To reach the global market with your mobile application, Qt is the answer. Qt applications have a huge market coverage in mobile devices as Nokia, a global market leader in mobile phones, has a broad smartphone portfolio with large installed base. A recent research study also testifies that: the average application in Nokia’s Ovi Store generated 160% more daily downloads than the average iOS application in Apple’s App Store. Nokia has also confirmed that Qt will be a core component in its strategy to bring applications to the next billion.
Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. With Qt, you can write applications once and deploy them across desktop, mobile, and embedded operating systems. The core programming languages for Qt are C++ and QML, the latter being used for UI design. If you are experienced with the Objective-C or Java™ programming language, you will have your first Qt project running within hours.
This library is a guide to iOS, Android, and Windows Phone developers to expand their applications' coverage by porting them to Qt. It contains information on the Qt technology in general, needed development tools, porting examples, and platform comparisons both from programming and design perspective.
