I didn't touch the README. You downloaded the old 15.04 version. Please build the app for 16.04 using Clickable instead. I don't plan to maintain the app, just wanted to show it is still mostly functional, in case anyone wants to pick it up.
Thanks for testing, I got back my Nexus 5. I should be able to look at it soon.
The aim of this wrapper was to enable simple GPS background tracking, but not pretending to have a full feature app. I'm not going to add functionality on a "hack" even working. It would be better to enable on Utouch the GPS background then we could start thinking on improving apps (like Activity Tracker).
We need visibility there : https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/1067
Version 0.0.7: LG Watch is found and connected via bluetooth and all the available app functions are working 😁 (except the one that I need most: incomig call notifiaction, because during work my Handy is in silent mode).
Before I forget:
During the first time installation of the app in version 0.0.5, the directory "/home/phablet/.local/share/telescope.asteroidos/screenshot", for a working screenshot function, was not created.
However I'm still interested in sms and mms encryption even it has to be only between Ubuntu Touch devices.
That has to be developed.
And my guess is it will take time until it becomes a priority, but if someone with technical skills and will wants to work on it that will be welcome.
Axolotl is a client for Signal, I don't really know if it can send encrypted messages without internet connection (but I doubt it).
Maybe if @nanu-c comes around here he might answer that and maybe add this to his todo list.
You can check Gitlab for existing feature request or make one: https://github.com/nanu-c/axolotl/issues
Hi, just re-visiting this, having the existing UT VPN take care of these features would be ace, save having to depend on extra apps.
from a users point of view, having the mobile data reception indicator or wifi indicator in the top bar turn green when connected via VPN successfully would be a nice way to show a secure connection rather than an extra indicator symbol cluttering up the top bar.
