Qt Development

Having a two-decade long track-record, Qt continues forging ahead reinforcing its position of a powerful cross-platform technology for crafting compelling, visually rich UIs and applications for a gamut of platforms.

Qt Cross-platform Development Services for Unbeaten Productivity

With hands-on skills in C++ and a natural impetus to lock in more productive results, Softeq enthusiastically took up the role of a Qt developer years ago. Built of a comprehensive ecosystem of libraries and development tools, this advanced framework stands ‘head and shoulders’ above other rival technologies. Qt has been invaluable to Softeq’s software engineers in helping develop the most rewarding user experience by supporting impressive data visualization, fine 3D object rendering along with native-looking and fast-performing software solutions designed for some of the hottest industries that are currently on the surge.

  • UI enabled Smart Home device ecosystems
  • UI enabled embedded systems
  • Streaming systems, walkie-talkies, IPTV
  • Computer utilities (e.g. calculators, text editors, players)
  • Messengers
  • Mobile and desktop clients (e.g. Google Drive, Facebook, Twitter)
  • Graphic tool plug-ins
  • Linux driven UI enabled apps
 

Multiple Choice Technology

Depending on your goals and desired end-solution application, we select the best-suitable approach to the UI development employing Qt’s ready-to-use controls and out-of-the box functionality:

Qt Quick

Easily scalable adaptive custom UIs for various form factors with touch screen support

Qt Widgets

Rapid UI prototyping for a traditional desktop-style user experience

Web/Hybrid

HTML 5 for dynamic web docs, Qt Quick for a native like interaction

 

Code Once, Deploy Across Multiple Devices

Written once, the Qt driven source code base lends itself to excellent reuse on a dozen of most popular platforms, including mobile, desktop, embedded, as well as connected devices, with just a tidbit of minor tweaks required to bring the resulting UI to completion.

Mobile

  • Windows Phone
  • iOS
  • Android

Custom Mobile

  • Sailfish
  • Tizen
  • Ubuntu Touch
  • Blackberry 10

Desktop

  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Linux

Embedded

  • VxWorks
  • QNX

Backed by years-long dedicated practice in each of these target domains, we know how to make the most of this outstanding tech advantage.

Qt for Rapid Prototyping and Deployment

When it comes to developing UIs for embedded devices, no other technology is on par with Qt. Irrespective of whether the future device prototype is available or not, having just the expected embedded product screen resolution at hand will be sufficient for starting the UI development. Add here a lightweight customizable software stack and a special toolchain supplied with the pack, and we get a real ready-made embedded environment that runs on a variety of supported hardware. Direct device deployment, on-device debugging, and profiling speed-up the development process thus reducing the time-to-market.

Qt for Mobile

Qt for Yielding Productivity and Efficiency

Qt elegantly combines functionality of sleek and snappy UIs with productivity of native-looking apps. Thanks to the underlying C++ library classes, which have highly intuitive APIs and modular structure, the Qt framework provides robust cross-platform and multi-screen development capabilities. The Qt Quick tool allows building compelling custom, highly dynamic UIs featuring fluid animation and special effects functioning seamlessly across a variety of mobile devices. The Qt Creator IDE has all the productivity tools in place to notably accelerate the app development time.

 

Qt Development for the Internet of Things

Qt is perfectly tailored for creating connected objects. For our team of seasoned software developers, electronics engineers, and embedded programmers, which proudly holds the Top IoT Developer title, this framework is the go-to toolchain for implementing seamlessly connected, clearly communicating, and intuitive IoT solutions. The technology allows wireless sensor-enabled devices to upload data into the Qt Cloud, which can be accessed and managed from any gadget in the loop — a mobile phone, tablet, desktop computer, or browser. The unifying feature is a scalable UI written in Qt/C++, which is reused for each client within the connected ecosystem.

Qt Developer's Take: to Qt or Not to Qt?

Still hesitating about the technology choice for your current cross-platform needs? We’ve summarized the key pros and cons the way we at Softeq appreciate them to help you make a more informed decision:

Pros

  • Expedites the development process using the comprehensive C++ source code library
  • Modular library structure — smarter approach to what extent the code could be used
  • Supports all major OS and platforms
  • Unbeaten capabilities in creating sleek GUIs
  • Single code for crafting a single common UI regardless of the platform
  • Compact, fast-performing apps — critical for mobile phones and smart watches
  • Allows focusing on innovation instead of the infrastructure setup
  • Multiple license options: Commercial, LGPL, GPL
  • Powerful built-in localization tool

Cons

  • Large library size — might negatively affect the mobile solution performance
  • High entry threshold
  • High Commercial license cost
  • Compared to using C# and Java, C++ based implementation takes more time
