Attention UBports Community!
As UBports quickly grows, we need to know the clear answer to the question "Who is our audience?" so that we can develop our community and Ubuntu Touch correctly. Thankfully Querida, a member of UBports Marketing, has decided to do her International Business and Languages Bachelor thesis on this very topic for her graduation semester. So with your help we can all benefit from her hard work!
We ask you to kindly take about 5 minutes of your time to fill out this survey.
To thank you for your participation, we'll be sure to publish the detailed results of this survey on the forum so you, too, can know more about your UBports Community.
Thank you for your help, and Querida thank you too!

Linphone App Now In OpenStore
UBports News Channel, [02.10.18 01:03]
Hey there, UBports! We just heard a little secret...
...Someone said that Linphone has just landed in the Open Store.
It's Ubuntu Touch's very first dedicated SIP app which allows VOIP calling - now!
In fact, you can even use it to make regular telephone calls, too!
You can create a free account -right in the app - and start calling other Ubuntu Touch users and anyone else who can use the famous Linphone software and services.
Join the party and keep up the good work!

App Maintainers Needed !!
UBports News Channel, [04.07.18 13:47]
Are you a Dev?
UBports is Looking for App Maintainers
UBports has been looking for App Maintainers for the music-app and weather-app for some time now, but no one has yet stepped up. These two apps are, while not highly discussed, still important core apps and have been in unmaintained status for over a year.
If you are a developer with some skills in QML/Qt and interested in helping out with this specific need, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions. Or, simply fork the code and start sendings us PRs!
RE: Choosing the right phone?
@mawil1013 Great that you want to help. Have a look at this tutorial for how to do a bug report
Don't worry about your lack of technical skills. You'll soon pick them up. I have none either and what I do know I've picked up from others showing and helping me.
One last thing. There's no reason to copy all of the post your replying to in it. In most cases just hitting the reply button on the post or comment you are replying to is fine. Or just copy a little section if it something specific.
Hope this helps and enjoy Ubports.
P.S Also have a look at these Tutorials as well

Article 13 European Parliment. Red Alert!
Attention UBports Community!
All hands to their work stations!! This is not a drill!!
We repeat: This is not a drill!
The European Parliament is about to cause serious damage to UBports and most Free and Open Source Software by forcing user generated content sharing websites to implement mandatory content upload censorship filters.
This measure is also very dangerous, and can cripple the Internet seriously.
Know more about this issue and the battle plan:
Don't wait act today, because the vote on the last Parliament Committee is tomorrow!

RE: What phone is fully functional?
@mawil1013 This is the list of current devices
They are all fully functional bearing in mind the constraints on 15.04 and the odd device specific bug and that some devices are getting on a bit.
Remember 16.04 is not far away which will bring more functionality and stability and the hints of Oneplus three devices. UBports moves onwards and upwards. Check out the list.
