Ubuntu Touch (also known as Ubuntu Phone) is a mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system, being developed by the UBports community. Written in Qt, it is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, but the original goal of convergence was intended to bring Ubuntu Touch to laptops, desktops, IOT devices, TVs and smart watches for a complete unified user experience.
The project was started by Canonical Ltd. but Mark Shuttleworth announced that Canonical would terminate support due to lack of market interest on 5 April 2017. It was then adopted by UBports as a community project. The UBports project was seeded by Marius Gripsgard in 2015 and the programming source code was transferred to the UBports Foundation where it now resides. UBports' mission is to support the collaborative development of Ubuntu Touch and to promote its widespread use.
