Fishermen like to know where and what kind of fishes they catch. Because it's too boring to catch the same (kind of) fish all the time. This Qt Fish -application tries to solve that problem. It will keep track of the fishes and where the fisherman got those from. Application should take location and notes for the fish. It should also take following information: date, time, weight, length. The user can share the information with others, or just save it so they can use it on a computer or mobile phone. User can change the settings : FTP settings where they will connect, what database (XML-file) will be used.

We used SVN in projects.forum.nokia.com/home
FTP : to download or upload files
Add Fish: adding fish to database
Options :Satelite info, rename database, settings
Rename database dialog
From MainViews “Options”-SoftKey user can change database name
From MainViews “Options”-SoftKey user can change settings
Location for the fish is also shown.
Add fish dialog
User can add fish location, name, weight , date and time. Also a note. And GPS is saved also to the fish location.
How to run software
Install qtfish.sis to your Symbian touch device. It requires QtMobility 1.0 and Qt 4.6.2 libraries to be installed.
When running the application, if soft keys are not visible in the simulator, set DEFINES -= _MAEMOBUILD in project file to DEFINES += _MAEMOBUILD to switch from soft keys to visible buttons in most dialogs.
Qt is nice easy software to make applications (mostly because SIGNAL's and SLOT's). The emulator on other hand seem to be working on some computers differently. And because of this we had some problem, for example in the softbuttons seemed to work only one of us (3 different computers). Also some problems occurred when we implemented ftp, and that probably was also because emulator..
