Clock My World by Pipould is our Featured Project of the week. This Qt/QML based project provide users with the sunrise/sunset timings of their region (established using GPS). In addition, users also have the option to look at various sunrise/sunset timings around the world with respect to their current location/timezone.
The primary reason for us to select this project the fact that its users have consistently developed it over the last year. The result is great source code and Wiki documentation, and an installable file in its Files for anyone who wants to try it out on their device.
Thanks to the project team for your dedication – we hope you will continue to do the same in future as well along with some new cool projects.

TwimGo is an open source Twitter client for Symbian and MeeGo devices written entirely in Qt Quick. The app provides both the basic functionality you’d expect, including home screen, mentions, favourites, timelines, search, lists, trends, along with more advanced functionality like searching for mentioned hashtags and opening tweet detail. The project moderation team think this is one of the best twitter clients available on Symbian.
TwimGo is also one of the most popular on Nokia Projects, with 60 followers. We really like the fact that its still a very active project, and that it uses the ticketing system to track bugs and enhancements. It would be great if the tickets were associated with milestones so we could see when releases are expected, but given the team are almost always active, we know that new releases aren’t going to be long in coming!
There isn’t a great deal of documentation, but the fact that Qt Quick is quite comprehensible and everything is open source the project means that even relative programming novices can learn something from this project. Other users will be able to use it to find out how to implement more advanced functionality, for example authentication.
We recommend you try this app – you can download it from the project summary page or from Nokia Store.
