Intel AppUp Supporting MeeGo Apps Now

Beside Windows applications now also MeeGo apps can be submitted to the Intel AppUp developer program now.

But what the heck is “MeeGo”?

MeeGoYes, I also did not hear about this operating system before. So let’s see what the MeeGo webpage itself tells us about this system:

The MeeGo project provides a Linux-based, open source software platform for the next generation of computing devices. The MeeGo software platform is designed to give developers the broadest range of device segments to target for their applications, including netbooks, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, smart TVs, tablets and more – all using a uniform set of APIs based on Qt. For consumers, MeeGo will offer innovative application experiences that they can take from device to device.

OK, so basically MeeGo is (yet) another platform for netbooks, tablets and other mobile devices. But Intel really is focussing on pushing this new platform and we’ll see how much success it will have at the end.

Anyway, I’ll try to port at least one of my apps to this new system – just to see how it works.

Did you tried MeeGo yourself already or even published an app for it?
