Features of the Ubuntu Touch Operating System
The Ubuntu Touch OS is developed and maintained by the UBports Community, a group of volunteers and passionate people from all around the world. We believe that everyone should be free to use, study, share and improve all of our software without restrictions. Every line of source-code we create is distributed under free and open source software licenses endorsed by the Free Software Foundation or the Open Source Initiative.
Freedom means not being restricted. That is why Ubuntu Touch comes with a fully-featured Ubuntu Terminal pre-installed. But that does not mean that you have to have be an elite hacker to use Ubuntu Touch. The user interface is designed with usability in mind and its intuitive controls make everyone feel at home.
With Ubuntu Touch we offer a truly unique mobile experience - a viable alternative to Android and iOS. We provide the only free and open-source GNU/Linux-based mobile operating system that you can install and use today. On this page you will learn what Ubuntu Touch can do, and if it's the right choice for your personal needs.
Free as in freedom
All our software is provided free-of-charge and ad-free and is released under free-software-licenses that respect your freedom to use, study, modify and share the software. Even if you don't know how to read and write code this system ensures that all of our software is written in your best interest.
We are of course not the only project that shares their source code. There are millions of open source developers around the world! By improving each others software and building on what's already been accomplished, together we can achieve greatness!
A large collection of apps
Ubuntu Touch comes pre-installed with a set of solid core apps that cover your daily needs, and many more can easily be downloaded for free. All applications follow the same design guidelines and provide a familiar look-and-feel.
