Ubuntu Linux Look for Android Smartphone with Ubuntu Launcher

If you have been using Ubuntu Linux for some time, then you might have familiarized yourself with the Unity interface. The Unity interface in Ubuntu Linux makes working with this operating system very easy – you can easily search for the documents, music, videos, files, and launch programs. If you want to have the same Ubuntu Unity interface in your Android smartphone, then you can use the Ubuntu Launcher for Android. It is a small app that mimics the original Unity launcher of Ubuntu in your smartphone. For added aesthetical purposes, you can also choose a Ubuntu wallpaper for your Android device to give it a complete Ubuntu look.

On the left side of the launcher, you will see shortcuts to the various running apps and the Unity Launcher settings. If you touch the Unity icon, you would be able to search for the apps an files as usual.

  • Heh… The screenshots are of Ubuntu Launcher ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=be.robinj.ubuntu ) yet you linked to Unity Launcher, which is a different app.

    • I am really sorry, I have corrected the links. I took screenshots in Android, but wrote everything from a Windows PC and made a mistake while googling the links. Please accept my apologies. Congratulations for creating a really great app !
