Next week my #Nexus5 should arrive and I'll be switching from #android to #Ubports #UbuntuTouch. I thought I'd take this last opportunity to share the apps I use on android:

Email - #K9
Map & navigation - #OSMand
Face2face - #Jitsi
#Mastodon - #Tusky
Browser - #Brave or #Orfox
Privacy - #Orbot
Text - #Noise
Email - #Tutanota
Podcast - #Antennapod
Video - #Newpipe
#TinyTravelTracker
Repo - #Fdroid
#Keepassdroid

I use the stock phone apps for clock, file access and calendar with no online access

@Trumpy
@Ubports is alive and well. They could tell you more on their project. Look up their work with the #librem5 !

@Ubports @kev
Well, I'm going to jump in with both feet to see if I cannot make a Nexus5 running Ubuntu Touch my daily driver. I will have to modify much of my behavior but I am willing if the reward is to be rid of android and google. Thanks for your help. I will be sharing my progress on Mastodon and maybe we can inspire others to give it a go.

I just bought a used Meizu PRO5 running Flyme(android) and successfully installed #UbuntuTouch
I have shared my steps with @NeoTheThird I hope we will be able to share it without any trouble with the files used to do it!

@Ubports booth at Ubuntu Party Paris:

There were a lot of interresing discussions, more than what I would expect, for the best !
Wow #convergence , it's a phone that power that screen?📱🖥🖱
Is it a laptop, wait, a tablet? ⌨🖱
Can i install it? 📲
Who is behind it? 💞
(and more... Some technical, some less, such as 'so it's not unity on gnome, right?')

We even installed some phone (the ubports installer is really simple and it just works!) 🤗👌

VPN on UT? Yes! You've probably heard of VPNs. You probably know you need one. But did you know you can configure one on UT right now?

In the continuation of our series of how to get more out of your Ubuntu Touch life, check out our most recent tutorial:
