Stuff I did

Not much:

  • Most notably, I was able to merge the first addition to LINMOBapps that reached me via E-Mail. If there is any app you tried on your PinePhone which somewhat worked and is not on the list yet, please mail in and help me get this list up to the 200 apps mark!
  • I played around with SailfishOS: I upgraded my PinePhone to 3.4.0.24, installed Sailfish X on a SONY Xperia X to have a point of comparison and will finish my Sailfish video right after publishing this.
  • I installed UBports on a new device using the excellent UBports installer. I might mention it as a point of comparisonm excited to see those projects progress in the mobile space and hope you enjoyed todays post. As a end note check out LinMob he runs a amazing feed in case you want to stay in the loop on the Pinephone and mobile Linux in general. I also made extensive use of his mobile Linux App list which you can find here to make this blog post in in a future video on UBports’ progress on the PinePhone (which is not going to happen before November).
  • I updated the MaemoLeste install on my Motorola Droid 4, and while they still lack apps for communication (it is going to happen though), screen rotation and a calendar app have been added, and the OS is running a lot smoother overall.
