Here I start a list to report which apps should be removed from the OpenStore since they are not working.
- Discord (by Tesla) does not work
My workaround for the problem:
After recording something with the Recorder, click the Share symbol in the top right corner, select File Manager and select the Download folder.
Then connect phone via USB and you will find the recording in your Downloads folder.
I just installed UB ports on my Nexus 5 and I am very impressed.
However, I could not find anywhere infos or documentation about actually how to handle the UI of this OS.
When I login to my phone, I'd like to see some kind of Desktop, but I always see the Apps screen.
I figured out that long swipe from right shows all the open apps and I can close them with swiping up, but the scopes app always stays open.
Any links and information/documentation on this would be amazing.
Second question, I installed via the super userfriendly ubports installer from my ubuntu desktop, I thought I can dualboot into my android, but how/where can I select to start into android?
Camera seems to work good
Testing Bluetooth in my car soon....
We all are hoping that there will come a trick to install firefox (https://puri.sm/posts/desktop-firefox-in-your-pocket-with-the-librem-5/) or get an up-to-date browser very soon.
Its tricky to use UBports in a daily world where everyone wants you to install their app (iOS or Android),
if your workaround for this is to use the browser in desktop mode and then it tells you "your browser is not supported anymore" its quite annoying.... and really deal braking.
How hard is it to adjust the css ? I can ask my wife, she is pretty good at it, but where would I find the code to do so. I am still confused on how to create and test webapps for Ubports.
BTW, just figured out that the "I need to re-login and it tells me the I am already logged in in another tab" issue comes from wire, since I have the same message in Brave browser on Linux.
About a bounty program, I am in with 50.-- Euro (should we make a bounty program in the OpenStore
Having the same issues here on a Nexus5 with Ubports OTA-12
I also have an issue when I want to open the app again:
I need to re-login and it tells me the I am already logged in in another tab.
In short: the app is currently not usable and logging in via web-browser is not supported...
Wrote a review in Openstore hopefully the dev finds time to figure out a workaround.
You should vote and write a review too!
Currently (in 10/2020) there is only Telegram aka Teleports usable on Ubports.
Signal aka Axolotl Beta is only "kind of" usable in daily life, but missing push notifications.
Element (Riot.im) aka FluffyChat I could not make to work, its somehow very nerdy, even for a nerd...
@rinigus :Thanks for the summary of steps.
Since I will never go back to android I think I must spend time for solving this problem.
@herr-b : this sounds like a great solution.
@rinigus: I would love to use it for offline navigation for mountain biking in the mountains.
Have a lot of GPX tracks from friends and I am thinking of creating some kind of Supertrail maps where all the nice biketrails are visible in offline mode.
Not sure if here is the right place to ask, but would it be possible to overlay all stored gpx files over a map with height lines (opentopomap.org) or should I render them somehow into a hi-res map and then load this custom map? Any hints are very welcome.
Update over cellular worked great so far, thank you!
OTA-11 showed me on top of the screen "4G" or "E", OTA-12 only shows "L"
The browser supports now websites like coinbase.com, which is a massive improvement!
Hotspot works as well...
The next big thing is to think about how much waste we create and how we destroy the earth and its ecosystem. Maybe create an app to track how much waste each person creates daily (including digital waste) and how many people will die because of this.
When writing a post like this one, how much energy is consumed until it shows on your screen... how many poor kids died for building the parts of your phone...
Sorry, I will stop it here, it does not fit into the UBports forum.
Lets talk about modern web-browser for UBports or about this cool own-mailbox.....
