Qt "For this preliminary release, we are focusing on the developer experience, working to enable Qt developers to easily run and test their applications on Android devices. While there's nothing preventing you from deploying your app to an app store with Qt 5.1, we're recommending that people wait until Qt 5.2 before they do that, as we'd like to put some more work into improving that experience: making more options for how your app is deployed, adding more polish in general, and adding more support for Android APIs, both by allowing you to extend your app with Java code or by mapping them in C++ APIs, whichever makes the most sense."

I always maintained that if you had different layouts depending on what form factor you ran it on (like Android apps might have an extra frame when running on tablets), it shouldn't be too difficult to write an app that runs on all three, and probably the web as well, if you had an HTML/JS framework to work with like MS does.


Ubuntu is claiming their apps (based on Qt) will run on all 3 platforms. In fact, they say a running app can switch its display from phone to desktop when you dock your phone.
