Flatpak helps run applications which are distro-agnostic and save the users from dependency hell. It addresses the ineffective distribution of applications in the linux ecosystem. It takes considerable time for users to try and use the latest features of the application as they are left at the mercy of package managers. Hence, if any application is not packaged by a certain distribution, those users have no choice unless to build from source or switch to other distribution. Flatpak brings developers and users closer.

Flatpak also makes applications run in a secure without compromising user's data and privacy. Applications will only have access to host resources only if user explicitly grants permissions. Flatpak ensures the application environment is consistent on all platforms.
