So I got a Nook Tablet so figured why not review it

on November 21st, 2011 by Richard Orelup in Development - General - Mobile App - Web tech

I’ve never really felt a need to have a tablet. I’ve had an iPad around from basically the time they came out at work and it was never more than a giant Angry Birds player. I’d see others using theirs and anything they did other then games I already did with my laptop (and better because tablets aren’t really good devices for creating content.) Lately though I’ve been working on a couple different projects that are mainly for end user consumption so I had been kicking...Read More!

QML States and Transitions

on August 22nd, 2011 by Wade Shull in Development - Mobile App - QML - Qt

]Coming from a non-programming background sometimes leads me to be intimidated just by the thought of something that appears to be complex. One of those ideas was transitions. QML has the ability to provide the programmer with a range of different transitions to allow their app to be very fancy/professional looking. Once I really sat down and saw what it took to do a transition I was amazed on how simple it really was. There are two steps to making a transition happen. The first step is setting...Read More!

PageStackWindow in MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan for Orientation and Transitions

on August 1st, 2011 by Wade Shull in Development - Mobile App - QML - Qt

When I first received my N950 from the Qt Ambassadors program I was super excited to get my apps running on it that I had written in QML in Qt Creator. Because of the multi-platform functionality of Qt Creator it only took a day to download the new SDK and compile my apps for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. It installed without a hitch, but there were two small problems. There was an annoying toolbar at the bottom of the app that was empty and also they were locked in landscape mode. This needed to be fixed....Read More!

How to get MeeGo 1.2 Emulator in Qt Creator with Nokia’s Qt SDK

on July 8th, 2011 by Wade Shull in Development - Mobile App - QML - Qt

The thought of MeeGo has been around a good long while now. In my opinion it has the potential to be the biggest mobile OS out there, but only time will tell that. With Nokia introducing the N9 though there has been an increase in development community activity. One of the things pushing this is that Nokia put MeeGo 1.2 right in their nice Qt SDK. Following on Twitter I have seen mixed messages on if getting all the correct components to compile in MeeGo 1.2 is easy or not. I dove into this...Read More!

QtCreator, QML and console.log

on April 7th, 2011 by Wade Shull in Development - Mobile App - QML - Qt

I hadn’t really planned on posting another article this soon, but I feel I should write about the command – console.log.  console.log is an extremely powerful command that is easy to forget and is possibly not widely known about.  For both of those reason I am pushing this post out today.  For those who don’t know what it is, console.log() is a command that will not effect your program, but will spit information out to you at the bottom of QtCreator.  This gives you the ability...Read More!

QML in Qt adventure

on April 5th, 2011 by Wade Shull in Development - Mobile App - QML - Qt

After buying my Nokia n900 last year I have always had a small interest in writing apps for it.  There were two different problems with this want.  The first was that I didn’t really have a great idea for an app to write.  The second problem is that I am not a programmer by trade.  Another problem arose a few months into owning this incredible phone, Nokia abandoned it.  It was hard for me to justify taking the time to learning a programming language for an operating system that had no...Read More!
