Being based on Arch Linux, Apricity OS is built around the GNOME desktop environment, which has been stripped down to its basics in order to consume as little resources as possible, as well as to lower the boot times to a few seconds. It uses ICE, a simple SSB (Site Specific Browser) manager, to put your favorite Web Apps on the desktop, and TLP, an advanced battery management tool for optimizing battery usage on laptop computers.

Among other unique features of Apricity OS, we can mention Pushbullet, a utility that allows users to send links or files between multiple devices, as well as to receive phone calls, short text messages, or other mobile notifications, Syncthing, a tool that lets you transfer large amounts of data across multiple platforms through a fully encrypted system, and PlayOnLinux, a Wine frontend that lets you use Windows apps and games.

Moreover, Apricity OS comes with SBackup, a fully functional system backup utility that supports compressed and uncompressed backups, scheduled backups, manual backups, remote backups, and split backups, Liquid Prompt, a tool that beautifies the Terminal, making it more informative, HiDPI support, Uncomplicated Firewall (UFW), Pamac package manager, LibreOffice, Steam for Linux, and other popular GNOME apps.
