Is there a specific app you're looking for, or you just want the new unity which Ubuntu Touch is using? – dobey Apr 9 '13 at 13:34
@dobey, yes, I want the new Unity. – Hans Ginzel Sep 11 '15 at 17:25

If you are on Ubuntu 15.04, then just install the ubuntu-touch package.

You should then be able to select the alternate session at the login screen. Be warned though, that it is not yet ready for general replacement of unity7 though, and you will likely encounter some applications not being usable, or able to launch, and similar issues.
