Ubuntu One Contact sync gets better Android device support

Errata: This an updated version of our previous post on the Android Application which wasn’t entirely clear about what was on offer. The Android application for Contact Sync is free – and always will be – rather the 30 day trial offering users free access to the sync feature – a staple of the Ubuntu One paid accounts -has been extended until October. Alongside that comes greater device support and and improved application.

The Ubuntu One team have just issued a piece of exciting news for Ubuntu One loving Android users out there: the free Ubuntu One Contacts Sync application now sports an improved interface and boasts even more support for popular Android devices including the Google Nexus One, Motorola Droid & HTC Dragon.

Naturally an Ubuntu One account is required to make use of the app – which can be found in the Android Market, just search ‘Ubuntu one’ – and the 30 day trial offer introduced in June has now been extended until October 10th.

If you’ve got a free account, loved the idea of contact sync but want to see whether it’s worth it then why not take advantage? All you need is your Ubuntu One username and password and et voila – contact sync.
