For mobile operating systems to be successful, they need to have a wide range of apps, a catalog in which any type of application can be found. Canonical and the teams working on Ubuntu know this and that is why enhance both development tools and app events so that your operating system for mobile grows little by little.

Thus, Ubuntu Phone has Ubuntu SDK, a tool that will help any user to easily create an app for Ubuntu Phone. Recently the Ubuntu SDK development team has updated this tool to include the latest version of QT Creator, the default IDE used to create apps for Ubuntu Phone.

- Ubuntu SDK has incorporated the latest version of Qt Creator, version 4.1, has also incorporated some corrections that existed in the code and internally has turned it into an LXD container. The latter does not affect the developer or the end user, but it does make the SDK adopt a new format that facilitates updates and prevents future problems, changing only the new.

Ubuntu SDK offers a complete interface for the novice developer

The Qt Creator 4.1 IDE is characterized by offer many fixes to bugs that existedIn addition, several display modes are incorporated that will make the writing of the code not annoying.

The new version of Ubuntu SDK cannot be obtained through the official Ubuntu repository as it does not have the latest version, however we can obtain it thanks to an external repository, specifically a repository that the Ubuntu SDK team has created for it. So to install it we have to open the terminal and write the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa
sudo apt update && sudo apt install ubuntu-sdk-ide

I personally think the Ubuntu SDK is a great tool to create apps for Ubuntu Phone or for other platforms. However, it is oriented towards the novice user which makes it cumbersome for some developers, so if you hardly know how to program and want to create apps for Ubuntu Phone, the Ubuntu SDK is your tool.
