Current state of Qt mobile cross platform development (android,ios,windows 8 phone)
I am trying to evaluate the suitability of Qt for a project that in broad terms has the following requirements.
- simple UI which incorporates real time video, and touch/swipe
- real time capture from device's camera (frame grabs & video recording)
- real time device to cloud communication over an internet connection
- real time video & image manipulation (eg compress/decompress/ scale/crop)
whilst I could develop 3 separate native apps in the various ides & languages, my preference would be a Qt app that has a few subtle changes by way of includes or conditional compilation to handle each platform.
I can see the IOS and android side of things should not be an issue, but as far as I can tell there is no formal (eg supported) way to currently deploy to windows phone. is this correct? or am I missing something?
I'm not an expert in the field of Windows Phone (actually I've never seen a Windows Phone in the wild), but the docs say it's well supported: http://doc.qt.io/QtSupportedPlatforms/index.html .
(But who knows what will happen when Windows 10 will be released..)
