Facebook Plus by somnathbanik is an innovative Facebook client which integrates location information from Nokia Maps, and provides an enhanced events calendar.
The project, which was originally created as an entry in the Symbian Qt Quick Components Competition 2012Q1, uses Symbian Qt Quick components for most of the UI and is well documented in the main wiki article Facebook+ Facebook client with Nokia Maps – app showcase. There are a lot of good facebook clients; we like that this one integrates well with the platform components and adds new features to those provided by Facebook itself.
Since it was Featured Project of the Week a few weeks ago the project has grown – it has been ported to the Nokia N9 (MeeGo Harmattan) and a number of defects have been fixed. Screenshots of the N9 versions are shown below.
Somnath is interested in hearing your suggestions for improvement. Please contact him on the discussion boards.
We’ve just awarded our second PureView Imaging Competition 2012Q winner a fantastic new Nokia 808 PureView. The competition has already been a huge success with a particularly high quality and quantity of entries across a broad range of imaging topics.
Due to the extremely high quality of entries, we will be awarding an additional 2 Nokia 808 PureView devices in the final part of the competition – bringing the total to 5. The Nokia Event could be awarded to any of the phone winners.
We are also in the final stages of updating the Qt Camera Demo to support video recording (version 1.2). This should be released next week – but the source is already available here if you need it for your next competition entry! Note that the documentation and updated Camera Guide should come soon after.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. We welcome any feedback you might have on the imaging apis or on this competition.
