Dogfooding Ubuntu Phone
On this page I (Jono Bacon) am tracking my dogfooding of Ubuntu Touch on a Galaxy Nexus phone. My carrier is T-Mobile (US) and I am only tracking the features and requirements I need to use the phone on a general day to day basis. I am not tracking every bug or feature that is required for a final and complete version of Ubuntu Touch.
The primary functions I am striving for in this dogfooding is:
Making/recieving calls and text messages -- WORKING.
Browsing the web on my mobile and wireless connections -- WORKING FOR WIFI, TODO FOR MOBILE.
Browsing and adding contacts -- WORKING.
Taking photos with the camera and browsing them - -- WORKING.
Using the clock to see the time and wake me up in the morning -- TODO.
Features That Are Missing
Screen auto shut-off when not used (otherwise the screen stays on and the battery dies) - DONE
- Data on the cell network (primarily needed for browsing the web while out and about)
Setting the phone time - Can set this via the shell, but UI needed
- No alarm functionality in the clock app.
- No voicemail button.
- Speakerphone for calls
- Import and publication of contacts to an external service
- Can't add an app or item to the Launcher as a favorite.
