Just in case you missed it, you can now wake up to your favorite toons via the alarms in the clock app. No better way to start your day!
We have been working on a new clock app update with lots of goodies :-) I thought I would summarize the release briefly. Huge props to Bartosz Kosiorek for helping out with this release and coordinating with the canonical designers...

Hurray for a new release of code!
 
At last! #opensource  
Today, we’re happy to be open sourcing the biggest piece of our Ubuntu One file syncing service. The code we’re releasing is the server side of what desktop clients connected to when syncing local or remote changes. This is code where most of the innovation and hard work went throughout the years, where we faced most of the scaling challenges and the basis on which other components were built upon. We have released it under a AGPLv3 license and h...

This is a really slick app for navigating on ubuntu touch. Give it a try on your next trip.
 
GPS Navigation 0.23 released! uNAV is available now into the #ubuntuphone Store.
Now you'll have:
 * A great UI:
  - With a complete system integration.
  - Nice and more consistent menus.
  - Add/Delete favorites in the Ubuntu way (slide left/right).
  - Fullscreen option.
  - Integrated zoom controls.
 * Maps from Mapbox
 * Fixed: Store new favorites.

I want to say a huge thank you to Joerg Berroth (https://launchpad.net/~joergberroth) for his work migrating to QML! Thanks mate!

Enjoy it!

If you’re running ubuntu wily,  try out snapcraft and get to work on turning packaged software into snaps!

We've gone global! Really pleased that our fans worldwide can now purchase both +BQ E4.5 and E5 Ubuntu phones via their Ubuntu global store ‪#‎UbuntuPhone‬ Read more >> http://ubunt.eu/U4f1M9
  The successful European launches of the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition and it’s slightly larger brother, the BQ Aquaris E5 HD Ubuntu Edition, have seen the appetite for Ubuntu phones grow the world over. As result of this latent demand, BQ has created an Ubuntu global store where anyone can now buy an Aquaris Ubuntu Edition handset. We’re really excited by this move and BQ’s clear commitment to ensuring more of our fans worldwide get their hand...
