Hi Spencer,
  your mail is definitely not spam. It's a bit off-topic, possibly :-)

I don't know wx much; I love Qt and QML and I'd recommend you to at
least have a try at it, then you decide for yourself.

Well, I'm in love with my Ubuntu phone, but it's not for everyone. If
you are a geek, then it's probably the best thing you could ever dream
of, but it has its shortcomings (which will eventually be addressed).

But Qt does run on iOS too, so there's no need for you to switch, if you
only want to try out Qt on mobile.

As far as snaps are concerned, you definitely want to know that the snap
format is not supported by iOS, nor (currently) by Ubuntu phones.
