@thatoo I think a syncronization app (like this one on android) is needed in UT in order to communicate with an AsteroidOS.
so probably the problem is not only that they don't have software for ubuntu touch but that we don't have software for them :P
:) The Tor browser is a feature I'd very much like to see too, @fishfingers44 - I've mentioned it numerous times here.
I know that the developers are busy building a new browser app at the moment, in preparation for the release of OTA-4. My hope is that Tor might be a possible feature.
@mawil1013 I use a Nexus5 everyday and that works very well on all fronts for me (battery life is a little lacking) but libertine containers do not work on it. Hence my answer above. UBports Ubuntu Touch is still under development and we are waiting for OTA 4 ( 16.04) which will be here shortly. This will give us a more stable platform and iron out some of the existing bugs.
There will also be more devices in the future. The Libram colaberation is on the way and I think the OnePlusThree is coming too. Also please remember all work here is done by volenters and it all takes time. So if you don't have a phone yet you are probably best with the newer models on the list and then upgrading to OTA 4 (16.04) which should be a few weeks away.

This is a community project, not a company, please keep this in mind.
This is fair to say, and I appreciate the clarifications that you have made. Expectations may need adjusting. After all, we have to struggle with regular human things as well. I, however, don't think that a community project is lesser in comparison to a company in any way; it's just different. And if we can harness that difference effectively, then the results will also be effective.

This is the kind of visual "Reality" that I, personally, would like to see in an online tool. Does anyone know how that might be achieved?
This is what I'm working on today
This is what I've completed today
This tasks depends on [usernames]'s other task
Here is what I failed today, and what I learned
In terms of this ^ , I would like to know if such a tool exists for my own work and those working with me.
In the case of community projects and UBports, I think it would be valuable as a way to flag things for help rather than for pressuring people to work. Maybe it could be more "relaxed" and used when action happens rather than when it doesn't:
I'm interested in working on this ________ . Feel free to talk to me if you are too. --> Here's the chat room.
This item needs love ____________.
I got this working today__________. Feel free to review it. / Doesn't need work right now.
But, having a big "wall" /kanban of things that people can post and do/discuss would be a nice big overview CEO thing. Then people can break into teams as be as serious or relaxed as they want.
Could the "unconference" model work for this? (e.g. http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/)
Could we design an Un-Company in addition to the Community?
@3arn0wl "To improve privacy, I'd like the option of using the Tor network."
Running Tor on Ubuntu Touch devices would be a great feature for sure! On all of my desktop computers I'm using Tor as my standard browser since three or four years now. Nowadays and in times of unlimited tracking run by companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft etc. there is not any reason anymore to not use Tor as a daily driver.
Hi Ubports A-Team, would it be possible to have a snap installer also for 32 bit architecture? Many of us have still this "old" machines. Xenial will be supported for 32 bit as we know until 2021. Thanks for feedback. @milkor73
