Ubuntu Touch

The world does not lack for mobile operating systems based on Linux kernel, Android OS Firefox through Open webOS, Tizen and Sailfish. The entry of Ubuntu touch into the canonical market nevertheless has a special flavor but the most popular name. Canonical has significantly expanded the scope of Ubuntu in 2012, displaying its unified interface of the big screen television in the small Smartphone screen through those computers and tablets. If you know Ubuntu, you will therefore not be disoriented by Ubuntu Touch: the great fundamental Unity interface and the principles Canonical are present. Screen saver - or "welcome screen" under Canonical - displays date, time, and a graphical representation of your notifications such as messages tweets received etc and your call activity duration. You can unlocks the phone by dragging the screen either to the left, which allows you to go to the home screen, or to the right, which will display the Launcher and launch an application directly.

 The use of gestures in Ubuntu Touch On the Home screen are the following:

 a shift from the left side displays the Launcher;
 sliding along from the left edge to return to the home screen;
 a shift from the right edge to return to the previous application;
 a shift from the top to open the center of notifications if you slide over the icon messages or sound settings / Wi-Fi / battery / date and time if you slide over suitable icons;
 a shift from the lower edge of the interface displays the current app;
 sliding along from the lower edge shows the commands and settings of the app in progress.

 This may sound complicated, but it quickly took the hand: horizontal gestures to navigate between apps, the vertical movements related parameters. Through these actions, we do not support multitasking Touch on Ubuntu (though you may be tempted to do it on Android and especially iOS) - it is discreet but effective. The home screen is unique to Ubuntu Touch. It is composed of five "pages", each with a specific function:

 Central page is the real home screen, which displays your favorite contacts and apps and your media recently used;
 right of this page Central, your apps (those that turn, favorites, others, and the ones you might want to install);
 left, your contacts (favorites, that you have contacted recently, and others); finally ends, videos and music with a presentation reminiscent of Dash.

 If the three central screens are rather well designed and efficient, it remains doubtful on both monitors multimedia must scan four times to move the video to the music. It is difficult to prejudge the overall performance of Ubuntu Touch and its applications: almost nothing works for now. Most applications are only wallpapers (and do not expect to install others), you cannot listen to music or play videos - in short, we can only play with preloaded content and not much more. Canonical is going to have to work extra to achieve a fully operational by October. But this first overview shows Ubuntu Touch whether it will be able to get beyond the circle of fans of Ubuntu.
