What is Ubuntu Touch
Ubuntu Touch is the touch-friendly mobile version of Ubuntu. This OS is developed and maintained by UBports: An international community of passionate volunteers. This means Ubuntu Touch is 100% community driven and independent.
Ubuntu Touch - A Different Approach
Ubuntu Touch offers a completely different approach to using your smartphone or tablet than using other mainstream operating systems. The OS is built on Ubuntu, which provides us with a secure and stable base system used by millions of people across personal computers, servers, IoT devices and even the international space station.
The intuitive user interface allows you to access all of your phone's features by swiping from the edges of the screen to access your apps, tools and settings all with one hand and no on-screen buttons. It looks great and feels smooth.
Built by the Community for the Community!
UBports is financed by many generous donations via PayPal, Patreon, LibrePay and Bitcoin, as well as these awesome sponsors. This allows us to keep the lights on and hire developers for some of the work, but we would not be anywhere without our community contributors. Tasks like localization, quality assurance and even development are handled to a surprising extent by volunteers.
