MeeGo Touch is deprecated, do not use it in new projects as it is scheduled for removal from MeeGo
MeeGo Touch is a Qt-based application development framework targeting mobile touch screen devices. It is part of the MeeGo Platform API (not part of the MeeGo Core API, and therefore not guaranteed to be available or supported after MeeGo 1.1). It provides all the necessary building blocks for creating native applications that follow the MeeGo Handset UX guidelines. The framework itself is built on top of the Qt Graphics View Framework.
