    which platform and how should i start

    i am new to symbian development
    i want to develop a new symbian apllication that work on most of the symbian devices that will deal with an rss.php file and whenever a new feed is posted it must give notification to the user.
    I think that my application should run in the background to send such a notification like the whatsapp application.
    I downloaded the offline qt sdk 1.2.1 and the affline qt sdk 1.1.2 and tested them; I faced many problems:
    when i try to install the sis file of the project that i made on my symbian S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 using qt creater it says that not compatible
    and in the projects tab where u add a debugger there is debuggers for symbian^1, symbian^3, and symbian belle as well as the desktop and the harmattan and the simulator
    can anybody help because i don't know from where should i start.

    Re: which platform and how should i start

    Last year Nokia decided to go with Windows Phone operating system for the phone of the future. While Symbian devices are still available by the time you are a proficient developer there will not be any need for Symbian developers. Before you get too involved in a obsolete operating system you should learn Windows Phone. Simply sign up at Microsoft and you can get a free environment to develop and learn on.

    If i understood your requirement correctly then its something related to push notification inside your app. You may try utilizing the Notifications API from here :

    https://projects.developer.nokia.com...ationsapi/wiki

    which of course utilizes Qt.For the all the support on Qt, you may try searching here on Nokia developer or visit http://qt.digia.com

    i've read something about that but i'd prefer to run my application in the background and every interval of time i will see if there any new feed using the rss it will be better
    but the problem that I've installed the Qt SDK version 1.2.1 and can't debug for my symbian s60-3rd edition (nokia e75 phone)??

    When you try installing the sis file , it displays a warning app not compatible(?) , but even after that does it gets installed? Also did you pre-installed all the qt libs in your device?
