Distributing applications on Linux is a pain: different distributions in multiple versions, each with their own versions of libraries and packaging formats. Flatpak is here to change all that. It allows the same app to be installed on different Linux distributions, including different versions. And it has been designed from the ground up with security in mind, so that apps are isolated from each other and from the host system.

Said about Flatpak as an alternative
Also works well on all Linux distributions, but easier to manage apps like GNOME Software or the Flatpak command line interface.

It can be installed simply on any GNU/Linux systems. Not just executable, it is installable.

While snapcraft and flatpak are both universal package managers, flatpak (in my experience) supports distributions other than ubuntu much better than snapcraft.
