Aren't you bored with Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS and Windows Phone OS? Sometimes you might even feel sick with these OS and would badly wish to have a new operating system. Isn't it? While it's true that these OS are being constantly upgraded, you can’t deny the fact that there's a need for a new extraordinary OS. It was just Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS, and now Ubuntu is all set to join the club. Yes, it's time to welcome Ubuntu's Touch OS to our smartphones and tablets! Ubuntu, the creator of the most popular operating system - Linux, has recently come up with the idea of one operating system to power your computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs also. This ambitious idea of Ubuntu seems to have gained huge popularity and with the earliest images of the Touch OS, it has now become one of the most anticipated OS. And now, let’s take a look at the impressively touch focused operating system:

According to sources, there isn't much of a difference between the tablet version and the smartphone version of the OS in performance as well as design. Needless to say, the tablet version has wider screens than the smartphone version. And when it comes to applications, you get to download a number of applications and games and customize your smartphone or tablet as you please. But the app choices is surely less! Ubuntu, just like the other new platforms in the OS market, is trailing behind Google’s Play Store and Apple's App store. Considering the fact that Ubuntu still lacks an official app store, you can expect the count to increase, if Ubuntu launches an official app store. Besides this, Ubuntu Touch OS has confirmed that it supports the most popular web apps like Twitter, Evernote and Facebook.
Software and Interface:

Ubuntu's software is just super responsive and the fastest ever. When compared to the messy Tizen OS and Firefox OS unveiled at MWC 2013, Ubuntu's is great and has the potential to compete against Android, iOS and Windows. Talking about the look of the home screen, Ubuntu Touch OS separates the standards like battery life, time and date, signal strength, etc with a black line on the top of the screen. What's new here is the Search option above the black line that allows you to search for anything you want, without closing any open application. Swiping left and right on your smartphone or tablet, takes you to your home screen that's dedicated to contents like video, music and so on. Not to mention, it’s all just a finger movement (say you have to move your finger from one side to the other) that takes you to an entirely new level of smartphone or tablet experience.
Ubuntu's Touch OS, a well-designed and compelling operating system for multiple devices, seems to be a perfect rival for iOS and Android. Well, Apple's iOS or Google's Android has lost its shine long ago and now, manufacturers as well as consumers have started to look for something innovative. At times like these, there's a high chance for this Touch OS from Ubuntu to dominate the OS world, even when there's a lot of improvement needed.
