      Suggested by BogDan Vatra in his blog (http://www.kdab.com/qt-on-android-episode-1/) and several other places around the web, native controls are promised on Qt 5.2.0, (in Vatra's blog is promised both for widgets and quick application projects) but as of this moment, nor the 5.2 beta or the RC1 built from revision 5036d822de (as reported by Qt creator about window) produce any application (of any kind) that works with "native" look and feel, at least for a basic text box and a push button.

      If that is going to be the final state of the controls in 5.2 release, please state so at least on the most visible web sites about the 5.2 release characteristics. I believe for several users, wanting to take Qt as a new solution for Android development, non "native" look and feel is something between a nuisance and a big no-no.

      Not even the simple text box input is working fine with SwiftKey keyboard, as reported in https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-34467
