Talk:Symbian Qt Quick Components Competition 2012Q1

From Nokia Developer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Itapadar - where and how the link of the wiki should be submitted?

Hi,

where and how would someone submit the wiki describing about his/her app? should that be submitted as a comment in this wiki? Incase a nokia developer does an app, how would that be evaluated? and where would he/ she submit the same for evaluation?

Regards,

Indrajit

Hamishwillee - This is covered in the competition text

Hi Indrajit

where and how would someone submit the wiki describing about his/her app?  should that be submitted as a comment in this wiki? 

Anywhere you like on the wiki in its own article - not as a comment. From above "Article must have the category Category:Qt Quick and start with the text: {{Note|This is an entry in the [[Symbian Qt Quick Components Competition 2012Q1]]}}"

Incase a nokia developer does an app, how would that be evaluated? and where would he/ she submit the same for evaluation?

You would submit in the same way as everyone elses. If you're not using a Nokia email account for your Nokia Developer login, you can add a comment to your article stating you're from Nokia. In terms of assessment we'd look at your app along with everyone elses. If we thought it should win on its own merits then you would get a prize. However we would ensure that the number of prizes for community members would stay the same and you'd be announced as a winner in a separate category. Hope that makes sense!

Shizzl - legal terms - will this app be accepted?

hi,

i just read about the qt quick competition.

i'd like to create a programm using qt quick.

the programm is about changing theme effects on current symbian belle devices. but as it uses/installs theme effect / dll files which are part of the phone Firmware im not sure about legal terms.

would this programm be accepted for the competition?

greets

shizzl

shizzl 00:13, 12 March 2012 (EET)

Hamishwillee - Me either

Hi Shizzl

As a general rule we will allow an app to compete provided that the app itself is "legal" - by this I mean that if your app requires that the phone be jailbroken or that you are "using someone elses IPR without permission - either implicit or explicit" then we couldn't accept it. If however using the DLLs is permitted for themed apps we'd be fine with it.

Your app would then be judged on its UI interactions, not on the UI interactions it allows through its modification of themes.

Note that there are only 5 days to go!

Regards

Hamish

Shizzl -

Hi Hamish,

i would have to use nokia dlls and effect files. If i understood you right this is ok? Phone doesnt need to be jailbreaked. Works on every phone.

I have no dev cert, so i can not sign the programm. Is this a problem?

But anyways, as you said only the UI interactions will be judged and not the idea/use of programm, i guess i have only little chance to win. The programm itself is really simple to use.. , but the effect is BIG ;)

Cadlg - How about a deadline extension ?

How about a deadline extension ?

It would be nice to have at least a couple of weeks more. I'm sure it would allow more developers to submit an entry, or to submit a more polished entry.

This became much more interesting now that we know that the prizes are those marvelous 808s.

Any chance ?

Thanks !!

Shizzl -

I THINK so. If you can get it on Nokia Store then its fine. What I'm trying to avoid here is judging an app that Nokia would consider illegal or bad.

I have no dev cert, so i can not sign the programm. Is this a problem?

Can it be self signed? How could someone get hold of it.

But anyways, as you said only the UI interactions will be judged and not the idea/use of programm, i guess i have only little chance to win. The programm itself is really simple to use.. , but the effect is BIG ;)

I couldn't say, I'm not the judge :-) You're probably right though - we're not judging the "coolest app", but the "coolest app that uses Symbian Qt Quick Components in the best way - good navigation, within the style guide etc".

hamishwillee 01:31, 13 March 2012 (EET)

Hamishwillee - @Cadlg - I'll check

Hi Cadlg

Organising a competition extension is not quite as easy as you might think - I've had to reserve UI team review time, and slot this in with other interesting competitions we'd quite like to run. I will ask the stakeholders and will get back to you tomorrow, but you should assume the answer will be no.

Not to worry, we will be running other competitions in the near future.

Hamishwillee - Competition deadline extended by one week - better examples provided

Hi Competitors

On request of some developers, and to give existing competitors a chance to improve their apps further, we're extending the competition one week (to 26th March 2012). We're also providing some really good examples of the right way to use the Qt Quick components here (I've asked the project to add a SIS download. In the meantime you can browse the documentation or use SVN to get this from the source).

The judges have informed me that they will be looking at the following design elements:

  • Logical and consistent navigation structure
    • Back button is used to exit views and the app
    • Important features can be found. They aren't hidden behind odd menus or icons.
    • App is intuitive and easy to operate
    • Appropriate icons to represent functionality
  • App icon consistent with Symbian style
  • Correct use of the components
  • Non-threatening interface - don't ask the user for confirmation or passwords unless necessary
  • Good use of screen real estate
  • Utilising the toolbar where appropriate.

We recommend that both new and existing competitors re-review their submissions in light of the above feedback. Even if your app is pretty good already, you improve your chances of winning if your app usage of the components is close to our examples and it meets the "mini checklist"!

Please add a comment here if you update your entry so I can get it re-reviewed.

Regards

Hamish

Pippo2010 - @Hamish

I may review my app to make better use of headers in lists. Once updated I'll update this comment or send you a PM. Unfortunately it will be available again as self-signed SIS, since QA takes too long to meet deadline criteria. Thank you

pippo2010 12:27, 14 March 2012 (EET)

Hmm, it seems that it's better like this without modification. So, I guess there is no need to re-review my submission (if it was already reviewed). Thank you

Durfejs - @Hamishwillee TiToYo update

I polished my submission addressing the criteria mentioned above. The application itself did not need to be redesigned since it already met the criteria. Only the submission is extended with the points above. Please re-review this:

Thaks a lot.

KrisW1001 - My App is stuck in approval :(

I'm having some difficulties getting through approval at the moment (my mistakes, mostly -- this is the first thing I've put through the Store).

I guess I can still enter, right? I've an unsigned .sis that can be sent to the judges for evaluation.

KrisW1001 16:30, 15 March 2012 (EET)

Hamishwillee - KrisW1001 - Yes

I've sent you my email address so you can send me the unsigned sis for evaluation.
