Qt API mapping for iOS, Android and Windows phone developers – bring iPhone/iPad apps to Symbian/N9

| October 7, 2011 | 50 Replies

With Nokia’s Ovi Store (now Nokia Store) reported to supposedly deliver 160% more downloads per app than Apple’s App Store (and possibly well over 9 million daily downloads now) it would be quite understandable why other developers may want a piece of this action.


There’s certainly an audience there willing to buy great quality apps. With the Qt API Mapping tool  for iOS, iPad and iPhone apps can be ‘ported’ over for Symbian, N9 (and whatever secret Qt platform they have to unveil at Nokia World :p). But it’s not just iOS. There’s also one for Android and Windows Phone.

If you are familiar with iOS development, this tool assists with porting iPhone or iPad apps to the latest version of the Qt platform delivered in Symbian phones and the Nokia N9 smartphone. Using this tool, you can browse a list of iOS API calls and find the equivalent classes and methods offered by Qt. You can also search for a specific iOS API call and find the equivalent Qt API call, along with example code and links to the API documentation for both platforms.

    First nokia need to get some softwares to support inbuilt hardwares, such as fm radio – transmitter and receiver and second one is to enable front facing camera for video chat! inclusion of these two features will help to boost the sale of nokia N9.
    Also, what nokia can do near future is give recent updates of meego 1.3 and ithink 1.4 is out too.
    I would be very happy to see Nokia on top of all phones beating all phones in all aspects!!!
