We have some great news to share about Ubuntu One support for Android devices.
Ubuntu One Contacts for Android
We recently released an Android version of the Ubuntu One Contacts sync application. This app will sync your phone address book with your Ubuntu One personal cloud to help keep your digital life together. An Ubuntu One account is required.
Ubuntu One Contacts is based on the existing Funambol application but we’ve made a few enhancements.
- You no longer need a custom username and password. Sign in with your standard Ubuntu One username and password (same as your Ubuntu SSO account)
- Many interface updates to improve the application’s overall usability
Ubuntu One Contacts is now available for free from the Android Market. Just search for “Ubuntu One” and install. Remember that we’ve temporarily removed the time limit on the mobile contacts sync trial so more people can experience this feature. After the Ubuntu 10.10 release on October 10, we will re-enable the 30-day time limit.
The hackers among you are also welcome to download the source code of our Android application and learn how it works.
