3rd Party Dev Adds New Features to Ubuntu TV [Video]

A third-party developer has taken the code for Ubuntu TV and added some changes of his own. The results are pretty stunning.

Amongst Joseph Mills’ changes are:

  • Torrent lens with coverflow
  • Nokia Maps Lens (embedded in the Dash)
  • Slick weather pane
  • Themed settings, including session menu

As well as being visually very nice, the changes made hint at not only the possibilities available with Ubuntu TV but with Unity as a whole.

Many of you, like me, probably wouldn’t mind seeing a few of these changes make their way to the desktop version of Unity…
