Qt Question

• Aug 13, 2012 - 14:21

I read an article on the tech site The Verge here that says that a company called Digia acquired Qt from Nokia and plans to enable it on Android, iOS, and Windows 8.

I know that there would need to be quite a bit of tweaking of MuseScore to make it compatible with a touch interface, but doesn't this theoretically mean that a full version of MuseScore could be made for Android, iOS, or Windows 8 portable devices like the iPhone, iPad, or Android phones and tablets?


Yes it is theoretically possible, but it's far from trivial. Werner and lasconic have been working for the past 1.5 years to refactor the MuseScore codebase and prepare it for mobile devices (iOS, Android). The refactoring facilitated also large changes for the new MuseScore release (2.0).

More info about this mobile development can be found at:

This app contains the Open Goldberg score made by Werner with the MuseScore nightly while the app is made by lasconic.

So as you can see, the mobile development only focuses on display and play functionality. Making an editor like MuseScore is a different ballgame.
