We do recommend using QtQuick especially for touch-oriented UIs.  MessageDialog from QtQuick.Dialogs will be shown at a reasonable size, not full screen (although it still has other bugs, mainly about correct sizing of the dialog if you ask for too many buttons or change the number of buttons after showing it; but the simple use cases are generally OK).  It's also possible in the future that there could be a native message dialog implementation, as has already been done on Android; but I don't know the details of how that is done with Cocoa APIs and whether or how soon it will be done.  (It could probably be done similarly on OSX, too.)  So for now, MessageDialog in QtQuick.Dialogs uses the pure QML implementation on iOS, and there is also the plain widget implementation in QMessageBox.
