Do you think Ubuntu Touch is a good alternative to Android or iOS?
Go to www.alternativeto.net and suggest UT as an alternative to both! What you can do:
1. Go to our page and click the 'like' button
2. Give it a review!
3. Go to the Android page and suggest UBports Ubuntu Touch (NOT the Canonical one!) as an alternative to Android.
4. Go to the iOS page and suggest UBports as alternativeto iOS
Decided to try out Ubuntu Touch on my old Nexus 4. Took a while to get it to install (for various reasons, some of which being my fault, won't go into that right now), but once I finally did... Even after a couple minutes of testing it out, I'm already impressed. Major props to @Ubports
CONVERGENCE IS ALIVE!
Thanks to the resurrection of Unity, progress is now starting to explode around Unity8 and Ubuntu Touch.
To bring you up to speed, here is the latest article from the UBports Writers team. Enjoy!
Special thanks to @alan_griffiths for all his great source material and hard work on Mir.

The first day of using my Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch went well (as I expected it to). I needed to slip out of a few habits, and I found a couple of small things with a couple of apps.
Overall, though, it didn't take too much effort to adapt to Ubuntu Touch. Then again, it's not my first time around the block with it
Learned about someting called Fairphone the other day. A phone company trying to source as much of the componants from ethical sources as possible. Also: rad as hell transparent plastic cases
