Little sneak previews

Recently I’ve been busy working on the right edge gesture in Ubuntu Touch. Here’s a little sneak preview:

Note that this is still work in progress and probably won’t hit the image really soon.

If you’ve been paying attention while watching the video you might have noticed that I used Ubuntu Touch to control my living room lighting. That is done with a set of Philips Hue Lightbulbs which I got end of last year and a soon to be released app called “Shine”, running on Ubuntu Touch, MeeGo and Desktops.

Stay tuned!

  1. Nice! Really great work. Should make it a joy to switch between running apps.

    Is there a way to close the app from app switcher ?

    • Michael says:

      Not yet. As I said, it’s work in progress. Still some open questions with design. I’ll definitely fight for a way to close ’em in here.

  3. Dude, this is so cool. A really great idea to switch between apps like that. Since I moved from my N9 to a HTC One, I feel locked in apps – the button just isn’t as natural as this swiping. So, great work, I’ll install this some day for sure :D

    • Michael says:

      Yeah… Whenever I break my Ubuntu phone because well, that’s what happens when working on such stuff I still fall back to the N9. There’s nothing out there yet which would be as good as Harmattan.

    Yes I immediately noticed the Hue lightbulbs controlling app! I cannot wait to check that out!

    What about Stuapp? I could never switch phones without that, it’s central to my life.
