@dtarrant said in Let's be honest, Ubuntu Touch is bad:
In support of Android, many folk cite the availability of a plethora of apps. How many do you really need? Aren't many of them simply "shovelware"?
Of course I can give only examples relevant to me
Some apps that come to my mind
- I pay 10 EUR per month for Spotify Premium and I mostly listen to it while on my way (to work, friends, etc.); haven't found a way to do that on UT natively (Spotify is one of the few apps that works in anbox, though, but with horrible battery life)
- I pay money to use car/bike/scooter sharing apps and none of them offer a way to book a vehicle on their mobile website
- my Office 365 apps at work only work with certain trusted apps installed
These are kind of show stoppers for me.
So personally I can very well understand where ollehell comes from. For me UT is unusable as a daily driver. And probably will be forever, I don't know. Still I like and support the idea that people have a choice. And I met some in person who are happy using UT. So I contribute a little (working on docs, the installer and providing a manual installation alternative), but admittedly with focus on the Fairphone 2 which ultimately is what drives me.
