Video: Super Mario demo with pure QML from Web Developer new to QML/Qt “very easy to learn”.

Here’s a video from that Jim found showing the product (Super Mario) of a web developer who moved to the Qt/QML environment. They found it very easy to learn which is great since MeeGo and Symbian apps will share Qt based apps.

Here’s a game I made with pure QML (no C++), costs around 4 days. QML is very easy to learn, I was a web developer and had no experience whatsoever with QML or Qt, but made this game while I learn the languge. Very easy and pleasant. The video is a bit laggy because of the recording software, the game itself runs smoothly. PS: The game has a small bug of detecting platform, you will see in the video.

Controls by left, right, z key. Not counting graphics and audio it’s 7 QML files which sums up around 12KB.

    Very encouraging. It is a shame Nokia is not doing more to promote developer testimonies like this, although they are doing a few, the more the better.

    AND releasing how much developers are earning. Currently the idea that Ovi doesn’t make money for developers is the perception and this is blatantly untrue.

        On a side note I dont know what those reviewers were talking about when they said they could use the N8 for almost 2 days before needing to charge

        I suppose its because Im using my wifi intensely and I have the wifi “power saver” off

        but still the battery gets drained fast

          I can go 2 days or more without charging too.

          It depends entirely what you do with it, of course.

          Look, if you sat in a house for a week and had all the lights on, the stove on, the electric heating on etc, and then the next week sat in the same house with just a couple of lights on, would you expect the electricity bill to be the same both weeks? No, I thought not 🙂

          Can someone please explain to me how anyone thinks that if they force any device to do way more work it will use the same, or even just a similar, amount of power to not making it do hardly any work?

          With reasonable use, the N8 lasts perfectly well. The point is, how does it last compared to rivals? Answer, it always wins.

            well i just expected more since most of the reviews seemed to indicate they used the n8 intensely

            obviously videos etc are gonna burn thru the battery

      I think you downloaded the old version of Mobbler….I take it you are using a Symbian 3 device and downloaded the Symbian 5th edition Mobbler app. I did the same thing too, I could see album art but didnt hear any music.

      There is a beta version of Mobbler for Symbian 3 available. Although it is a beta, it works perfectly fine on my N8. You can download the beta Mobbler app from this website http://code.google.com/p/mobbler/downloads/list?q=label:Beta

      Hopefully it works for you!

    I have been thinking to try this platform too. Never been into mobile app development ever but this QT seems very interesting to give a try.
