I see there are some nice apps being developed for Ubuntu touch and that some of them support larger screens. Now, I would like to run some of these apps on my desktop? Is this possible at the moment? If so, how could it be done?
There is experimental emulator for ubuntu 14.04, when someone have it it can be installed from repositories:
For other cases I recommend: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Emulator
Hope it helps :)
