Are you sad that you missed Jan Sprinz' talk on UBports at Ubucon Europe 2018?
The fantastic people from NerdZoom (a German Tech Blog, audiocast, and youtube channel specializing in GNU/Linux) were present and recorded a nice video of the talk especially for you.

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!

RE: Ubuntu on Huawei devices?
I refer once again to what has already been stated by Florian
[Forwarded from Florian Leeber]
I am fully against any cooperation with Huawei sorry to say. As I said yesterday in the supergroup: No we wont ask for this. Huawei is in a very political discussion and the foundation needs to stay neutral. We will not endorse, recommend any or cooperate with companies that are under the impression of political influence.
I think that really puts an end to this thread so am going to lock it. There is always Off Topic if needed.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com 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

Download the rootfs image from https://ci.ubports.com/job/rootfs/job/rootfs-pinephone/
1 Extract and write the image to an SD card
2 Plug SD card into phone
3 Boot phone
That should do it.
Copied from @Universalsuperbox post in the other thread, how to get OS on to PinePhone
RE: Pinephone tutorial
I think now this thread is getting more involved and we already have a PinePhone thread for all things PinePhone https://forums.ubports.com/topic/2403/pinephone/316 So can I very politely ask that all further conversations not on the specific Tutorial theme carry on over there. It just stops any confusion and helps others at the same time. Thank You
RE: Ubuntu Touch is working poorly for me on my FP2
@ollehell Firstly thank you for changing the title of your post and secondly I hope we can help improve your experience so far with Ubuntu Touch. I'm sure someone in the community will be able to help with any individual issues.
Please remember Ubuntu Touch is not nor does it want to be Android or IOS. The OS is developing and moving forward all the time. We know there are few issues that need work and they are and will be worked out.
We are a helpful and friendly bunch and very proud of UBports and Ubuntu Touch, so join in and if you do have the time and can help out in anyway it will be very much appreciated.

RE: Scopes on the 16.04........
I think for now that @dobey has explained the current situation fully and whether we personally think that is right or not the future and success of the project as a whole has to come first. Which will benefit everyone in the end.
I for one, and have said so before , really enjoyed the today scope and appreciated the time and effort @rubencarneiro put in to keeping these scopes going for so long. I don't think however repeatedly bombarding github with requests is going to help or change the situation.
From the responses to this thread already it is clear people like the feature and have ideas and spins on the theme of scopes. Why not therefore create a new thread in the Off Topic section of the forum to discuss it further and see what happens and where the ideas run. Maybe @rubencarneiro you would like to start that.
