We’ve seen the power of Qt on a range of devices, from MeeGo and Symbian to Windows computers, Macs, iPhones, webOS handsets and Androids.
One of the aims of cross platform apps is to become a leveller. If everyone has access to the same apps on any platform, that’s a good thing for Nokia’s devices (and well, for all platforms in general as everyone shares the content). That’s great for developers too as they have a wider source of revenue. It’s mainly bad for maybe Apple/Google in that they would lose the exclusivity of the hundreds of thousands of apps – why go for that platform if it’s available anywhere? Note there’s also the reversal of App sharing with Myriad’s Alien Dalvik that allows the running of Android apps on Non Androids (Demoed at the time was the N900).
In a post from Nokia’s Qt blog we see the development of Qt apps for Android as well as a Qt Creator integration for Android.
I still don’t understand the technicalities of NOT being able to have Qt for WP. Hmmm…Why not force development on Microsoft’s platforms but still let it use Qt apps?
Thanks for the tip, Jim!
