The Magnificent Seven Ovi Store Products

In browsing the Ovi Store, Ewan has come across some new (to him) applications and lots of indications that the the Store is “more than just apps” and that it will prove to be one of the most useful resources to developers and consumers alike. So what delights has he found? Read on for the 'magnificent seven' examples from the Ovi Store.

Read on in the full article.

Wow. Is this the best that Ovi has to offer? Then the I guess Ovi people have some homework to do.

Have you actually tried that theme before posting about it?

It's listed as compatible with the 5800 yet it looks awful when in use. PiZero's "pulsar" theme would have been a much better example of a paid-for theme.

The facebook app is a bit naff at the moment too because it's very slow and very unstable.

Nowt there for me in that 7. I've picked up some useful stuff on Ovi Store but nothing on that list.

Yep if this is all Ovi Store has to offer, it's in a lot of trouble.

Main trouble Ovi has at the moment is that most of it is overpriced, just compare the prices with the stuff on Apple's App store, a lot of symbian developers really need to review their pricing structure.

Ewan is pointing out the types of content you can expect. We'll almost certainly follow up with some application specific stuff too. i.e. our favourite apps in the Ovi Store.

Incidentally Mippin really is very good. But the irony is that its almost entirely web based (I accept it is not a cool or sexy application, but it is one I use regularly) - it's not just a 7 day wonder.

How well is the facebook widget tied into the nokia contacts?
Can you update your contacts email address, photo, etc from facebook?

I'm surprised you didn't mention AP News. I've used on both the 5800xm and E71 and absolutely love the app, especially the video feature.

Give it a try and see if you like it.

It's hilarious how some folks have a quasi-obsession in bashing Nokia and almost attacking people who say that its not ALL bad and that it has SOME potential..

Any company that is number 1 in its market will get bashed, it is actually a kind of compliment. It's undeniably the best and some people can't handle that.

And Ovi is the best app store? On which planet?

Take a look at the Pre and iPhone 3.0 to see how far Nokia has fallen behind.

Hold on, I must have been mistaken but it seemed like you credited your star wars quote as a "bad movie"!
Oh well sorry AAS but I guess I have to move to Symbian-Freak now. That is of course until they commit star wars blasphemy as well...
