The 5 apps that we can already find in Ubuntu Phone and that will make us not miss Android

Ubuntu Phone

One of the criticisms that everyone casts in the face of Ubuntu Phone is the little ecosystem of apps and applications that it has. If we compare it with Android, it is true that Ubuntu Phone has few apps, but the main apps or Ubuntu Phone applications have them and it works just as well as Android.

This is how we want to present you the apps that due to ignorance we think do not work on Ubuntu Phone but that is not true. What's more, some of them can also be found for UnityThat is, for our Ubuntu Desktop, something interesting if we really work a lot with Ubuntu.

Evernote, the great notes app

Evernote has no official client for Gnu / Linux but if it has an official scope that will make Ubuntu can have its small version of Evernote. This is interesting because there are many users who use Evernote on a daily basis and now they can have it on Ubuntu Phone.

WhatsApp is also in Ubuntu

The first app or application that everyone requests is WhatsApp, if an application that is becoming something main and necessary for many. Well then, Ubuntu Phone already has it and thanks to WhatsApp Web, but it does. In addition, this webapp can also be used in Unity or in the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet.
WhatsApp on Ubuntu Phone

Facebook Messenger, why not everything is WhatsApp

Despite the fact that Facebook still does not have the official app, users can use a Facebook Messenger client although you can also use pidgin and incorporate more instant messaging services.

Twitter, social networks are also on Ubuntu

The famous weevil social network also has an official client for Ubuntu Phone. In this aspect we have a webapp client, that is to say, an almost official application of the famous social network.


Dropbox, a cloud service for everyone ...

Surprisingly, the famous cloud client does not have an official version for Ubuntu Phone, but if we have an unofficial client that will make us not miss the official client. Although this will be momentary since Dropbox will have a snap package that will allow us to install it on Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu.


As you can see, Ubuntu Phone has the main apps and applications that we use on Android although it does not have as many games as Android, it may also fail in this as it currently happens in the Desktop version, although we hope it is only momentarily Do not you think?

    If it could be installed on any computer like any Android ROM it would be great. At the moment it is still a project. I love UBUntu on my notebook or on my PC. But on a cell phone ... um. Lack.

    A query, whatsapp web requires a permanently connected phone with whatsapp to work. How is that web client supposed to work on Ubuntu phone? Do I also need another phone that has the official app permanently connected?

    My question is the same as that of Camilo Olivares, if tomorrow they upload a WhatsApp video on any device with Ubuntu iPhone, sales explode! I use telegram, my with a limited group of my contacts. Greetings

    Hello, can you do an article about WhatsApp in Ubuntu? I am considering switching to Ubuntu phone, but not having WA is what throws me back the most.
