Photo Scope now allows Ubuntu Phone users to view their Dropbox photos

Photo Scope on Ubuntu PhoneCanonical has announced that they have updated photoscope to allow Ubuntu Phone users to view the photos they have uploaded to their Dropbox accounts. And there are many hosting clouds, but when we have to talk about a few, Dropbox is usually among the chosen ones, which is why Canonical has given it a certain preference. The point is that this sharing service does not have many fans among users in the Ubuntu community, who would prefer to see similar support for other open source services such as ownCloud.

The point is that the phones they use Ubuntu Phone They are not used much today and the main reason is that the mobile version of Ubuntu faces other mobile operating systems that have been on the market much longer, such as iOS, which appeared in 2007, or Android, which is used in about 80% of mobile devices worldwide basically because Google allows it to be installed on practically any mobile.

After Photo Scope, the next major update is coming in June

Right now, Canonical is trying to offer Ubuntu Phone users some exciting new features, such as the ability to view photos captured with other devices and uploaded to dropbox from Photo Scope on your Ubuntu Phone devices. But in addition to these types of news, they are also working on much more important ones, the first of them an OTA-11 that is expected in early June after it was announced that its launch would be delayed a week.

One of the most anticipated novelties that will arrive with the OTA-11 is ethercast, which is also known as Miracast or Wi-Fi Display and which should allow Ubuntu phone and tablet users to take advantage of Canonical's famous convergence of the operating system. On the other hand, they will soon begin to develop OTA-12 as well, so it seems that the Ubuntu developer team is going slowly, but with good lyrics.
