I've received my dogwood batch #librem5 and am testing an app I've made for it. I'm currently finding it generally a better experience than what my pinephone has provided.


@eyecreate Two questions: How is battery life on the Librem 5? What does the app do, and is it publicly available?

@linmob battery life is okay, though I haven't used it like a daily driver yet. I haven't measured, but I've used it constantly for a few hours before needing to recharge. The app is for tracking vehicle maintenance and some maintenance reminders. An initial version is on flathub.

@eyecreate Thanks! Does the camera work yet (as in work at all)? (I am in the Evergreen batch and wonder what to expect from the Librem 5.)

@linmob There is no camera app installed yet, and cheese gets upset, so I suspect that is still TODO.

@linmob @eyecreate
Seems to be a car log app. Something I'm missing on UbuntuTouch (the existing one is old and unusable).

It would be nice to have one on Librem OS/Mobian. Wink, hint. 😉

@normandc @linmob The app is on flathub. Flathub autobuilds arm64, so once flatpak/flathub was set up it was easy to run on both Librem 5 and pinephone.
