Wave Goodbye to Phone Apps, ‘Scopes’ are the Future

Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

Ubuntu presented “Scopes”, its first ever smartphone software, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Debian-based Linux operating system has been developed as an alternative to downloading ‘apps’ and aims to meet the user’s day-to-day needs by converging multiple services together all in one program.

Scopes are like individual home screens for different kinds of content, giving you access to everything from movies and music to local services and social media, without having to go through individual apps.

Related content on one screen, instead of hiding it behind different apps. Just don’t try to take your battery out.
