LibreOffice can now be run on Ubuntu Phone

Convergence is something that draws a lot of attention to users, but there are really few apps or applications that exist on both devices. However, we already know two new applications that are very common in Ubuntu Desktop and that can be used in Ubuntu Phone. These apps about LibreOffice and Gimp. We have seen the last one run at the MWC in Barcelona where the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition had a version of Gimp that showed how it works.

And thanks to a user we have seen how LibreOffice currently works on Ubuntu Phone. The user is called Marcos Costales and he has presented a video showing how LibreOffice works on Ubuntu Phone with Nexus 4. This new application will undoubtedly make many users use the Canonical tablet since the office suite is one of the main needs of users when working in desktop mode.

Libreoffice is already among the apps that can be used on Ubuntu Phone

We also have Gimp which is a great alternative to adobe photoshop so we can say that the great needs are covered. Even so, the operation of X11 applications in Ubuntu Phone is not very correct and that causes them to use a lot of terminal battery, but in return we have the possibility to create documents, view them in smartphone mode and then edit them or send them in desktop mode without affecting file performance.

I personally believe that with this and with the alternatives that currently exist in web version, Ubuntu convergence is ready to go. Of course, a lot still has to be done but it will not be done well if there is no contribution and feedback from the users, so I think that currently the situation is ready to start and to be one of the best convergences that exists in the world. market. Of course Shuttleworth was right when he said that Ubuntu's Convergence is not the same as Microsoft's What do you think? Do you think LibreOffice works well? What about the Ubuntu Convergence?

    I did not think that these couple of videos would become so popular: $ I recorded them only to share them on my G + 😛 If I know, I would have tried more quality in the video 😛
    As I understand it, Ubuntu will port all the ARM packages to .click (the one used by Ubuntu Touch).
    It is interesting to use the tablet in desktop mode, because with adding the mouse we already have a PC and if we need more screen, connect it to a large monitor.
    Promising 🙂
