Ubuntu Phone SDK Experiments

When we announced Ubuntu for phones on the 2nd January we also announced the developer preview of the SDK. The SDK includes QML and the Ubuntu Phone Components that provides a set of controls for building applications. It includes a comprehensive development environment.

If you want to play with the developer preview, go and get it, then follow the tutorial, and be sure to ask questions if you get stuck.

We have already been seeing some interesting experiments going on on the Ubuntu App Development Google+ Community with people writing applications and playing with the SDK developer preview. I just wanted to share some of this work here.

Francisco Gómez García has been working on cProg inside a terminal:

Stuart ‘Aq’ Langridge has been working on a game:

Martin Kaistra has also been working on a Reddit reader for the phone:

Micha? Pr?dotka has also been experimenting with QML for his app:

Daniel Wood has written a simple calculator:

We have also seen some interesting ideas and mock-ups for apps for the phone such as this from we Love Ubuntu:

And lastly, Mark Johnson, who obviously has far too much time on his hands, has ported his “JonoBoard” app to QML, thus unleashing the mighty power of community:

Remember, if you want to play with the developer preview, go and get it, then follow the tutorial, and be sure to ask questions if you get stuck. Enjoy!
