Nokia have announced a new Qt SDK for their series 40 Touch and Type phones. Qt is pre-installed on all new Nokia smartphones and downloadable to millions of smartphones people are already using.
“Using the Nokia Qt SDK to build their apps, developers will discover a complete, easy-to-use tool that brings a shortened workflow, simplified development and intuitive UI libraries resulting in 70 percent fewer lines of code, cutting creation time dramatically,” Nokia said in a statement.
For developers, Nokia has now enabled free Java and Symbian signing, in-app purchase, improved revenue share, and advanced developer analytics.
Nokia enabled developers to make in-app purchase, enabling a wide range of app pricing options in Ovi Store such as subscription models, micro-transactions, or “try and buy.”
So will developers take a look at Qt as another potential platform?
Any developers out there thinking about taking a look?
