Cutehacks targeting Android, Symbian and more

[tweetmeme source= "cutehacks" only_single=false]Here is a video of two apps developed by Cutehacks: Yr.no and Fly running on Android 2.2 and Symbian. These native apps were originally written for Symbian but run great on Android as well:


Using Qt for Android (more specifically Necessitas and Ministro), the amount of code changes we had to do were minimal. This shows the power of Qt - it truly is cross-platform. Too see these apps running on MeeGo and Maemo as well - check out this video.

None of the apps above are available in Android Market yet. Be assured we'll tell you when/if that happens :)

Cross platform apps at MWC

Three of our apps are being shown at the Mobile World Congress this year, for several different devices. If you want to have a look at them in real life head over to the Qt booth located here. The video below shows our apps running on a few of the many platforms supported by Qt.

As you may know, Qt has been a cross-platform toolkit from day one, and supports many more mobile platforms than just Symbian and MeeGo. Here is a list of some of the different mobile platforms Qt runs on today:

Cutehacks developing WiMP

Press coverage

 

The Nokia mobile platforms might have lost one music service today, but it's soon gaining another. Today we're announcing that Cutehacks is developing the mobile client of WiMP (by Aspiro) for the Symbian platform. We're going to use Qt and Qt Quick, which will make it pretty easy to provide the service for any coming MeeGo handsets as well. We're focusing on Symbian^3 at the moment, but may later extend backwards to older Symbian platforms if there is a demand.

If you don't know what WiMP is, think of it as a direct competitor to Spotify. It is basically a streaming music service that, for a monthly subscription, gives you access to all the music of the world. It's even got Pink Floyd (which Spotify doesn't). You can see some screenshots and read more about WiMP here. Wimp is already available on Mac, Windows, iPhone and Android - so it is high time we bring it to the Nokia platforms as well. We are very pleased to get this project and are looking forward to working together with the guys at Aspiro.

We're hoping for a relase this half of 2011, but that is up for Aspiro to decide so stay tuned for more news :)

Also, we've gotten some media coverage here in Norway already. Check out these article in digi.no (norwegian / english) and amobil.no (norwegian / english). Oh, and those are Google Translate english, so don't complain to me if it's messed up ;)

Anways, exciting times for us here at Cutehacks!
