Pi-Apps is very easy to use.

- Go back to the main list of categories.

On the right is the app details window:
- View the shell-scripts responsible for installing or uninstalling the selected app.
- Modify the app's description, icons, or scripts. (This button is hidden unless you enable it in Settings)

If you install/uninstall an app, you will see the progress window, keep installing/uninstalling apps to add them to the queue:
Pi-Apps Settings can be configured by launching Menu -> Preferences -> Pi-Apps Settings.
In addition to changeable settings, this window also gives access to these tools:
- Does that one app seem to be in the wrong category? With this button, you can change it.
- Create a new app with a wizard-style set of dialogs. We recommend reading the tutorial.
- View the past weeks-worth of installation logs. This is useful if you ever encounter an app that won't install and want to see the terminal output after you closed the terminal.
- This allows you to easily import a 3rd-party app from elsewhere. It helps Pi-Apps developers test upcoming apps for reliability on a variety of systems.
