There are still many (the most) applications developed with Qt that never will 
see any "app store".
Qt is used in many embedded an control systems where there is now use fro any 
app store.  
The software world consists of more than mobile and "app" worlds.
My programs i.e. work in certified avionics systems, flying in helicopters.
