Ubuntu and Canonical continue working and betting on the Ubuntu Touch project. The last thing we have known is the portability of the React Native Web framework to Ubuntu Phone which means that many of the apps written for iOS and Android can be transferred to Ubuntu Phone without any problem.
React Native Web is a framework that is based on ReactJS, a web technology that is being widely adopted by developers and that can now be easier to use on Ubuntu Phone.
React Native Web and Cordova will make porting iOS and Android apps to Ubuntu Touch easier
React Native Web is not the first framework Canonical has managed to port to Ubuntu Phone. Actually developers count on Cordova, a framework widely used in the Android world. And while these adaptations does not make an app that is written for iOS automatically work on Ubuntu PhoneIt does help the developer to launch the same app for Ubuntu Phone and not spend so many hours to create the same app on different platforms.
The truth is that what Canonical and Ubuntu are doing is nothing new, it is something that Microsoft is already doing, but without much success, but curiously in Ubuntu Touch, the pace of apps is different. Yes, as many of you said in an article in which we told you 5 apps for Ubuntu Phone, many are webappsIt is true, but they are just as functional as normal apps and even lighter than the others, even if we use data from our mobile for this. Thus we can say that each time the ecosystem of Ubuntu Touch is more like Android or iOS and less like Windows Phone, something very interesting if we take into account the famous Ubuntu Convergence Do not you think?
