Info request



  • Hi,
    I would like to have some information, in particular

    1. How are apps permissions handled against android?
    2. Signal is not in the official store, but there is a project for Ubuntu Phone, is it possible to use that project now? https://github.com/janimo/textsecure-qml
    3. Has anyone tested antox on Nexus 5?
    4. Last question: Will the Ubports 15.04 version be compatible with the 16.04 currently in alpha phase?
      Thanx in advance


  • Sorry, anbox on Nexus 5.



  • Concerning 2, Textsecure is not available in the Openstore but you can install it from the Ubuntu Store.

    There is no development going on currently on this app. A call for a new developer has been launched on this forum but unfortunately there has not been any response yet. I would love to see its continued development so I really hope someone will take it on.

    I used the version available in the Ubuntu Store on my Nexus 4. It worked fine and I could message friends who have Signal installed on Android and iphones. However, it does not want to work on my Nexus 5. If you are using a Nexus 5, it would be interesting to know if it works for you.
