Sean Clark from mp3Car speaks with Justin from ICS, who has made a demo piece of software to highlight how easy it can be to develop QT apps. These apps are built using QML, which is specifically designed for creating user interfaces.
Some of the really attractive features of this new QML is that it has great animated transitions and state changes built into the language. It can even give you that "flick to scroll - bounce at the end" feeling.
Now, photoshop can be utilized to design these interfaces. This creates a method for rapid development where the designer creates the interface in photoshop and the programmer can then work with each photoshop object as a QML item.

Very cool stuff, thanks for decided to go the open source route. I'm fairly certain I'll be using bits and pieces of that in my car, that's for sure Source code is now available via a tarball on ICS's landing page for the demo. It includes the Photoshop files used to generate to UI. http://www.ics.com/services/qtquickSource code is now available. Including the original photoshop files. Eventually I want to get this in a public source code repository like gitorious.
