Part 21 of KDE applications explored with Discover

Kaidan

Kaidan

Kaidan is a useful, simple and easy software tool that aims to be a modern and universal chat application for all devices. To do this, it uses the open communication protocol XMPP (Jabber), which is why it does not depend on a specific instant messaging service provider. However, it still does not have all the basic or traditional functions of other well-known and used ones, and it lacks stability, since it is in full development.

Cairo

Cairo

Kairo It is a great utility focused on supporting the user in carrying out sports training exercises (muscle training, stretching, among others) through the use of timers. And to achieve that goal, this app, when run during the execution of a given exercise, displays a progress bar that includes the remaining duration. And when the duration is more than 10 seconds, the progress bar is blue and turns red after 10 seconds. However, it is also possible to program exercises without a specific duration.

KAlgebra

KAlgebra

KAlgebra is a software utility that can easily be used to replace the normal use of the operating system's graphing calculator. However, it has a high educational potential, thanks to the fact that it includes features such as: the use of numerical, logical, symbolic and analysis functions that allow you to calculate mathematical expressions in the console and graphically draw their result in two or three dimensions. Another important point is that it is based on the “mathematical markup language” (MathML).
