Need helping getting started with snapping?
September 12, 2016
Are you interested in snapping software and need help? There’s a lot of good reasons for snapping software: You get software out to millions of users: Ubuntu (snapd installed by default since Ubuntu 16.04 LTS), snapd available too on Arch, Debian, Gentoo, Fedora, openSUSE, openembedded, yocto and OpenWRT. You get to define the experience: ship the stack the way you tested it. Just one simple test-scenario for you. Building a snap is simple (one piece of YAML controls the build), publishing is instantaneous (one command to run, automatic review).
More Help App design ponderings
May 20, 2015
Daniel McGuire is unstoppable. The work I mentioned yesterday was great, here’s some more, showing what would happen when the user selects “Playing Music”. More feedback we received so far: Kevin Feyder suggested using a different icon for the app. Michał Prędotka asked if we were planning to add more icons/pictures and the answer is “yes, we’d love to if it doesn’t clutter up the interface too much”. We are going to start a call for help with the content soon.
Giving Ubuntu devices users a head-start
March 6, 2015
In the past weeks Nick, David, a few others and I worked on an app / a website, which could easily collect information which will give users of an Ubuntu device a head-start. All our collective experience and knowledge, easily added and translated. We achieved quite a bit. We’re now very close to getting a first version of it online (both as an app in the store and as a website).
Sometimes it's so easy to help out
February 27, 2015
I already blogged about the help app I was working on a bit in the last time. I wanted to go into a bit more detail now that we reached a new milestone. What’s the idea behind it? In a conversation in the Community team we noticed that there’s a lot of knowledge we gathered in the course of having used Ubuntu on a phone for a long time and that it might make sense to share tips and tricks, FAQ, suggestions and lots more with new device users in a simple way.
Helping Ubuntu devices users
February 1, 2015
In a recent conversation we thought it’d be a good idea to share tips and tricks, suggestions and ideas with users of Ubuntu devices. Because it’d help to have it available immediately on the phone, an app could be a good idea. I had a quick look at it and after some discussion with Rouven in my office space, it looked like hyde could fit the bill nicely.
