Qt applications run natively on all major desktop & mobile OS: Windows, Linux, OS X, Android, iOS. Qt 5.6 adds support for all Windows 10 devices & macOS (El Capitan). Whether you want your UI to look native or look like yours – unique and branded – device-to-device, Qt is designed with internet of everything in mind.
Qt 5.6 introduces cross-platform high-DPI support for easy configuration of new or existing Qt UIs that automatically scale across different screens sizes. Read the Qt Blog post and watch the Qt World Summit 2015 High-DPI session recording on the Qt Studios YouTube channel.
In addition to libraries and tools, Qt for Device Creation comes with Qt Virtual Keyboard, a full virtual keyboard solution for your touch-based, joystick or scroll-wheel based UIs. In addition to wide language and keyboard layout support, you get handwriting recognition support.

You can build and configure Qt and all the related utilities directly through Yocto Project tools & recipes. You can get your embedded production environment up-to-speed immediately with embedded deployment using our fully configurable and customizable pre-built “Boot to Qt” software stack.
Qt Documentation – Qt for Device Creation
The Qt framework & tooling including Qt Creator IDE is all about cross-platform development, so we’ve now made it possible to also develop embedded Linux devices under Windows host computer. Your Qt projects can be directly deployed to your embedded Linux device from Qt Creator running Windows.

To give you even more out-of-the-box, we’ve created a new set of UI controls for modern device UIs with a set of customizable UI controls plus templates for creating your own.
The future of UIs is moving rapidly towards 3D and so is Qt with a 2nd preview of the Qt 3D module providing easy 3D graphics integration & interaction directly via convenient Qt APIs (Key contributor: KDAB).
Now with Qt 5.6, small businesses can get Qt for Application Development at a reduced cost.
