Snappy doesn't come with a desktop environment readily available that
you can put on top of Ubuntu Core right now. Over time this is likely
going to change, but for now we focused on headless experience and
made the webdm framework as a starting point available.

I have seen exciting efforts of partners and community to make such
"more complete home automation solutions" available for snappy Ubuntu
Core, but they are not yet in store. If you need something to
preinstalled, use webdm to get a basic app store experience that can
be accessed through webbrowser.
