Why? Because it is impossible for Qt to implement all Android features e.g.:
* listening for Android O.S. notifications:
** sd card notifications: bad removal, eject, mounted, unmounted, etc.
** network notifications: network up/down.
** battery level and charging state.
* accessing Android O.S. features:
** telephony (Initiate calls, MMS, SMS, etc.)
** speech (TTS and Speech Recognizer)
** system accounts
** system preferences
* create own Android Activities and Services.
The audience will learn how to extend their qt apps using JNI to access any Android features that are not available on Qt.
Previous knowledge about Qt, threads & Android API is needed.
