    Home Screen widget


    I have a QtQuick app and i need to develop for it a home screen widget app (seperate from the original app)
    that all of its function should be to sit in the home screen and show 1-2 short rss stories from remote xml and when clicking on the widget it should open the original app. (should work on sym^1 + sym^3)

    My question are:
    Is WRT the right solution for this? if so is there a framework template thats best for this?
    Should i use something like https://projects.developer.nokia.com/hswidgetsinqt?
    i dont want the widget to have any functionality/UI beside its HS widget represantion

    Re: Home Screen widget

    it is possible,
    your html/JS code for feeding the RSS
    <script language="javascript">
    //launch Qt app with Platform Services 1.0 AppManager API ( http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resources/Library/Web/web-apps/symbian-web-runtime/symbian-web-runtime-api-reference/platform-services-10-javascript-api-reference/platform-services-10-appmanager-api.html )
    but how would you distribute your app? because are 2 different applications: one developed in WRT and one in Qt...
