UBports community delivers 'second-largest release of Ubuntu Touch ever'


Re: Why not fork Android + make it a shell

You're right about the lack of apps.

I have UBports installed on a Huawei Nexus 6p phone, and it works really well. I can make and receive calls and texts, take photos, browse the web and whatnot, but there are a couple of apps I use every day that are not available, and won't ever be.

That said, I could probably work out workarounds for the apps I'm missing, and there is a browser plugin (at least I think that is what it is) that will let me pin web pages on the home screen sort of like an app, which is something.

I am still awaiting this particular update though.
