Great stuff!

Although it seems I've some troubles since I can't connect the gallery 

$ sudo snap connect uitk-gallery:platform ubuntu-app-platform:platform
$ uitk-gallery
You need to connect the ubuntu-app-platform package with your 
application to reuse shared assets, please run:
snap install ubuntu-app-platform
snap connect uitk-gallery:platform ubuntu-app-platform:platform

I guess it would be nice to have a similar content interface for all the 
desktop-launchers we support so far.
