The UBports team has published notes on work the developers are doing to improve the performance and portability of their mobile operating system. The team has made progress in making UBports run smoothly on the upcoming PinePhone. Some other changes are becoming available, including PureMaps, a map browsing and navigation app; and Ghostcloud, an app for accessing Nextcloud instances. "In the past fortnight there have been updates to some notable apps. The new version of OpenStore asks if you want to contribute a donation to the developer of the app you are about to download, if the developer has added that prompt. We put this at the top of the bill purposely! PureMaps was created originally for Sailfish but has now been ported to UT. It includes a whole range of features from Mapbox and soon it is expected that offline maps will be working. The developer, Jonatan Hatakeyama Zeidler who led on this doesn't even have a UT device but very generously agreed to help port it, supported by others. The app works beautifully. Apart from that, a reminder that Alfred has a Ghostcloud app for accessing Nextcloud." More updates and information can be found in the UBports team's blog post.
