A new video has surfaced at Nokia Developers Forum. The video is about the Chinese social networking app Kaixin. In the video, Li Wenjing, Product manager, Kaixin Mobile Division is seen talking about the mobile version of Kaixin, now available for Nokia N9 smartphone.
The mobile version of Kaixin is built using Qt. According to Zhang Xiaoyong, an engineer at Accenture, it took three developers about two months to complete the project. Using Qt SDK was apparently easy for the developers. He also mentioned that the developers are working on the Symbian version of the app. Since Qt is cross platform, the Symbian version of the app will be developed using the same code.
