@rinigus Thank you. OpenCage appears, on first use, to work perfectly.
BA11 2JY, BS7 8RW, PL2 1SQ all failed in Photon but worked with OpenCage.
Although I can't provide any sort of solution I have the same two issues on my recently acquired Nexus 7 deb. In addition rotation doesn't work (although I know this is an issue on Android too); also it reboots itself whenever I turn it off. It's not immediate but takes up to about 20 minutes.
That said, it's a great little tablet with UT on it.
Ah that's a shame. The today scope in particular is the single most useful thing I've seen on any phone. I understand the reasoning though.
I totally agree. I will miss the Today scope, although it has been getting less useful than it was for a while now.
You certainly aren't the oldest on the forum. A mere child in fact.
Ubuntu Touch works with a very few devices at the moment. You can see the list here Supported devces
A few others work to some degree here
In principle any device can be supported but requires someone to do the porting of the device. That's time consuming process and there are more important tasks at the moment than porting to many devices. New devices need to be able to use Halium, to run Ubuntu 16.04, so that's the place to start.
