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!!!
Yesterday on MeeGo Forum , ntadej announced its underdevelopment application, which is a Google+ client for MeeGo Harmattan devices Nokia N9 and Nokia N950. Currently, MeePlus is in very early stage of development so it only features profile and search on Google+. More features will be added soon but Google’s API restrictions has limited access to public contents only.
You can donwnload app from here .
It is still not available in Nokia Store but will be added soon.
You need to turn on Developer mode from Settings>Security>Developer Mode . Now locate and open the *.deb file using any file explorer, we recommend using Filebox (download from store). It will ask for your permission and agree and you’re done! 🙂
It’s an open source project, so you can also contribute to it from its Github repository at https://github.com/ntadej/MeePlus
