Thank you for the reference to waydroid! Because of that I reordered a new unlocked phone to run ubuntu touch on and hopefully waydroid will work for me. I did not know waydroid existed.

RE: Android Apps Is A NonStarter
The bottom line is Ubuntu Touch is locked out of the smart home/smart device market if it can't run apple or android apps. My interest in Ubuntu Touch was to run a more secure os on my phone without it harvesting all my personal data and firing ads at me, while still being able to communicate with my security cameras, solar panels, and home thermostat. Cell phones are becoming the only means of communication with smart devices such as these.
Android Apps Is A NonStarter
I so wanted to ditch android and switch phone to ubuntu touch. But inability to run android apps makes it a nonstarter. I need them to run securuty cams, solar panels, and thermostat. I'm not unique. More and more smart devices require android apps to run and I don't see how Ubuntu Touch will ever become more than a curiosity without being able to run them.
I understand Anbox has been abandoned/inactivated and of little help with android apps. Is this correct? And do you have plans in the future to resolve the android app issue?
