Porting your Qt app to a phone! Win!

Qt-Apps.org is dedicated to hosting and promoting free Qt applications and they have just announced a free software community competition for porting Qt apps to smartphones. Those two great motivators, phones and cash, are both on offer. Interested?

"Take your application from the desktop and bring it into the hand-held world via the Ovi store", Qt-apps.org's Frank Kalitschek recently announced on their official blog.

If you have a Qt desktop application or are building a Qt desktop application, this is your chance to reach out to a new userbase with community made software.  The competition is designed to give desktop Qt developers some additional incentives for porting their applications to mobile, and to spread free Qt software further into the mobile domain.

It's a simple contest. To take part, you need to submit the ported application for Ovi Store signing by one of the two deadlines:

  • Early bird entries - December 31st
  • Standard entries - February 28th

There are already some free software Qt applications in Ovi, and if you enter, your application might be next to reach the growing number smartphone users downloading from Ovi (3 million downloads a day at last count). And you're in the running to win some exiting prizes.

You should start at once. Five early birds who submit their ported Qt application to Ovi before December 31 will be selected by the jury to win a Nokia N900 mobile computer. The deadline for taking part of the main competition with its 10.000 Euro first prize (and more N900s for runners up), is February 28.

Interested?
