Ubuntu Touch is the touch-friendly mobile version of the well-loved Ubuntu operating system. Originally designed and developed by Canonical, it now lives on in the UBports community.  
Ubuntu Touch offers a completely refreshing approach to the mobile experience. Thanks to the intuitive interface, members of the Ubuntu Touch community report a very 'natural' experience. With a gentle swipe from the edge of the screen, you have access to all of the device's apps, tools and settings. There are no accidental button pushes or hard-to-reach dungeons of your phone. Everything is just a swipe away. This classy and unique operating system will help you stand out in a crowd with the latest fashion in mobile technology.
Ubuntu Touch focuses on hardware minimalism and efficiency. We are working hard to make your Ubuntu Touch device compatible with pretty much any screen you can find. Imagine linking your mobile device to a monitor, mouse and keyboard and having it instantly transform into a desktop experience. Think of the increased productivity, decreased wastage and downright convenience. With Ubuntu Touch you only need one device.  

So you heard the news about Big Brother (and his brothers) spying on you and stealing your personal data? Don't worry. With Ubuntu Touch, Big Brother can drink a cold cup of chill because he'll have nothing to see with the world's safest system that respects your privacy. Ubuntu Touch keeps you secure because everything unsafe is blocked by default; the only way that the peepers and creepers can get in is if you invite them. We've got your back.

UBports is a world wide community of actual living people who place high value - not just on a 'flashy user experience' - but also on bigger picture items like freedom and creativity. Although UBports began with a simple copy and paste of the programming code from the promising Ubuntu Touch platform, this was merely a starting point for something that would soon become much greater.

The UBports project was founded by Marius Gripsgard in 2015 and in its infancy was a place where developers could share ideas and educate each other in hopes of bringing the Ubuntu Touch platform to more and more devices.  

After Canonical suddenly announced their plans to terminate support of Ubuntu Touch in the beginning of 2017, the programming source code for the project was, thanks to the hard work of many volunteers, picked up and moved into the free software community where the project could not only be maintained but also expanded.  

Starting first as a handful of developers meeting on Telegram (a free software app running successfully on many devices including Ubuntu Touch) within just a couple of months this tiny UBports group had grown into a 'super group' community with hundreds and hundreds of people from many countries and walks of life. The overall resonance has been fantastic, dialogues exciting, and community membership is growing at a break neck speed.

It is our goal at UBports to keep the framework of the the original Ubuntu Touch alive on all originally-supported devices while... Read on
