Qt Quick on a Samsung Galaxy Tab – Devinco visits

Today Ole-Johan from Devinco visited us. He is interested in Qt on several platforms, including Android. So, while Espen and I were busy fixing the last bugs in our Yr app, Ole-Johan was working on getting the Android port (by BogDan and friends) running on his spanking new Samsung Galaxy Tab! And boy did it run :)

  1. Bravo ! looks smooth ! Can’t wait for a release.

  2. Wow, cool demo! Thanks for sharing. That tablet really makes a great Qml development target. Is Qt there already hardware accelerated?

    However, it is noticeable that the buttons and items in the standard Qml demos are much too small even for the Galaxy’s low 170 PPI. In the video, you tap twice to hit something.

    • Indeed the buttons are too small. I always hated that with the samegame demo ;) “New game” and the rest are too small. Qt is just using the raster engine here, so there is lots and lots of room for acceleration – think scenegraph on this thing ;D

  3. Nice job guys!
    Keep creating nice demos and good work!

  4. Is there a demonstration or source code we can use to make our own?

    • We are gonna make a blog post on how to do it yourself at some point – we just gotta find the time :D

      • This will be great!
        I will come again to this page and if I can help you to do this “howto” let me know. I’m working on my galaxy with Qt and I can share what I discover.

  6. Very impressive. A question, have you implemented a set Qt ‘Lighthouse’ plugins to allow QWS running on Andriod?

  9. Thanks for the idea. It works but qt.labs.particles doesn’t work.
    I’ve tried it:
    Create with qtcreator (necessitas) a qt quick project.
    Put the qml sources in the qml folder (all files in the same folder worked for me).
    And then remove the qt.labs.particles code.
    Very nice …
    How does you solved the problem?
