Have you already tried out the new Qt Quick Components 1.1 for Symbian? They are a part of the latest Qt SDK release. We also updated the Symbian design guidelines for your convenience, and included a brand new set of visual design stencils for you to create app mockups. The stencils (and the components) come in both dark and light theme, so you can choose which you want to use for your app. The stencil set is available for Adobe Illustrator CS5, Adobe Fireworks CS5 AND Inkscape version 0.48 or above.
If you wish to update your previous Avkon application to using the Qt Quick components, this library section might be just the resource you are looking for! It provides you a comparison between the different component sets, and helps you learn which Qt Quick Component is the best counterpart for the Avkon components you have been using. We have a similar comparison section for Nokia N9 to Symbian, as well. Take a look!
And then there’s The icon competition. Last week we announced an icon competition for creating your application launcher icon with our icon templates. The templates can now be found in one single toolkit, and are available for Adobe Illustrator CS5, Adobe Fireworks CS5 AND Inkscape version 0.48 or above. For step-by-step guidelines on how to use the templates, just pick your platform and click on the link below!
If you wonder why there are different templates for different platforms, see this Iconography style summary section…
