Oh Well! I’m rest assured that our MeeGo and Maemo friends would be glad to see this. Over the past few months, there has been an online movement (a kinda petition) for the porting of WhatsApp to the MeeGo family. While I was playing in the “NokiaTips Lab” 🙂 I stumbled upon a post by our friends at MeeGoExperts
With the interest of the global village at heart, the community folks at talk.maemo.org have joined forces together to port this wonderful IM solution called WhatsApp on devices running the Meego Harmattan and Maemo OS. The image above shows the development being tested on one of the devices. Additionally, we hear that the beta is expected to be released anytime next week.
You can monitor the development process here: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82384
You can as well contribute on its development as it would help in creating a wonderful app.
As usual we are @NokiaTips 🙂
A lucky fellow on maemo.org got a Nokia N9 from his friend working in Nokia which is running unreleased PR1.2 for Nokia N9. This topic has excited the members to find out what this new PR1.2, much awaited release for N9, looks like. A hot discussion about PR1.2 is going in the thread.
He shared few screenshots:
As you may notice in above screenshot, this PR1.2 has support for app folders on homescreen, copy-paste functionality in browser, etc. Changelog also says that it brings support for video calling but tamerbatar, who is lucky enough to have this running on his N9, has refused such feature in his PR1.2.

Let’s face it. Applications contribute to part of the reasons why people are passionate about different mobile platforms. Applications equally contribute to part of the reasons why people purchase certain brands of handsets. Have you ever wondered how these day to day applications you use are developed? Of course they are developed by normal human beings like you and I and they do benefit from the market as soon as their application(s) become popular demand. Now, let’s guide you on mobile application development:
Wow, we are over with the “Prior mind setup” now, let’s go ahead and give you tips on what you will need for a proper Nokia application development environment! 🙂
Have you heard of Qt? – Well, Qt is a cross platform application framework that is widely used for developing application software with a graphical user interface (GUI) (in which cases Qt is classified as a widget toolkit), and also used for developing non-GUI programs such as command-line tools and consoles for servers. It is pronounced “cute”. Read more about Qt here.
@qtbynokia: This is Qt’s official twitter account. Feel free to follow them and get updates on their day to day Qt activities. They would be glad to support you when you have issues.
@ltomuta: Lucian is a Qt expert. He is a friend of our team. Some of our team members have contact with him in the past and he was glad to help us without complain or restrictions. He is a nice person to follow.
@janole: Yes! We highly recommend our dear Jan. You may not necessarily get support from him as regards to Qt but you ‘ll surely be needing some motivational talks or conversations. It may interest you to know that he is the author of the popular symbian twitter client – Gravity.
@talv: Talv is similar to Jan. He develops for both the Symbian and MeeGo OS. He is the author of SymNote, SymFTP, SymPaper and MeeNote. He is sure to help you when you require assistance too.
We are rest assured that there are so many more Qt experts out there. Do you know any of them? Please use the comment section and write about them. 🙂
See what we did with Qt. It’s actually no big deal 🙂 you can do better!
We do hope you have a pleasant Qt experience. Please Do NOT forget to share with us. GoodLuck!!!
