applications which I believe are best in their niche, one application from each important category, in no particular order.

BasKet (Notes-taking application)

I think each time I’ve talked about BasKet I mentioned it is a ‘killer app’ for Linux. BasKet is a full-blown notes-taking application for KDE, but it takes the concept to a whole new dimension, bringing features which make it a fully-fledged content creation program. It supports inserting text, images, links, frames. It organizes notes in a tree-like hierarchical manner, supports tags, importing notes from other notes-taking applications or text files, back/restore function.

Amarok (Music player)

Amarok 2.x has reached the level of maturity each Amarok user expected from such a player, especially since the change from the older 1.4 releases. It has countless features, including music library, lyrics and info widgets, powerful configurable playlist, scripting support, 5-star rating system, 10-band equalizer, integrated music stores and much, much more.
