Canonical is looking to improve the core apps that are already available for Ubuntu Touch and is organizing a new Core Apps Hack Days event that should galvanize the efforts of more developers towards this platform.
Native apps are what Ubuntu Touch needs more than anything and that’s because the team can only deal with the operating system, but the rest of the ecosystem has to come from third-party developers who need to take the rest of the journey.
The guys and gals who build Ubuntu Touch do provide a number of apps, like the Gallery or the Browser, but they can’t spread their efforts in all the directions. This is where Core Apps Hack Days comes into play.
