School Started and Qt on iOS

Sorry I haven't done too much work on ROV-Suite recently.  I've been pretty busy with school starting, college applications, Robotics team planning (I'm now the team lead) and other programming projects.

This year at school, I'm taking 5 AP courses (Physics, Spanish 4, English, Government, Calculus BC) and so my schedule will be pretty packed.  I won't have too much time to work on as many side projects as I did last year.  Also, I'm the team lead for my Robotics team, which will be a large time commitment.  Finally, the essays involved in college applications and the applications themselves will be a large time-sink.  What I'm trying to say is: don't expect too many updates to ROV-Suite or my other projects this school year.

The good news is that I have successfully written a QML application for iOS (I ported it from my Android/OSX/Windows/Linux code with only slight modifications)!  I'm really excited that the "Qt4iOS" project was far enough along for me to be able to easily use it.  I used Xcode 4.4.1 (on OSX 10.8) and I used the LLVM GCC compiler toolchain.  It works great on my iPhone!  I'll be writing more iOS apps and games in the future (possibly with the help of one of my friends).

I'm going to write a nice tutorial (with screenshots) about developing for iOS with Qt + QML sometime soon.  Thankfully it's pretty easy to get it all setup and working!

Thanks for stopping by!
