    Re: Understanding About Widget

    1. A widget is a package with a html file, javascript file, css file and an icon
    2. A widget is a simple offline html page displayed on the phone as app
    3. You can create a widget using the appwizard from nokia or the developing tool webtool (if you want edit your html file and javascript file)
    4. Size of display Touch support. Access to phone devices like calendar, sensors, camera, etc.
    I discovered Qt in the summer 2010, it was sooo easy and nice to use, that I begun to write some apps.
    Thank you Nokia, for giving me this possibility!

    1. No, only Qt (https://projects.developer.nokia.com...ationsapi/wiki)
    2. Yes, if you are a good developer you can do it! I never used https (secure) on my widgets. You have to use http requests (ajax / web 2.0). But you can do it.
