@bhdouglass I've seen that when you turn the phone, the four icons separate,
I think it would be better to put them closer to the center, even if it is empty on the sides,
I am an Ubuntu user since 2008, now the desktop that I use is Mate, I love it and it is my favorite, I have Ubuntu phone since February 2015, the constant unstable updates and some details of the system made it change to Android, I'm delighted that the system go ahead and improve on some things, add Android App to Ubuntu touch was a great idea. It will change things for the better.
Hi guys, I think Ubuntu is a good name, Ubuntu phone was created by the Mark Shuttleworth team, I am proud that they made an alternative to Android and iphone,
they made a very strong bet on making this operating system, that now we follow the UBport community, I think the name is its origin, where the system comes from, to change the name will not have more impact on the world,
now I have Ubuntu on my mobile and on my computer.
I use Ubuntu Mate, but there is also a family behind Ubuntu, ...Gnome, Unity, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu...
If you talk about Linux, the first word that comes to mind is Ubuntu, although there are many Linux distros and very important, Debian, Red Hat, Fedora Linux Mint......
I think it's better to continue with the name of the Ubuntu family.
I was hoping that someone else would comment about my idea, even if it wasn't in my favor as Dobey has done.
Thank you Dobey, you have spoken exposing your thoughts and opinion in a polite way. There are forums where you are afraid to comment your thoughts or ideas because of the lack of ethics.
I have exposed this idea because of the easy use that some people can make of it, by using the phone with one hand.Even though, you can do it with both of them.
Although I am an organized person, I will not always see that order.
In my opinion, it would be great if the actions and menus were the same as the Unity desktop, because you don't have to think where the control system is in every application.
My daughters are all the time with their phones, the oldest one is constantly talking with her friends via Whatsapp and the youngest one, I think that has played the 60% of the games in the Playstore and I really think they do not have any problem in their fingers , maybe they have them even better than Schwarzenneger.
In conclusion, I propose my design to be added to the Ubuntu touch ones, so that the developers can put the control buttons on the left side as Unity does, if they want.
Thank you for your time...
Hi guys, we keep talking about this proposal, but the problem I see buttons and action menus is in several apps and not a single one, but although I have focused on talking about mobile, this problem is more serious in Tablets that use screens of 10" and Unity 8 that I guess will be larger screens, 22" or more, I really do not see myself crossing my fingers from left to right in the same app on a large screen, it would be better to have it grouped on the left side, as Ubuntu has desktop.
I'd like to get feedback from people who use tablets and say their experience with apps on action buttons and action menus,
now I will put two images one is the one I use, another is how I see the apps in general lines and the movements you tend to make with the mouse or finger, if the screen is tactile,
Which image would you keep for your mobile phone, computer or tablet with UT?
The original idea was to unite everything to one form, that all the apps have the control buttons scattered up, down, left and right without a rule, really looks like the jungle, we are talking about putting order in the Chaos, make a homogeneous operating system, that anyone who does not know Ut see the system clean and nice design, easy to see, easy to use, all submenus equally, but each app with the functions each application needs to work,
in the interaction of each app the developers have to put the buttons as each app needs, a document is not a game, is not the relog, is not a player, is not a browser, is not Telegram, etc ... the interaction uses the whole screen and you will use both hands, although it would be a detail of the developer when you press on the buttons at the top of the app were on the left side.
I offer an alternative to this chaos, but what I say is worthless if the community does not see it well.
Android has the idea of using only one hand with the three lower buttons, and to act easily and get out of the apps, even if it's the basics. My idea is good to use a single hand and a single finger, this does not mean that a right-handed can not use the phone, you should not make a mistake in limitations of use, you can use it too, but use both hands as you are doing so far, even for those who read from right to left can do the same, it is not a drastic change of the system, is to join them to a place of use.
if you like the idea of placing the buttons to the right as Windows, you will use it easily with the right hand, but you will have problems with the left bar of Unity, you no longer arrive with the right hand, for options is better the left hand,
I think it's a good proposal for Ut, but the community has the last word.
But why are they split this way in the first place? And why do I need them to be there at all?
That's clear, no one can use a phone with one hand, so I propose that the action buttons are on the left side, if someone wants to use only one hand, it is not mandatory to use the left hand you can use the right hand if you want, there is not a meter distance to change in excess if you use both hands,
the submenus that I have put on the left side, could also be placed in the center of the screen, so that using the right or left hand would not affect you, some app put it to the right and others to the left, I think it does not look good ,
put the icon on the right side is by symmetry in the top bar, if you think it does not look good, it is removed from that position, I particularly like to see it.
