I really don't understand why QtWidgets are not suitable for mobile plataforms. What is the technicall reason ?
Following the Qt "code once deploy everywhere" I have apps with pratically the same code for desktop, symbian and Blackberry. Sometimes the requirements for technicall / engineering apps are just to have minimal, simple, accurate, funtional app interface instead of a shiny, full of glow interface, and thats perflectly achievable with Widgets. As for iOS style, I think it could be done for mobile the same way it is done for desktop, even if it's not 100% native.

The whole point is that you shouldn't use QtWidgets at all on mobile 
platforms. Just don't.
