When Qt will support Android and iOS plattfrom

  • I wrote my application by targetting windows and Linux plattform using Qt.
    We are very happy with the performance of Qt app. Developement was also easy and Qt forums is having great support.
    We would like to know when Qt will support Android and iOS??

    Next release, Qt 5.1, will include preliminary iOS and Android support. You can already test by downloading and compiling the alpha.

  • From "New Features in Qt 5.1":http://qt-project.org/wiki/New-Features-in-Qt-5.1

    Qt 5.1 introduces support for following new platforms with technology preview status:

    • Qt for Android (Technology Preview)
    • Qt for iOS (Technology Preview)

    From "Qt 5.1 Alpha Available":http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2013/04/08/qt-5-1-alpha-available/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=qt-5-1-alpha-available

    Android & iOS

    To start with, we have added preliminary support for Android and iOS to Qt 5.1. This release is fully usable on both platforms and you can begin to develop for both OSs immediately. All of qtbase (Qt Core, Gui, Network etc.) is implemented. Qt Quick works very nicely on Android and most sensors are supported. There are, however, certain limitations. Some parts of Multimedia are not fully implemented and Qt Quick is not yet working on iOS. Tooling is also still a work in progress, and not everything can be done from within Qt Creator yet, but many things are already working nicely and smoothly. As announced last year, full Android and iOS support will come with Qt 5.2, but Qt 5.1 provides a solid base for developers to create full applications for these two platforms.

  • Full support for iOS and Android is announced on the Qt 5.2 release. Until then you can play with 5.1 (Alpha for the moment)
