I decided to reduce the number of active scopes in my Ubuntu Phone to just three:
- the Application Launcher,
- the Today,
That’s enough because the scopes for tasks, calls and message history are still easily accessible from the Today scope (I don’t like to have the contacts in the Today scope so I use the dedicated one for them).
I don´t use many so called social apps and services so other scopes can be good and useful but I have no actual use for them.
I also reduced a number of installed applications on my phone because I do not use them: I removed all games, the searchlight app, the Calculus app, the dictionary and more. It´s partially because the Ubuntu launcher supports no re-grouping of icons (there are categories but they are not editable) so it is somewhat annoying to scroll to find these few that I use. The left-side Unity bar doesn´t help too much because it can comfortably accommodate just a limited number of icons. A user-defined category in for the desktop should help (something like ¨Favorites¨) but this possibility isn´t here.
So the most used Ubuntu Touch applications at the moment are:
- Web Browser
- Notes (Evernote-connected notetaking application)
- Shorts (RSS reader)
- Dekko (e-mail client)
- Music player
- Beru (e-book reader)
No pictures for this post, sorry. I use an older Web browser (the Firefox) here so I cannnot access my images on my Flickr page at all…
