There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The main problem with this book is it was published to quick. The authors are excellent writers however they appear to have written on pre release software. The topics in turn.
This presentation is good and authors have clearly used documentation from the Qt Development team. Nothing to add over the Qt website though
This is again taken from other sites and books some examples, but not really target to Nokia Mobile phones basically attempts to show how a web page in HTML5 is built. Really no better than a clever Hello World.
This really falls apart here this is complex and instead the writer focuses on obscure formal testing method. This would not pass the testing required to get the application onto the OVI store. Ignores the problems involved in getting a certificate
The review title "Maemo NOT MeeGo, and lots of Beta dev not final version" says it all.
Feels like a sub editor and marketing has changed all references of Maemo v5 to MeeGo.
The is no mention of the integrated IDE based on Qt which will build and sign application for Symbian and Maemo 6 (AKA Maemo). This example were not available.
Finally the plans are now for Qt to go to Windows 7 and Symbian Anna. The version reviewed was Qt 4.5 and not the current Qt 4.7
The fact that there are so many boxes splattered with "star" box indicating an early beta version was used and perhaps bypassing a tech editors complaints
No description of the Ovi Store and the fact that you can now join for "Free" not 50 euro and you can get a Symbian developer certificate for your application as a free loan.
This is a serious omission.
I gave this two stars for the fact that the Qt section is a nice read, otherwise I would have given one star. This really should have been tested and updated. I used the Kindle version to review because this was cheaper.
The difficulty is this is the first and possibly only "book" written on Symbian development there was still time to test and remove all the beta references. In 2012 development will be geared to Windows 7 phone following the merger(?) with Microsoft phone developers, making this book no longer relevant
