Hello Linux Geeksters. A Spotify Client, called CuteSpotify has been developed for Ubuntu Touch, Canonical’s mobile version of Ubuntu. Having an intuitive GUI written in QT, the app enables the users to search and play music from the Spotify database, manage playlists and others. The app is still under development so it has many issues, but if you want to try it, you can find installation instructions of the project’s Git page.
Also, a demo video for CuteSpotify running on LG Nexus 4 powered by Ubuntu Touch is available above:
Besides the Ubuntu Touch Core Apps and the Ubuntu Desktop apps, Ubuntu Touch has many apps developed specially for it, including:
- Reminders, an open source Evernote client developed by Canonical
- A Facebook app
- CalculusTouch, a smart calculator app
- Web Browser App, a web browser developed by Canonical
- Mappero, a GPS app ported from Maemo
- Karma Machine, Saucy Bacon and Snake, the winning apps of Ubuntu Apps Showdown 2013
For those who don’t know yet, the first stable version of Ubuntu Touch (based on Ubuntu 13.10) has been released in October 2013. The developers have already started work for the next Ubuntu Touch version, which is now based on Ubuntu 14.04, a system that should bring a full mobile-desktop convergence, and make Mark Shuttleworth very happy. Despite the fact that it is not mature enough to compete with Android, Ubuntu Touch has good chances of becoming a popular mobile OS, at least among the Linux enthuriasts.
