Anyone doing mobile development with Qt and C++? I want to make a crippled but yet functional mobile version of my desktop app. The current issue I see is that my C++ libraries that use curl or other libs for XML and JSON processing won't work and I'll have to rewrite them using Qt classes, which is such a shame. Anyone been here? What did you choose?
I know nothing about iphone, but if you want to target Android, then you can try ndk, CURL as well as libxml can be build on ndk without any problem.
QT also have a version whcih support Android

I done lots of Qt/C++ development, but no mobile. Qt has plenty of support for XML. Not sure if there is any support for JSON.

I've checked some of their examples. The resulting apk for distribution of a very simple example is 20MB. This seems a lot to me for a companion mobile app.
Anyway, it is worth spending some time on deciding on the stack before doing any real work. If anyone have any real experience with business oriented mobile app, please share your wisdom!

That will depend on how you configure Qt and what libraries you use.
My Hyper Plan Qt application installer is 4.6 MB on Windows and 7.3 MB on Mac (compressed).
