Qeddit is a reddit client for Symbian and Meego devices. Its fast and fun! The app consists of a Qt based client library for reddit and a QtQuick based UI for the library. The app is fast and pretty easy on the eyes.


The UI and code design was kept as simple as possible.

Problem Areas

QtQuick and Qt are such great frameworks and they give you such flexibility that you don't really feel limited to what you can accomplish with it. QtWebkit component seems to be needing more work for Symbian and doesn't seem to support multitouch, a hack was used in this app, but works fine on Nokia N9.

Upcoming features

  • Ability to login to reddit
  • Fetch the reddits you are subscribed to and show them as a bookmark page.
  • Ability to view and post comments.
