When it was released Ubuntu Touch left a lot of people disappointed that the developer preview was in many ways a non functioning OS. There was no way to add or view content and the majority of apps were simply place holders. It did however allow developers to test the apps they had been working on, on real world devices, which along with having something tangible to show possible future partners was the reason for the release. Now we are a few weeks down the line, how are things progressing?
To begin with the are now nightly builds using Raring (13.04) keeping everything on a par with the current desktop development branch. These builds are available to download from here. Within the nightly builds you will see the ongoing work on the core bundled apps with Calculator, Callander and Clock now all in a working state.
The camera app has seen work to implement video recording, gallery updates are focused on speed improvements and HUD implementation. Telephony and MMS has an progress along with media playback via gstreamer.
Developer loaded apps will now appear on the apps lens and be fully accessible.
Overall things are progressing, but not to the extent where we have anything usable to flash. Ubuntu Touch is currently working on 30 devices with many more at a partial stage. You can check if your device is currently on the list at the Ubuntu wiki page.
