    Where to find mobility documentation (for example Symbian 3)

    I have done developing for Android and there documentation is easily available. I was wondering where to find documentation and examples for Symbian specific (or Maemo/Meego specific) documentation regarding telephone APIs and how to make for example Widgets for Symbian or Maemo home screens?

    Thank you

    Best Regards Tuomas

    The documentation should be present in the install directory. Look for doc/html/index.html. Should also be online somewhere.

    PS: I've worked with both Adroid and Qt, and the Qt docs are head and shoulders above Android.

    Misread you a bit the first time. The main Qt docs are here: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.6/index.html , or if you want to pick a particular version, here: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/ . Qt and Symbian together here: http://developer.symbian.org/wiki/Us...n_C++_Together .

    Lots of good background and tutorials off that first page I referenced.

    Examples are good and the documentation is also good, but I cannot find examples and documents how to make "home screen widgets" (Little windows user can add to home screen/ or desktop, they're called widgets in android, im not sure what is they're name in Nokia phones).

    They're called a fairy tale in Qt for Symbian.

    (Actually, you can do them in Symbian, but I doubt that there's a "pure Qt" way to do them.)

    Ok, so if you want to implement those you must use native API's both in Symbian and Maemo? What about mobility API, are all API's available (for example Contacts, etc) ? Do they work "out of the box" in all Symbian versions (Symbian ^3, S60) ?

    Thanks again...

    Nokia development documentation is not an easy one since it covers different topics/technologies across many websites.

    To create home screen widget, you should look at http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...53F6506B3.html ,
