Along with a massive amount of positive feedback and interest, Ubuntu for phones has been paired with an exciting platform for creating designed-with-Ubuntu-for-phones-in-mind applications (running on the desktop, too), meaning, users/developers are able to download and use the Ubuntu QML toolkit (exciting infrastructure backed by clear official explanations, details, how-tos, etc).
It seems that hours after the announcement of the Ubuntu QML toolkit (preview stage), interested third-party developers have started to discover the abilities presented/contained by the QML toolkit, furthermore, creating (and demoing) applications with the QML toolkit.
The below clip (presenting a game created by the third-party developer nono68200) shows a fresh just-created application, where the user is to type various values (such as
80, etc), in order to discover the accurate number.
Pleasant animations, rounded search/typing areas, "lazy" scrolling, fancy menus, etc, are available to be utilized and implemented by developers, in order to create overall interesting, good-looking applications.
