What does the app need to do?  I'd try to make it web based unless
there's a good reason not to.  That's even if it just runs on the
user's desktop; run the http listener on the localhost and let the
user connect to it with a browser.  

However, between those two you mention, wxPython seems easier to use
and runs on more platforms.  On the other hand, it may be less well
maintained than QT.  For example, its current installation script
seems to assume an older version of GTK is installed, and it fails
with newer GTK versions.
