Blog Series started: ‘Qt for mobile business apps’

The mobile world is x-platform. Developing Consumer Apps this means:

  • Android
  • iOS

Developing business apps the world is different. You have to support

  • Android
  • BlackBerry 10
  • iOS
  • Windows

I’m developing business apps since 30+ years and as you probably know last 4 years I was focussed on BlackBerry 10 and that’s still true: most of my projects for Enterprise / Business customers still are on BlackBerry 10, but since BlackBerry introduced a first Android Device secured by BlackBerry (BlackBerry PRIV) there are more and more x-platform-projects coming.

BlackBerry is supporting x-platform great:

  • BES 12 (Manage Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows, OSX, support Android for Work, Samsung KNOX, Good, iOS9)
  • Software (BBM available on Android, BlackBerry 10, iOS, BlackBerry Hub, Calendar, … on Android)
  • Devices (BlackBerry10: Classic, Passport, Z30, Android: PRIV)
  • IoT (secure IoT, just announced BlackBerry Radar for Trucks)

There are many ways to develop mobile apps x-platform: HTML5/JS, Native, Hybrid

and there are many frameworks helping you to solve the challenge not to write extra apps for each platform:

  • Angular2
  • Ionic
  • Cordova
  • React Native
  • Xamarin, Qt


I’m exploring Qt for x-platform mobile apps. While developing a real-life business app for Enterprise customer I’ll blog about my experiences.

Just started a blog series ‘Qt for mobile business apps’ where you read ‘Why Qt…’, Setup Qt, prepare platforms and devices, … up to complete sample apps. I’ll tweet @ekkescorner as soon as new articles will be added.
