I have been using some Ubuntu related android apps on my Nexus 5 for almost a week now and thought i should collect them all and bring them to you. This collection makes this article unique.

Ubuntu Touch Styled Lockscreen App for Android

While Canonical are busy trying to drum up interest from OEMs and mobile networks, as well as raising money to create their own high-end handset, here’s something to tide over the impatient but excited amongst you: an Ubuntu Touch lock-screen for Android.

This faithful replica app is the work of a rather natty developer over on the XDA Developer forums.

And while it, understandably, doesn’t magically transform Android into Ubuntu’s fledgling mobile system this app does help bring some of its allure to Android.

Features include:
  •     Swipe screen to left to open phone
  •     Animated infographic
  •     SMS and Missed Calls notifications shown in infographic
  •     Lock-screen security
  •     On-screen music buttons
  •     Customisable user name
  •     Time, date & alarm info
Ubuntu Lockscreen for Android is a free download available for Android phones running 2.1 or higher.

Ubuntu One also offers a Ubuntu One Music app for Android and iOS. The app allows you to stream your music to your mobile device from wherever you are – you can also cache files on your device for offline listening. This feature costs $3.99 a month and includes 20GB of storage space – you can try it free for the first 30 days. It also works in concert with the Ubuntu One Music Store included with Ubuntu One’s Rhythmbox music player – any music you purchase is instantly delivered to your Ubuntu One account and available in the Ubuntu One Music app.

Sync Contacts

Ubuntu One can synchronize your contacts and store them online. Currently, you can import contacts from Facebook on the Ubuntu One website or add them manually. Previous versions of Ubuntu supported contacts sync with the Evolution email client, but contact sync with Thunderbird appears to be absent in Ubuntu 12.04.

Ubuntu Phone Live Wallpaper for Android

Setting Ubuntu Live wallpaper for your android device is an awesome way to show your love for ubuntu.

As the wallpaper is based on Ubuntu Phone’s “Welcome Screen” – ‘lock screen’ in real world speak - the “animated” concept is that of concentric patterns quietly pulsing in and out.

Its been quite some time i started using the wallpaper and its working flawlessly on my Nexus 5 device.As the wallpaper is based on Ubuntu Phone’s “Welcome Screen” – ‘lock screen’ in real world speak - the “animated” concept is that of concentric patterns quietly pulsing in and out.
In front of that is a larger circle which displays the date and time by default, or can be set to show battery life as a percentage by double-tapping anywhere on the wallpaper.

Minor customisation options have been added recently to Ubuntu Phone Live Wallpaper.


The major change concerns the “circle” centre-point of the wallpaper. This can now be resized and repositioned from the ‘Live Wallpaper Preview‘ screen.

Pinching in and out will make the circle smaller and bigger respectively; whilst a simple tap and drag on it will allow you to move it anywhere on the screen.

The ‘Clock’ and ‘Date’ formats can be adjusted, too. When previewing the Live Wallpaper press the ‘Settings…’ item to:

    Set Clock display to 12 hour or 24 hour mode
    Set Date format to DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY
