N9Apps: Ubuntu One comes to Harmattan (w/ Video)

For quite a few N9 users, Ubuntu is the main OS on their PC. Now, thanks to a member of the Ubuntu One team, an unofficial version of the cloud storage system is now available on our Harmattan devices. It is developed in QML and is quite slick for the little bit that I used it.

In the current release, there are only a few features implemented;

  • Browsing files
  • Downloading files
  • Slick UI

Don’t worry, it won’t stay like this.

I know a lot of you like Videos, so here’s one. It isn’t on the device itself, but using the QT emulator( or VNC?) Xephyr and scratchbox.

It’s not yet available on the Nokia store (although there are plans), but can be downloaded from the source link below.

Cheers DM for the tip!

            “No need to wait very long, Symbian port will be done in next 24 hours hahah”

            Huh? By the same dev, or has someone in Symbian community offered to do a port?

            • Michael Faro-Tusino

    The source is available at the original page so you can try compiling it yourself for Symbian Qt. the QML UI seems fairly standard so it could be easy to part over. Open source cloud service and client… awesome 🙂

    There is no way back after Nokia N9, the first phone which can evolve with user needs. If Nokia has fucked up with MeeGo without way of escape I will be happy with Ubuntu in my phone. If Nokia don’t want to create market anymore, but will be satisfied with manufacturing hardware only, then fine with you Nokia. Nokia can be one of several suppliers for Windows devices for microscopic and irrelevant market, so then Nokia also can be supplier for massive market of my future Ubuntu phone. I counted on MeeGo, but if this can’t work any more then I am so sorry, but it can be Ubuntu. It is even more matured then MeeGo. I don’t care for Nokia so much, if Nokia don’t care for me at all. Thank you for several years with Symbian, good bye for good, and that would be all. It was interesting time with Symbian and Nokia phones, time for next step of evolution. I really love my N9 it is a pity Nokia don’t want clients like me. Just wanted to say this.
