NewsPopper - Read your favorite news sites and share them! [Early prototypes & sketches]

With NewsPopper, you can get the latest news easily from favorite sites that interests you, and share among your friends.
Set up alerts so NewsPopper --as it name says-- will "pop" the news for you on your mobile device!
You can get notified when your friend comments on the news they read, or liked.

Sounds interesting ? It should :-)

It's a mobile application I'm currently working on. The app uses the latest powerful Qt 1.1 SDK and will run on all mobile devices that support Qt framework (which means modern Symbian S60, Symbian^3, Maemo/N900, and MeeGo devices like the upcoming Nokia N9/N950).

It will support touch and swipe gestures (on all touch devices and especially on the Nokia N9) and should be very user friendly from the first start.

The images shown are some sketches and how the current prototype looks.

When it's finished (hopefully!) you'll find it in an Ovi Store near you. :-)

I highly recommend you to get these resources to gain skills on Qt Development on desktop and mobile devices :

  1. C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 (2nd Edition) - Prentice Hall
  2. Beginning Nokia Apps Development: Qt and HTML5 for Symbian and MeeGo
  3. Foundations of Qt Development
  4. Advanced Qt Programming: Creating Great Software with C++ and Qt 4
