Developing apps with Qt, featuring the Nokia 808 PureView

Executives from National Geographic, Pikchur, and 10tons discuss how easy it has been to use Qt in the development of their latest apps for Nokia’s smartphones. Combining that ease of development, with Nokia’s top-of-the-line hardware, global brand recognition, and distribution in more than 190 countries worldwide with Nokia Store, developers can reach more users, in more places, everyday. This video features the stunning new Nokia 808 PureView. See how easy it is to develop for Nokia with Qt:

National Geographic Photo Tips app powered by Qt

The Qt-based National Geographic Photo Tips app provides a collection of the best advice and techniques from National Geographic’s legendary photographers, so individuals can learn how to enhance their photo-taking ability. Aron Kohn, Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development at National Geographic, tells us about the new National Geographic Photo Tips app available in Nokia Store. “Nokia has a history of being a leader in the camera phone space, so for National Geographic it is was an easy fit as we were conceptualizing this application,” says Aron. “We had one designer and one developer dedicated to this effort, and it only took six weeks to develop,” says Kirk Ballou, CEO of US-based Touch Titans who developed the app with National Geographic. The app is available in seven different languages and targets multiple devices — NFC capabilities will be added to the app soon. “What is exciting about this application and Nokia’s reach is that it enables us to reach out to this whole user base. Right from the beginning they will be able to understand the essence of taking photography in a whole new way,” says Aron. See for yourself why the National Geographic Photo Tips app makes a perfect companion for the new Nokia 808 PureView experience. See how easy it is to develop for Nokia with Qt:

10tons: Developing award-winning games for Nokia with Qt

Developers 10tons combine technology, art and storytelling to bring games to life. All of the games created for Nokia platforms by Finland’s 10tons Ltd are developed with Qt. Their game “Sparkle” won 250K€ for Nokia’s “Calling All Innovators 2011″contest. They are now releasing two brand new games – Azkend 2 (a sequel to the popular Azkend); and Ironworm, which is a spin-off of the game Swingworm. Tero Alatalo and Sampo Töyssy discuss their work at 10tons creating games using Qt for Nokia’s latest Symbian smartphones. “Our biggest motivator is to make fun, easy-to-approach games that are high quality,” says Tero. “Game development is fun. It is one of those areas that combine technology, traditional arts and storytelling – it is really rewarding to see those pieces put together to bring your games to life.” See how easy it is to develop for Nokia with Qt:


Pikchur: Share pix & videos to all your social networks with one touch

The free Pikchur app allows you to send photos or videos from anywhere to everywhere, including syncing with all of your social networks. The company initially developed the app for use on Windows Phone, and then after seeing where their user base has been coming from (places like Russia, China, and India), they decided to build an app for MeeGo and Symbian smartphones to improve their reach around the world. “”We decided to use Qt because it allowed us to build once, and then export to several devices, so we didn’t have to write the code for every individual device,”” says Peter Martinez, Founder at Pikchur. Aaron Benjamin from India’s Xoriant Solutions notes that the Qt component called ‘Qt Linguist’ enables the Pikchur app to support multiple languages, all from a single line of code. Peter says, “”Nokia has always been known for having high-end camera phones, and the photos you see over the years are becoming more professional. The quality of the photos people are uploading are much better. It’s great news for us, because our users take advantage of these new features and send out more photos.””
