Install Ubuntu Touch Music App 2.0 on Ubuntu 14.10

Mark Shuttleworth’s last year set himself target to achieving Convergence on all Ubuntu enabled devices. Convergence is an idea that there should be ONLY one operating system that runs on all devices. So your smart phone, tablet, PC, and TV would all run the same Operating System meaning apps designed to run on one device will also run on other devices as well and the design will adapt to the display being used.


As part of this ambition, Victor Thompson had been doing a rapid redesign on the Touch Music App. The convergence ready Touch Music app is almost ready to go live but if you fancy test running the app, you can now install the Touch app on your Ubuntu 14.10 desktop from ppa.
